Then Twig meets an injured Banderbear, one of the forest's dominant predators. The Banderbear is sick because of a rotten tooth, which Twig heals by wrenching it out. Soon, Twig and the Banderbear become great friends, but one day the Banderbear is killed by a swarm of Wig-Wigs, ferocious predators which act like piranhas. Later, Twig almost drowns in a swamp, but is rescued by a goblin at the edge, who mysteriously vanishes just as Twig is about to thank him.
Twig then follows a young girl, and he discovers she is a Termagent Trog who has not yet matured. Twig spends a few months with the Trog girl, who grows to become fond of him as a "pet" and eventually the girl's maturing ceremony takes place.
Beyond the Deepwoods
Twig watches as the girl he has come to love grows enormously gigantic by drinking Bloodoak sap. Now fully formed as a Trog female, the girl attempts to kill Twig, as she sees all other species as vermin. However, a lone Trog male saves Twig, much to his surprise, and directs him to the exit.
Soon, Twig meets some sky pirates , whose ship has crashed due to the flight-rock which powers the ship falling out of the sky when it was struck by lightning. Twig finds out that the sky pirate captain, Quintinius Verginix, is his true father, and learns at long last who he, Twig, really is. To Twig's horror, though, the next morning he awakes in a deserted forest clearing. The sky pirates have jumped ship and abandoned him Momentarily distraught, Twig sees the pirate's fire float upwards and catch onto a tree, which sets half the forest alight.
Twig runs for it, right down to the Edgelands, where he meets the Gloamglozer face to face. In a cruel twist, the Gloamglozer reveals that the entire set of misadventures was a cruel game devised by himself.
He tells Twig that he, the Gloamglozer, was all the various creatures which had saved him throughout the journey. The Slaughterer who had mocked Twig was the Gloamglozer in disguise, as was the Trog male and the goblin. I did love the fact that there was so many different creatures and adventures going on.
Not one problem lasted so long. I do agree with the person that said they were surprised that the story got wrapped up so neatly with so much random st I was really surprised about this book. I do agree with the person that said they were surprised that the story got wrapped up so neatly with so much random stuff going on. This is definately not a book for those that want cutesy creatures. But if your looking for something that is a little odd, and a little different this is the book.
The personal journey in this book at first started off like everyone else, the boy who doesn't belong is looking to belong. But so much more happened in this. Definately a good read. View 1 comment. This is one of those series, like the famous Harry Potter, and like the Chrestomanci series of Diana Wynne Jones, that I used to fervently and desperately wish were real.
Or rather, that felt so real incredibly real that I simply couldn't believe they weren't. Yes, my 11th birthday was somewhat spoiled with the absence of a letter from Hogwart's, but it's no time to dwell on that.

I remember first reading this aged 11, at a very unhappy time in my childhood, and it was the very best escape into fantasy I could have hoped for. The world that Paul Stewart paints for us is simply magical, without leaning on all of the cliches of typical fantasy elements. It is entirely original, and wonderful.
For me, this series is deeply, deeply underrated. I never hear it mentioned, and nobody I know seems to remember it from their own childhood. This list didn't mention it when I was surfing earlier. I am really shocked that it continues to lie so far under the radar. I have read the earlier books in the series dozens of times over the years, and have recently discovered a couple of newer ones that I haven't read, so I will be re-reading the entire series again.
Every time I re-read them, the books never lose their magical quality, never become old. Definite 5-star. Forever thinking he was a Wood Troll, when he finds out he is not, he starts a journey to find out who he is.

Along the way he buddies up with the Banderbear and the Caterbird, who help him when most needed.
Finally he encounters the Sky Pirates and finds his home. The book graphics are outstanding. Worth the read for that alone.
This is a YA series. Good for cleaning your palette and tickling your funny bone. Feb 16, Ryan rated it liked it. The Good: Very imaginative and moody. The setting is dark and colourful and a little bit twisted, with frequent gross-out moments to appeal to the target audience.
There is an extremely diverse cast of characters. The Bad: Many of the scenes appeared to randomly follow the last one, a theme repeated in the setting — a lot of bizarre stuff occurs for no given reason. Twig is a young boy who is looking for somewhere to fit in. So, Ross or Phoebe. View all 7 comments. Jun 17, Saeed Mohamadi rated it really liked it Recommended to Saeed by: It was a good end to the story, finishing first book with an appropriate plot for the main character to be introduced and leaving the reader in a position that they know it's the beginning of a great journey for him.
Definitely going to read the next book in this trilogy. The best thing I enjoyed in this book was the vast numbers of metaphors that 3 stars for the story and so many characters that beautifully described in so much details, wonderful graphics in the book and 1 star for the ending.

