Down the Mysterly River is the children's book debut of Bill Willingham, the creator of the #1 New York Times-bestselling graphic novel series Fables. Max 'the Wolf' is a top notch Boy Scout, an expert at orienteering and a master of being prepared. He finds himself, with no recollection of his immediate past, lost in an unfamiliar wood. Even odder still, he encounters a badger named Banderbrock, a black bear named Walden, and McTavish the Monster (who might also be an old barn cat) - all of whom talk and who are as clueless as Max. Unless he can solve the mystery of the strange forested world he's landed in, Max may find himself and his friends changed beyond recognition, lost in a lost world forever.
