Publisher's Summary

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.

FABULOUS!!!

I don't care what anybody else says about this book! I LOVED IT! It was a fabulous story of a boy named Twig in big world trying to make friends and fit in. I don't think they have the three other books in the series on www.audible.com, but I would definately pick them up at your local library. They were all so great. I'm a very picky thirteen-year-old when it comes to books, but these honestly blew me away. GET THESE BOOKS....NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UNabridged is BEST! We love the story & narrator

These are awesome stories. The reader is great. The story (when read or listed to) takes a while to get into but it is both complex and fascinating. Enjoyed by my 4 kids (age 7-14) & me. The UNabridged stories in this series are best! We don't understand why they also have abridged versions, in those the stories flow but so many wonderful details are left out. It is worth buying or checking-out the paper copies also because the illustrations are out of this world. GREAT!
