    Mary Stewart, my favorite romantic suspense novelist, tried her hand at children's books once or twice.

I ran across this one in the library, inexplicably shelved in the adult fantasy/SF section, and decided to check it out. English siblings John and Margaret (ages not specified, but they read as somewhere in the 10 to 13 age range) are traveling in Germany with their parents. They stop to rest in a forest called Wolfenwald (Wolf Wood), where a magical spell--which conveniently enables them to speak and understand medieval German--takes the two children back to a time long ago, where they meet a man in the forest named Lord Mardian. An evil magician has secretly placed Mardian, the local duke's best friend, under a spell that turns him into a wolf every night. Mardian ran away and is hiding in the forest, while the magician has changed his appearance to look like Mardian and has taken his place at court, where he is conniving to off the duke and seize power. However, the real Mardian still has a golden medallion that the duke will recognize, and he asks the children to sneak into the castle, give the medallion to the duke and explain to him what has happened. But the children are too worried about the danger, so he sends them back home. The end. . . . Haha, NOT. What self-respecting kid would turn down the chance at an adventure like this? They laugh in the face of danger! This book is written on a middle grade level and is kind of old-fashioned and dated. Though it was published in 1980, it reads more like kids’ fantasy from the 60s or 70s. I got bored and skimmed through the last half. It might appeal to some, but I think that, especially nowadays, there are a lot better magical fantasies out there. 2.75 stars.

    A children’s book by one of my favorite authors, Mary Stewart. What a delightful little tale this is, full of the kind of magic that makes the ancient fairytales so pleasing. I kept wishing I had a very young granddaughter to read it to and felt a bit sad to know that it existed when my granddaughter was just the right age and we missed it. The writing is superb, full of Mary Stewart’s unparalleled eye for detail: But otherwise the forest was still, with the heavy, sleepy stillness of summer.

The writing is superb, full of Mary Stewart’s unparalleled eye for detail: But otherwise the forest was still, with the heavy, sleepy stillness of summer. Not that it was really silent. If you lay with your eyes shut, and really tried to listen to the silence, you could hear it; it was made up of thousands of tiny sounds which might be the trees growing, or the toadstools pushing up through the pine needles, or the air breathing gently through the twigs overhead as the sun heated the ground and the moisture drifted upwards from the mosses. Even as an adult, I was transfixed by the tale as it unfolded. And, even though I knew how it was likely to end, it was exciting and charming. Isn’t that, after all, one of the things we loved about the original fairytales...knowing that there was happily ever after at the end: Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty sure to get their princes and the evil enchanters sure to get their due? If your child is a precocious reader, hand her this book. If not, read it to her. Don’t miss the fun.

    Buddy read with Jeannette and Hannah A cute little tale of fantasy and magic brought to life by Mary Stewart’s wonderful prose and gifted story telling. In a nutshell, this is a story of two children coming to the aid of a good werewolf. I won’t say more than that as I don’t want to give away any of the plot. I loved the descriptions of the forest and the sounds of the forest, as well as the cottage and the castle. Not that it was really silent.

Of course the castle has a long abandoned (and therefore forgotten) room which provides access to the castle cellar. The two children, John and Margaret, become Hans and Gretta in the “enchantment” they take part in. Mary Stewart even brings the Duke’s son back into the story at the end which I thought added a nice touch. There were some slightly exciting moments in this fairy tale. I think this would be a good story for young children and I think my children would have enjoyed it, too bad I didn’t know about it when they were young. I also think this story would make a good “read aloud” to children. The copy I read had some very nice illustrations. A sampling from page 54: Already they seemed to belong to this strange, rather alarming, remote and magic age where dukes ruled in lonely castles, and evil men ambitious of power stole a good man’s life and happiness and condemned him to a long prison. They were too young to know that every age is the same, for men do not alter. I expected this tale to be very different from Stewart's other books I have read, and it was!

    Excellent, suspenseful dark fantasy novel, for adults (covering a tragic and realistic enough story) and children (the book being not a brutal or immoral one) alike. One star out for plot inconsistency (the werewolf is initially presented as savage beast, then the author changes her mind and explains the beast is unable to control itself - only! - when hungry) and for some (not many, thank God!) socialist comments, „justified” by authors`s quite poor understanding of medieval morals and manners Excellent, suspenseful dark fantasy novel, for adults (covering a tragic and realistic enough story) and children (the book being not a brutal or immoral one) alike.

