Sarah | 4 comments I read this in the 80's sometime. All I remember are the strange creatures, a phantasmagoria type of wild woods and a large house or hotel the animals/creatures are in. I believe they change into creatures from human or animal but I'm not sure about that detail. The paperback was 2 1/2" inches or so thick. Thanks!

Michele | 2231 comments Mythago Wood by itself wouldn't be 2-1/2" thick...but it might have been an omnibus edition that included one or more of the sequels (Lavondyss, The Bone Forest, The Hollowing).

Sarah, do you remember if it was a YA book or adult? Do you remember if there were any humans in the story?

Sarah | 4 comments It was an adult book. I'm going to read Mythago Wood. That sounds really close to what I'm looking for.

Sarah, are you still looking for this or was it "Mythago Wood?"
