Clive Mantle's talent lends the characters of the Deepwoods distinctive vocal interpretations. As the story of Twig (who thinks he's a wood troll) unfolds, the listener is taken on a journey that is familiar, although the twists of fantasy bring new perspective to the tasks of searching for one's identity, overcoming obstacles, and struggling with enemies. Mantle's excellent and droll reading enhances the combination of description, humor, and wonderful characters. Sky Pirates, Rot Suckers, and Gross Mother are only a few of the creatures Twig meets, and young listeners who love descriptions of disgusting events such as compost dunking will thoroughly enjoy Twig's mishaps.

In November 2013, the joint annual conference of the British branch of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY UK) and the MA course at the National Centre for Research in Children’s Literature (NCRCL) at Roehampton University took as its focus ‘Feast or Famine? Food in Children’s Literature’. Food is central to both children’s lives and their literature. The mouth-watering menu of talks given to the conference delegates is richly reflected in this book. Speakers examined the uses of food in children’s books from the nineteenth century to the present day, and in a wide variety of genres, from ancient fable to twenty-first-century fantasy. From the contributions to this collection, it is shown that food within literature not only reflects the society, culture and time in which it is prepared, but also is widely used by authors as a means to instruct their juvenile readers, and to deliver moral messages.

Excerpt: This article lists the vast array of fictional animals found in the Edge Chronicles, a series of young adult books set in a fantasy world created by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. For more information about the fictional world of the Edge, please see the similar article, Plants of the Edge Chronicles. Evolution on the Edge happens at a much faster pace than on Earth. The half-formed mutants of Clash of the Sky Galleons have adapted very quickly to their sky-wreck environment. Of course, they are just overgrown sky-vermin. Sky-vermin are (from the looks of the Clash of the Sky Galleons) very adaptive creatures. The high evolution rate could be explained by the existence of "Glisters," small seed-like objects that blow in from the open sky. When they encounter Riverrise, the source of the Edgewater, they somehow mutate into animals and plants of many forms. Alternatively, these animals may already have existed, but were practically unknown and simply moved into a vacant niche. The Edge Chronicles is a young-adult fantasy novel series by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. It consists of three trilogies, plus three additional books, and others (more than 13 books).

In this second installment to Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell's fabulous Edge Chronicles, life doesn't get any easier for young Twig. He's left the behind the monstrous, tooth-and-claw dangers of Beyond the Deepwoods, only to find himself plunged into the more diabolical, deadly intrigues of Undertown and the floating city Sanctaphrax. Serving aboard the magnificent sky-ship Stormchaser, Twig is still trying to prove himself to his pirate father Cloud Wolf--with mixed results. As old plots and schemes unfold, Twig learns that his father was once known as Qunitinius Verginix, "the finest Knight Academic in a hundred generations," entrusted by the Professors of Light and Darkness to secure "stormphrax" (the sacred, super-heavy substance that keeps the city of Sanctaphrax from sailing skyward). Betrayal forced Twig's father into piracy, but the seeds sown by that misdeed have only now come to fruit, through a convoluted conspiracy of corruption. Now the Stormchaser must sail again--Twig, in tow, of course--chasing the Great Storm in search of stormphrax.
