Andrew Peterson, better known for Dancing in the Minefields, penned On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, the first of the Wingfeather saga. This singer/songwriter has done an excellent job writing his debut novel. I read it aloud to my husband as we travelled over Thanksgiving and almost enjoyed it more, despite it being the second reading. The poetry of the novel becomes clear as you read it aloud. It is clever and silly, a book meant for all ages. Although the foreshadowing takes away any surprise to an adult reader, it remains enchanting and fun for any reader.

(Despite already reaching this month’s book budget, I found myself purchasing the next in this series anyway…I guess that means no lunch tomorrow.)