The best thing I enjoyed in this book was the vast numbers of metaphors that fit everyday life of ours. This book was thoroughly unexpected! I was thinking I'd picked up a light-hearted children's fantasy that I'd whiz through without too much emotional attachment. So imagine my surprise when the characters and creatures were so gruesome, inventive and frankly sometimes scary! I had a lot of love for Twig - he was a lovable character, a relatable little guy who doesn't fit in with his Woodtroll family and so sets off to find himself and his destiny in the Deepwoods.
What he finds is a magical array This book was thoroughly unexpected! What he finds is a magical array of fantastical and imaginative animals and beings, the majority of which want to eat or kill him! I loved this book, really enjoyed the fast paced story, it completely transported me to the world of the Deepwoods and I am excited to see what the other books have in store! Dec 28, Arielle Walker rated it it was amazing Shelves: Every time I read this book I remember again how much I absolutely adore everything about it.
Jul 01, Ahmad Sharabiani marked it as to-read. Feb 06, Daley rated it liked it. Beyond the Deepwoods Edge Chronicles, Book 1 After beginning this book, I figured out that it is actually written for children. At the time, I had no book to read.
This book has been on my shelf for a few years. It was given to my partner as a gift and he was never interested in it. So, out of necessity to have something to read, I grabbed it. I was shocked at how much I liked it. It wasn't incredible, but it was very well written and the story was well thought out.
It had a few twists and turns Beyond the Deepwoods Edge Chronicles, Book 1 After beginning this book, I figured out that it is actually written for children. It had a few twists and turns that I did not expect There is constant action and the lead character goes from one problem to the next.
A few of the main points of the story did surprise me and a few shocked me deeply.
Even though this is written for children, it is a bit dark and some overbearing parents might not like their kids being exposed to situations like death even if they are artfully presented. I don't see the point in pretending children aren't humans like the rest of us, but I digress. There are many scenes that remind me of some of the movies from the s with dark, odd puppetry characters. The book even has a few illustrations that put you in that frame of mind.
However, I wouldn't call anything in this book scary. However, anticipation is constant. The main character is the usual weak male that finds his strength along the way, but the story is generally unique and pleasing.

