Publisher's Description

Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby thought they were normal children with normal lives and a normal past. But now they know they’re really the Lost Jewels of Anniera, heirs to a legendary kingdom across the sea, and suddenly everyone wants to kill them.
In order to survive, the Igibys must flee to the safety of the Ice Prairies, where the lizardlike Fangs of Dang cannot follow. First, however, they have to escape the monsters of Glipwood Forest,1 the thieving Stranders of the East Bend,2 and the dreaded Fork Factory.3
But even more dangerous are the jealousies and bitterness that threaten to tear them apart, and Janner and his siblings must learn the hard way that the love of a family is more important than anything else.


1. All possessing very sharp teeth.
2. Murderous scoundrels, the lot.
3. Woe!

Endorsements

“Peterson deserves every literary prize for this fine book. It is obvious that his musical talents have been put to good use as his use of words, plot and narrative read like a well scored film script. A very fine book, by a very fine writer and future talent. Amazing - thrilling and well worth reading again and again.” — G. P. Taylor, New York Times best-selling author of Shadowmancer and The Dopple Ganger Chronicles

“Toothy cows are very dangerous. Andrew Peterson convinced me and shivers run down my spine at the very thought of meeting a toothy cow face to face. The author spills characters like Podo and Nurgabog onto the page, then weaves a tale of danger that holds the reader captive. Believe me, you will relish being held captive by this master storyteller. But be sure you don’t get caught by the Stranders. Those people just ain’t civilized.” — Donita K. Paul, author of The Vanishing Sculptor

“In a genre overrun by the gory and the grim, Peterson’s bite-sized chapters taste more like a stew of Gorey (Edward) and Grimm (the Brothers). North! Or Be Eaten is a welcome feast of levity--and clearly a labor of love. Andrew Peterson has awakened my inner eight-year-old, and that is a very good thing.” — Jeffrey Overstreet, author of Auralia’s Colors and Cyndere’s Midnight

“An immensely clever tale from a wonderful storyteller - filled with great values and even greater adventure!” — Phil Vischer, creator of VeggieTales

“Thrills, chills, spine-tingling mystery, and lots of smiles. It’s not easy to combine heart-pounding danger with gut-busting laughs and make it work, but Peterson pulls it off. For readers who want nonstop action infused with powerful, life-changing themes, North! Or Be Eaten is a must-read.” — Wayne Thomas Batson, best-selling author of The Door Within Trilogy, Isle of Swords and Isle of Fire

“Andrew Peterson is a gifted storyteller, scene painter and wordsmith who takes you on a rollicking white-water ride of adventure. Readers of all ages are sure to find North! Or Be Eaten worthy of a big mug filled with a favorite beverage and a cozy nook near a crackling fire for hours on end. Here there be tales within yarns within stories. Listen, reader, bend your ear, but keep an eye peeled lest the dreaded Fangs of Dang be near!” — R. K. Mortenson, author of Landon Snow and The Auctor’s Riddle

    If you like fantasy with wild escapes, plots and adventure, you will like this book. But don't forget to read the first book "On The Edge of The Dark Sea of Darkness first.

    Loved the two book series and couldn't put them down.

    It has been a long time since I've read a book I've enjoyed as much as this one, and as a middle school English teacher, I've read a lot of this sort of fiction! The character development is so thorough- I got emotionally invested in the characters right away. There are strong Christian themes in this book, but it never gets heavy-handed, predictable or two-dimensional. In fact, Mr. Peterson paints a fantasy world that reflects the grim reality of sin that has broken our own world, but he does not leave out the fire-y, desperately beautiful, exhilarating truth of hope and love, too. Although I enjoyed the first book of the series, this one was substantially better, as it could build on what he created in the first. I hope this one becomes the classic it deserves to be, as something kids who love The Chronicles of Narnia can pick up when they are a little older. Bring on number three in the series!

    Full Disclosure Fact # 1 this is the 1st time in a long time that I've read a book in the Fantasy Fiction genre. Fact # 2 this is my 1st encounter with the talent of Andrew Peterson. Andrew is also a singer/songwriter in the Contemporary Christian genre who has ten albums. This is Book Two in Mr. Petersons The Wingfeather Saga. It follows the adventures of the Igiby family; children Leeli, Janner and Tink, mother Nia, grandfather Podo (a pirate in his younger years), and other characters. The story is full of amazing and scary! creatures - the Toothy Cow, the Horned Hound (the horn is on his forehead), the Fangs of Dang, the Snickbuzzard (complete with a belly button!), the Bumpy Digtoad and the Quill Diggle. Many of these creatures are illustrated in the novel by the multi-talented Mr. Peterson! There are many allegorical themes which can correlate to the authors Christian faith. The main characters regularly pray to the Maker. The adventures of the Igiby family are a constant battle between good and evil. The familys ultimate destination is Kimera, which can be likened to Heaven. It is ultimately a story of redemption. Despite the fact that fantasy fiction is not my favorite genre, I found this novel to be entertaining and compelling. Admittedly, it did take me quite a few pages in for it to grab my attention. I think it would have been helpful to have read Book One,On The Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, in order to more easily catch on. Once I did catch on, I can favorably compare it to C.S. Lewiss Chronicles of Narnia series and J.R.R. Tolkiens The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Mr. Peterson has the ability to create a fantasy world with characters that we ultimately root for, no matter our age. In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour,I received a free copy of this book for review purposes from the publisher, WaterBrook Press.

    This story starts out where the first book left off: in Peet the Sock Mans tree house. Janner, Tink, Leeli, Podo, and Nia are about to set off for the Ice Prairies, but they dont get going soon enough and end up on the run from the Fangs of Dang. Its a long, long journey to the Ice Prairies, and the Igby children are waylaid by some pretty horrifying setbacks. Will all in their party survive the trip? Will they get caught before they make it?Oh, I likes me this book a way bunch! It makes me wanna talk like Podo, which I probably dont do as well as the old coot, but still I give it me best shot.I liked this one better than the first, which is such a great thing. The characters were even better this time. I love the parallels with Janner and Peet. Two Throne Wardens struggling to do what they must even when it is nearly impossible. Andrew Petersons style is funny and clever while telling a dangerous tale of woe. Thats what makes his writing so unique. Hes a wonderful writer and storyteller. I highly recommend this series. I cannot wait for book three. And I love the illustrations in the book. The Snickbuzzard with the belly button, especially.

    A great book to follow Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. My boys have read it more than once. I loved this book. This is one of those rear great books you and your kid will both love. This is a great book for older kids and a great read aloud book. Also, its a great book for anyone like me.
