bookshelves: fantasy, young-adult

stewart (author) & riddell (illustrator) show abundant imagination in the fantastical, buoyant and dangerous world of The Edge which they've created for this series. this is the first book of the first of three trilogies (and a couple of standlaone volumes) which make up the edge chronicles. It was recommended to me that the middle trilogy is very worthwhile—but i'm not one to start something in the middle. the book began and ended quite strongly, but all the middle chapters became too much like random, unrelated mini-adventures where the protaginist happened upon a new dangerous creature of the deepwoods. it would've been improved with a stronger narrative flow. i did however particularly enjoy paul riddell's line drawings.
