When Samuel and Martha are sent to Norway to live with their Aunt Edna after their parents' deaths, they soon learn her most important rule: NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GO INTO THE FOREST. She doesn't offer an explanation, but Samuel suspects it might have something to do with a strange guidebook he finds in her attic, The Creatures of Shadow Forest. And when Martha wanders into the trees and is captured by some of the creatures described in the book, Samuel has no choice but to go in after her. What he finds there is an eerie world populated by trolls, truth pixies and other fantastical creatures.

Professional reviews

"Simon Vance brings Matt Haig's magical tale to life, employing his vast vocal talents to immerse the listener in an eerie world populated by a fearful aunt, a faithful dog, a fanatical hermit, and fantastical Norse creatures. Vance's skill with accents gives each character a unique voice and breathes life into all. Orphans Samuel and Martha are sent to Norway to live with Aunt Eda at the edge of Shadow Forest. She has rules for everything, and the most important is: Never--under any circumstances--go into the forest. Strange creatures and occurrences abound in the place where Uncle Henrik disappeared 10 years earlier. When Samuel sees Martha wander into the forest, he follows to rescue her . . . and the magical adventure begins. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
