Description

Young Twig lives in the Deepwoods, among the Woodtrolls, but he isn't one of them. In a brave attempt to find out where he belongs, Twig wanders into the mysterious, dangerous world beyond the Deepwoods. He meets a collection of odd companions, such as his wise guardian, the Caterbird; the Slaughterers, a peaceful race who butcher animals for their livelihood; and the vicious, bile-swilling Rotsucker. Always watching out for the horrible Gloamglozer, whose presence haunts the thoughts of all the inhabitants of The Edge, Twig steadfastly pursues his quest until he discovers his roots, not among the trees, but in the skies. . . . From the Hardcover edition.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR THE EDGE CHRONICLES: "Sure to please the Potter fans."
-Detroit Free Press "The narrative will cast a spell over readers from the beginning with its utterly odd, off-kilter sense of logic and a vocabulary that is equal parts Dr. Seuss and Lewis Carroll."
-Publishers Weekly "Good fun." -Kirkus Reviews "Stunningly original."--The Guardian (UK) "A richly inventive fantasy . . . one of the most exciting collaborations between a writer and illustrator for a long time."--The Literary Review (UK) From the Hardcover edition.