He always manages to find a way out of his situation. The main moral that this story centers around is the acceptance and promotion of individuality. The main character strays from the path and chooses adventure over assimilation.
I can respect that. I remember when I first found this book, nestled away in my local library. I was around , and my dad pulled it out and said, "Ethan, this one sounds a lot like Harry Potter , why don't you give it a try? You love your fantasy and magical creatures".
Almost reluctantly, I got it out because, really, I didn't want to be reading young adult books when the crime and gore section was right there , but I decided to settle down and give my dad's pick a chance. I was taken on a whole ne I remember when I first found this book, nestled away in my local library. I was taken on a whole new fantasy journey.
I thought HP took me to a whole new world, when Paul Stewart and Chris Riddle had this beautiful book and series just sitting in my library, waiting to be discovered. I don't remember that last time I actively sat and read a book as quickly as this. We follow Twig, a young humanoid character on his journey across The Edge, a fantasy world full to the brim with creatures and animals that both terrify and amaze us.
And amaze me this book did. I still remember my heart thinking at certain scenes, how I would sit and stare at the illustrations for hours, how I just could not get enough of it.
I read it within two hours and was already back at the library, getting every other book in the series out. If you're looking for a young adult fantasy series, I highly recommend this one. It's absolutely brilliant. Stewart and Riddle can do no wrong whatsoever.
Mythical critters info dumping things about their world that they already know. I loved every aspect of this book, it was just as enchanting as the first time I read it, and can at least say that it's as good as all the previous books I've read.
Das Cover hat mich an die Scheibenweltromane erinnert, dabei hat man es hier mit einem reinen Kinderbuch zu tun. Sehr gut getroffen machen sie die Geschichte nochmal einen Tick anschaulicher. Das war am Anfang erfrischend, im Laufe der Seiten aber eher langweilig. Es hatte keinen roten Faden bzw. Vor allem die Zeichnungen sind ein Hingucker! Feb 26, Karlis rated it really liked it.
Dec 01, Alexis rated it it was ok. This book was actually pretty good; I'm just angry about the ferocious beast on the front of the book. The beast on the front is called a banderbear, it's a timid creature and nothing messes with it except these little, evil, ferocious, fur balls called wig-wigs. The main character had met the banderbear while looking for food. It was sitting on the ground holding its had up to its face while whimpering. It turns out the banderbear had a rotten tooth in his mouth, so the main character pulled it This book was actually pretty good; I'm just angry about the ferocious beast on the front of the book.
It turns out the banderbear had a rotten tooth in his mouth, so the main character pulled it out.
After the tooth was pulled out the banderbear went into a rage and during it he ripped many of the vegetation around him. He then went over to the main character and wrapped his arms around him in a bear hug ha. It then asked where its tooth was and the main character had put it on a string and had it around his neck. They became friends after that and the banderbear protected the main character from anything and everything. It also helped him get food and find places to sleep.
One day or should I say night they were looking for a place to sleep when the main character spotted a orange ball of fur then the banderbear turned around, saw the ball of fur, then yelled wig-wigs. The banderbear then started to run with the main character on its back.
The ball of fur then turned into multiple balls of and started to chase after the banderbear. They started to catch up after a few minutes, one of the wig-wigs jumped at the banderbear, spit in half to show its ferocious teeth, and bit the banderbear's leg. After a few more times of being bit the banderbear had had enough and stopped to put the main character in a tree. It then was bombarded with wig-wigs.
The main character had look away do to the sight of seeing his friend torn to pieces, but he couldn't stop himself from hearing the pain ridden shrieks of his friend. When it was over the main character looked down to find nothing remaining of his old friend, the only thing he had was the tooth around his neck.
Well wasn't that a terrible end to a friendship I sure think so. Man, I actually liked that bear, he was adorable. Well this book was completely full-on throughout! So fast-paced, never a dull moment. So much happened. And the same moments stand out to me every time. It's been years since I read it the first few times, and I'm extremely lucky to have met one of the authors and the illustrator, Chris Riddell: D He's so charismatic and I can totally see him imagining and creating this world with Paul Stewart.
The little illustrations definitely helped with the speed I read it XD But they're essential t Well this book was completely full-on throughout! The little illustrations definitely helped with the speed I read it XD But they're essential to the story! Honestly, without them I have no idea how these fantastical creatures would be imagined in my head. Everyone would have completely different pictures, and also the length it would take to describe them would make the book twice as long.
So I'm very grateful for these incredible illustrations. So lucky to have seen him sketch in person. Can't wait to see what new treasures Stormchaser has for me: Apr 14, Tilly rated it really liked it. Middle-grade fantasy books are probably the best way to get out of a reading slump, especially when they are as magical, whimsical and creative like this one.
First of all I absolutely loved Chris Riddles illustrations through the whole novel, they were a great way to bring Paul Stewart good description of the creatures to life. I also think that the world-building is great and very detailed, especially for a childrens book.
All the different places on the Edge which were described in the beginn Middle-grade fantasy books are probably the best way to get out of a reading slump, especially when they are as magical, whimsical and creative like this one. All the different places on the Edge which were described in the beginning seem to be very interesting, even though we only saw the Deepwoods in this first book. I really liked him as character, especially his self-doubt and the uncertainty of him to which place he belong made him a very likable and realistic character.
Some parts within his journey through the Deepwoods were very thrilling, some even a bit dark and mysterious and others were absolutely emotional and heart-warming. All the different races and creatures were probably my favorite thing in the book and I am very excited what species we will see in the other novels because until now we only saw a very small part of this world.
The only reason why I did not give this book 5 stars is because there is still a bit room for both plot and character development in my opinion, so it gets a very good 4. I will definitely continue! Jan 11, Paul Ringkamp rated it it was amazing.
A great re read for me, i read the entire series years ago and as this book was chosen for our January readalong in the book club it was the perfect opportunity to read them again. As i have read the pre- and sequels, even if half a decade ago, the memories slowly returned as i read.
Not enough at ones to lessen the fun but so that i would wait with a grin for Twig to stumble into the next problem. A great book, a great series. Highly recommended. May 10, Badiss rated it did not like it. This book is about a 13 year old Twig who discovers that he was abandoned at birth by a unknown person.
Twig goes on a long journey through Deepwoods to try to get back his family. He makes his way through goblins and trogs and beasts who drink blood for fun. I didnt really like this book, because of it's plot.

The only reason why i never put it down was because i was waiting for something good to happen, by the time i realized nothing good was going to happen it was too late for me to put ti down. I was so deep into the book. I wouldn't recommend this book to people who are like me, and dont like reading fairy tail books. If i were to rate this book out of ten, i would give it a two. Full of suspense and imaginative Twig has such incredible mis adventures in Deepwoods and it's a great contrast to the city adventures plot of Quint.
Can't wait to read more. Jan 23, Marie rated it it was amazing. This is one of the books I devoured when I was a child and still remember quite clearly today.
The inspiration might have been Red Riding Hood: Don't leave the path. But well: When does any character in any book follow that advice? The story then winds through the forest and suprises us with the most unexpected beasts, dangerous situations and escapes.This article consists almost entirely of a plot summary. The series is made up of three trilogies, a book that is basically a one book trilogy, and then another trilogy that is still being written.
It reminds me of Bilbo's adventures in the HObbit but not so hard to read. Enlarge cover.
The novel established the main characters troubles along his journey very clearly. Plot[ edit ] Raised by Woodtroll families all his life, Twig believes at heart he is a woodtroll, yet he strongly suspects there is something different about him, as he does not fit in with the rest of the woodtroll villagers.