    Although not as transporting as her fare for adults, Mary Stewart still displays her talent for storytelling with this enchanting fairytale. I will be keeping this in mind for when I am required as an aunt to do some reading aloud. (The Little Broomstick is a much better children's book from Stewart.)

    This was another book that I made my mom read to me over and over again as a child until she became sick of it. Once I learned to read, this continued to be a favorite. It is not actually written for young children and is probably more appropriate for youths-adults.

    Best enchanting children's book I've read. I love time travel and Ms. Stewart suspends disbelief with razor sharp skill. I felt like I was traveling with John and Margaret Begbie through Wolf Wood. I joined them on their journey through time coming to the aid of a weeping man named Mardian, who was cursed by an evil enchanter, Almeric. Almeric was desperate to take the throne but he first needed to do away with the king and the king's son.

I felt like I was traveling with John and Margaret Begbie through Wolf Wood. I joined them on their journey through time coming to the aid of a weeping man named Mardian, who was cursed by an evil enchanter, Almeric. Almeric was desperate to take the throne but he first needed to do away with the king and the king's son. He couldn't achieve this without getting Mardian out of the way. Mardian had grown up with the King and both wore a talisman to show their loyalty to one another. Almeric managed to cast a spell on Mardian, turning him into the wolf but failed to grab the talisman from him. Almeric then used magic to turn himself into a false Mardian so he could keep a close eye on the King, making sure his health continued to spiral downward. John and Margaret knew they had been transported back in time to help the real Mardian reclaim his place by the King's side and to reveal Almeric's true identity. This is an exceptional story of magic, enchantment, spells, time travel and mystery.

    A Walk in Wolf Wood is a children's book written by the well-known author Mary Stewart. She may be best known for her Merlin Trilogy, although she also wrote many mystery/romance books as well. In this book, she weaves a tale of children on holiday who enter an enchanted forest and end up in a fantastical adventure. For some young readers it may seem rather old-fashioned, but there are many who will enjoy this rather sophisticated magical story.

    My mom used to tell this story while we were working in the garden or canning. I loved the story that I read the book when I was about 12. I reread it a few months ago with my husband and I still love it. A truly magical tale, great for young readers.

    This is obviously a kid's book but it is Mary Stewart, for Pete's sake! So the fairy tale is well done and most intriguing. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it in a heartbeat to a youngster who loves a Narnia-like story. This is obviously a kid's book but it is Mary Stewart, for Pete's sake!

    A re-read from childhood again. I had completely forgotten what this book actually was - I read it very young, and I remember that I thought very highly of it, but I seem to have merged all of its storyline with several other books, and superimposed a Dianne Wynne Jones story onto my copy of this. Very confusing to come back to it and find it's something else altogether!

It has that excellent lack of setup, and complete suspension of disbelief; it's a simple, here we are, and off we go, and there's little more need for introduction or resolution than is received here, but it makes me realise how much time is so often spent on 'character' over plot. And I don't think this really suffers for the amount of description and plot put in place of character. The descriptions delighted me, more so now I know more about the period and their accuracies, I think, but I know they lit my imagination up when I was little (even if I thought some of the scenes were in something else) and so I think the book very much succeeds on all fronts. A quick and easy timepasser now, but something I'm very pleased to have gone back to.

    This book was milder than we expected and I think written for very young children who are just starting to like werewolves, if that could be called a stage of child development. My ten year old found it a bit dull.

It wasn't as bad as, say, any book of the last twenty five years by Disney or Sesame Street, thank heavens. Just...simple. Which could be a really neat choice for a young kid who wants just a taste of suspense but worries that their favorite character might get scared or hurt. It would also be good for struggling readers, because it teaches, but doesn't lose a poetic feel. Too many times people who struggle with reading keep getting fed the starchy stuff when they need some imagination as well. It's a good book.

    I picked this up due to the fact that I have always loved Mary Stewart's Merlin Trilogy. It really reads as being very dated, I don't see a middle-grade reader of this day and age being very accepting of this. I was good, a bit stilted at times. Rife with those inevitable lines that are not so appropriate for younger readers......."Something awful had happened to him," whispered John. "Not just an accident, or getting hurt---and anyway there was no sign of that---but something really awful."

