Beyond the Deepwoods (The Edge Chronicles Series #1) (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) by Paul Stewart, Chris Riddell

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. . . .

the edge chronicals are the gateway to the wondurful world of fantasy with twig as the leader and how it goes back in time in the 4th book. It kinda confused me just tad bit at first but the author made it clear to me. Also the author is the best author in my opinion since Darren Shan and his book series Cirqe Du Freak. THE EDGE CHRONICALS ROCKS OUT LOUD!

Beyond the Deepwoods was fabulous!!! The illustrations are brilliant and the storytelling is very creative. Paul Stewart was wonderful at creating anything from friendly woodtrolls to malevolent hammerhead goblins!!! Chris Riddel pulled me into Twig's adventures in the beautiful yet dangerous Deepwoods with his marvelous drawings!!! I very highly recommend this series!!!!

This book is one of the best I have ever read Twig is such a real character that i can actually see running into him on the street the fantasy caharacters all represent some part of humanity such as the slaughters the are misconceived as being killers but they are really very kind to any passerby such as Twig i would highly suggest that anyone who reads fantasy should read this book 2 thumbs up

This book is outstanding with it's fantasy characters that leave you in a state of awe. It has details so delicate that your mind can almost picture it. But don't worry for the pictures of awesome sketching are dislayed at every scene. The first day I started this book I got half through it and that night I decided to finish it the next day!

Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell started an exellent trillogy with Beyond the Deep Woods. The story is about a boy named Twig who is raised by woodtroll's and grows up getting mocked and beaten because he was different. He also strayed from the path when he was very young, during a game of trokblatter. Twig gets sent to his cousin Snetterbark's house because he had been noticed by a sky pirate capitan. Not a book i would recommend for chidren six and under but altogether an excellent book and the start of an excellent trillogy

Wow, one word to describe the first book in this great series. My Friend has 1-3 and I read all of them one right after the other in two weeks in my spare time. I was sucked in. I just ordered 4,5, and 6. I can't wait until I get them.

Even though it is juvenile fiction I picked this book up and I was riveted. I immediatly had to buy the next two and waited impatiently for the 4th to come out. Now with the fifth out and the sixth scheduled for release in October I am still hooked and avidly reading. The reader falls in love with the characters and wants to know more. This is an excellent book for a younger child and even adults.

I walked in to barnes and nobles for my summer reading book, and 'beyond the deepwoods' caught my eye. I picked it up for some fun reading and couldn't stop. This book had me laughing, confused, and also about to cry. I love this book and the others too.

I have read all of the Edge Chronicles books and they are extremely well written. I was first introduced to these books when visiting cousins in England where it was first printed. These books are excellent and I recommend them to anyone who likes the Artemis Fowl and Harry Potter series'.

This book is a book about Twig who in the end will... well be killed or survive the evil Gloamglozer. This book has a twist of magic , fun, and love in it. From the strong and ruthless (sometimes loving) sky pirates to meek and low lying wood trolls who never stray from the path to the caterbirds who think thy are one, to the horrifying gloamglozer who is so terrifying, then to the strong yet loving ,and caring banderbears who only fear wig wigs. This book is the perfect mixture of sadness , happiness, and love that makes it one of my favorite books.

1) No godmodding/power-playing/over-powering. <br> 2) Keep it realistic. The only reason you should have powers or a strange color is if you are part of a prophecy. <br> 3) Keep it PG! <br> 4) Advertise often! <p> ~ Lionstar

It's alright, I guess... The plot and storyline was ok, not bad, but I personally think Twig is a bit weak...
