The Edge Chronicles

May 26th, 2011

The Edge Chronicles is written by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddel.

Twelve year old Twig is astonished when his wood-troll mother tells him he is not a wood-troll. She sends him to her cousin with a warning, “don’t stray from the path.” But Twig strays from the path and finds himself on an adventure meeting Slaughterers, a Banderbear, Honey Goblins, and other creatures from the Deepwoods.

Paul Stewart and Chris Riddel pull you into a different world with many characters to meet on almost every page. These two creators make a perfect combination for a good book.