    This review is long overdue, but now I am finally ready to express my excitement with this book! I actually started it a while back and then put it down to read other books. About a couple of days ago, I went back to reading it and am glad I did! The story is riveting and full of surprises! The ending it heart-wrenching (but in a good way). The characters are fun and you cheer for their's and Wolf's victory the entire time. Now I definitely cannot wait to read other books by Mary Stewart!

    This was the book that started my life long love of reading. I was in second grade and my second grade teacher would have us put our heads on our desks, close our eyes and imagine ourselves in a different world. I have read this book so many times, I have lost count and now it sits on my shelf waiting for my son to be of an age where I can read it to him. Mary Stewart is one of my favorite authors of all time and this particular story is one of my favorites.

    I've read better children's stories but it's much harder to judge this kind of book once childhood has been left behind :) I remember being completely entranced by the 'famous five' books as a youngster, but would probably struggle to get through them now. I imagine this would be entertaining for 8 - 10 year olds.

    This is a children's book but "not just for children" as noted on the book cover. I decided to read it since I am a fan of Mary Stewart. It was a little slow to get into and somewhat predictable as would be expected for a child's book but I did enjoy it. I'm sure it would be more enjoyable for a child.

    A vacation picnic in the Black Forest of Germany becomes a time travel adventure. A werewolf is one of the main characters, but I decided to read this anyway because it's by Mary Stewart and the book is small. The first few chapters are pretty dry (and the writing doesn't flow) but the last few chapters make the reading time worthwhile.

Their weary parents soon fall victim to the sleepy afternoon, and fail to see the oddly dressed man pass by them and enter into the dark woods. Bored and restless, the children decide to follow him, unaware that they are embarking on the adventure of a lifetime.

Before they know it, they find themselves stuck far in the past and caught in the middle of a sinister enchantment that they must help break in order to return home. Written straight after her acclaimed Merlin trilogy for adults, Mary Stewart is clearly steeped in the time period and has a remarkable way of bringing the castle to life. She also does an excellent job in how she deals with sorcery and fantasy. Having just read her magnificent middle grade novel The Little Broomstick, I will say that story lacks the same character development that drew the reader to Mary Smith in that novel. John and Margaret feel more like plot devices to propel the tale than fully developed children with ideas and imaginations. Because of that, this rather short novel drags slightly in the beginning, but by the middle it really picks up. By the end, it was very enjoyable, if not altogether magical.

    Long on atmosphere, with some decent action set-pieces, this is unfortunately short on any worthwhile characterization, and as a kid I remembered it being a bit of a slog. I think it's because our hero and heroine John and Margaret are quite dull and good, and I was not at all in invested in them (compared to the delightfully salty and squabbling Jill and Eustace in THE SILVER CHAIR, another portal fantasy, or the hilarious shenanigans of Steve and Max in MAX AND ME AND THE TIME MACHINE, another Long on atmosphere, with some decent action set-pieces, this is unfortunately short on any worthwhile characterization, and as a kid I remembered it being a bit of a slog.

The opening chapter is a masterpiece of atmosphere and eerie gothic tension, but that's the high point, unfortunately. It's readable enough, but it's somehow not...very... engaging, and I think it's because I don't care about any of the characters, and things never seem to get that hairy. Worth a read if you find it in a used bookstore or in the library, but it's not really something I recommend.

    Charming story for ages 10-15 or so. But i think it would appeal more to British children who are more familiar with the language of medieval times and clothing. It might be a little bit challenging for a modern American preteen. I chose it because Mary Stewart has always been one of my favorite authors, and while there is no love interest in this story, it does have her beautiful, romantic language.

    Since I had just finished an excellent YA fantasy novel by a well-known author, I picked up a second one while I was on vacation and tore through it in one sitting. Two children travel to a mysterious other land to try and help a werewolf break his enchantment. Mary Stewart is such an excellent writer and while this reminded me in places of C.S. Lewis's Narnia, it had Stewart's specific storytelling flair.

    This is the first novel I ever read. In 2006, our English teacher suggested that we should learn English by reading, uh, pocketbooks. Good thing a classmate lend me this. I tried to find the title of this book since I joined Goodreads in college a decade ago. I'll read this again to my (future) kids. I think I finished this in 3-5 days.
