About the Author

Paul Stewart is the cocreator of the bestselling Edge Chronicles series, with Chris Riddell. He is also the author of a number of previous titles for children including The Wakening. Chris Riddell is the cocreator of the bestselling Edge Chronicles series, with Paul Stewart. He has illustrated many children's books, including the award-winning Pirate Diary. He is also the political cartoonist for the Guardian and Observer newspapers.


Gr 4-7-The Edge is filled with icky monsters, profoundly rotten villains, and shiny striving heroes, all with silly names such as muglumps, Orbix Xaxis, and Rook Barkwater. There are dangers behind every tree, mysterious fogs, stones that fly, and trolls and talking bears. In this fifth volume of the "Chronicles," Rook is a young under-librarian who is sent into the creepy Deepwoods to gather knowledge that might help the noble community of Knight-Librarians battle the evil Guardians of Night for control of the Edge. Sometimes Rook and his allies defeat the gluttonous logworms that devour everything in their path; at other times, the Guardians of the Night throw them into chains. Even Twig, hero of Beyond the Deepwoods, the first volume in the series, reappears to join the fray. Who will win? Does it really matter? These adventures pull readers along, and the pages flip by in no time. Riddell's antique-style illustrations add to the fun, depicting the characters' intricate costumes and crazy modes of transport. There's not a lot of substance here, but fans of Lemony Snicket, the "The Spiderwick Chronicles," and "Harry Potter" will devour it.-Walter Minkel, New York Public Library Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
