On the edge of the dark sea of darkness / Andrew Peterson.


"ADVENTURE. PERIL. LOST JEWELS. AND THE FEARSOME TOOTHY COWS OF SKREE. Andrew Peterson spins a riveting tale-for-all-ages, following Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby, and their trusty dog, Nugget, as they escape from the vicious Fangs of Dang who seek the lost Jewels of Anniera. Quirky characters and their world of wonders -- from the edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness to the deadly Glipwood Forest and beyond -- set the stage for this epic adventure that includes... Original songs and silly poems, an ex-pirate grandfather, toothy cows and real sea dragons, tours of Anklejelly Manor and Peet the Sock Man's tree house, suspenseful legend and fascinating lore, genuine recipes for Maggotloaf, and authentic hand-drawn maps." -- Provided by book's back.
