I love books! Reading has been a favorite past time for me, so whenever I find a book (or a book series) that I really enjoy I tell people about it!
I have been blessed with a wonderful dad who takes time out of his evening to sit down with his family and read to them. Night after night, my brothers and I rush to get ready for bed and then curl up on the couch where we wait for Daddy to transport us into another world filled with wonder and excitement; then quickly beg for "just one more chapter Daddy! PLEEEEEEEAAAAAAAZZZZZZZE!". We've read through many great series such as:
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
The Terrestria Chronicles by Ed Dunlop (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!)
The Wilder King Trilogy by Jonathan Rogers (Still in the process of finishing the last one but defiantly an EPIC READ!)
And arguably, our all time favorite: (drum roll please)
The Wingfeather Saga (by the all wise, all knowing Andrew Peterson)
The Wingfeather Saga is about three siblings, Janner (the oldest), Tink (the second born), and Lee Lee Igiby (the youngest and only girl). Together with their courageous mother Nia, heroic grandfather Podo, (who was a former pirate!) book scolar Oskar N. Reteep and Pete the Sock man the children have grand adventures that include, but are not limited to:
escaping The Fangs of Dang,
hearing the song of the dragons,
eating cheesy chowder,
enduring the dreaded Fork Factory (woe!)
and surviving the Green Hollows!
Along the way, they learn lessons of courage, love and ultimely, the willingness to accept and fulfill the Maker's plan for their lives.
Andrew Peterson is an O-MAZING singer/songwriter who has released over 9 albums including his latest Light for the Lost Boy. Andrew's music is really cool! How cool you might ask? Cool enough that Brain Masfield (a critic for USA TODAY) chose his (Andrew's) newest album as one of the top 10 albums for 2012! We even entered a contest and made a music video for Andrew's song Rest Easy. Check it out.
Andrew wrote and released his first book, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness (also the first book in the Wingfeather Saga) in 2008 and then in 2009 the second book in the series North! or be Eaten. Two VERY LONG AGONIZING YEARS later, (and yes, it was THAT dramatic!) his third book came out The Monster in the Hollows. He is now working on publishing the forth and finale book in the series The Warden and the Wolf King. Andrew needs $14,000 in order to publish and if he reaches OVER his goal, he will not only publish it, but publish it in HARDCOVER, PLUS do some other cool things like release an audio book and.... (what I most excited about) a companion book to the series called...
wait for it....
WAIT FOR IT....
a book covering every monster/beast from the series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BUT, that will ONLY happen if he gets $65,000! (or more)
So PLEASE, head over to Andrew's Kickstarter page and help this wonderful man of God produce the story laid on his heart plus all of the other exciting goodies! I PROMISE you, your money will not go to waste and you will not regret it!
