This amazing book series by acclaimed song-writer and storyteller Andrew Petersen will set your entire family longing for more! The tale of the courageous Wingfeather children of the Glipwood Township, and the dangers they face when they discover they are the lost heirs of the Shining Isle, is worth reading and re-reading.
The books have timeless lessons of truth that the whole family will enjoy. They focus on three siblings who go through difficult times together and learn how to love one another and stick together, no matter what. These books are clean and appropriate, although there are some sections that might be creepy for young children. They show the power that darkness can have over a person, but they brightly contrast it with the power of truth.
There is also a short 15-minute animated film available on Youtube that shows the first part of book one, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. Stories like these are some of the most powerful ways that children can be influenced to understand the power of love and courage, and the joy that is found in doing what is right, no matter how hard it might be! This a much better option than what PBS kids pumps out...
