Product Information

"So good-smart, funny, as full of ideas as action."-Jonathan Rogers, author of The Wilderking Trilogy "A wildly imaginative, wonderfully irreverent epic that shines with wit and wisdom-and features excellent instructions on how to cope with Thwaps, Fangs, and the occasional Toothy Cow."-Allan Heinberg, writer/co-executive producer of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy, " and co-creator of Marvel Comics "Young Avengers" "Fun to read! Every page has word-play, a pun, or clever dialogue that makes me giggle, and the story is full of insight into life. The characters have great names and come to life and stimulate the imagination. Andrew is such a gifted storyteller; this book will be a treasure to both children and adults."-James Bryan Smith, author of "Room of Marvels"; "Rich Mullins: An Arrow Pointing to Heaven," and "Embracing the Love of God"; co-author of "Devotional Classics" with Richard J. Foster "What a great story! I laughed, gasped, and learned more about Skreean culture than I ever thought possible. "On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness" is equal parts adventure and whimsy-a real page turner that both accelerates the heart and warms it. I loved it." -Carolyn Arends, singer/songwriter and author of "Wrestling with Angels" "Sometimes, in order to find out who we were supposed to be, we need to get lost in other worlds: Oz, Camelot, Narnia. In "On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness," Andrew Peterson provides new and needed places like Aerwiar, Skree, and Glipwood-places where we need to get lost and found."-Michael Card, author of "The Hidden Face of God "and "The Parable of Joy, " and singer/songwriter of more than thirty albums "Totally fun! Andrew Peterson, a natural storyteller in the oral tradition, has nailed the voice needed to translate a rip-roaring fantasy tale to the written page."-Donita K. Paul, author of "DragonSpell, DragonKnight, DragonQuest, "and" DragonFire "
