Whether a first-time visitor or a repeat traveler to the always mysterious and sometimes treacherous Glipwood Forest, this illustrated guide is an invaluable addition to any Wingfeather fan’s knapsack.
A Ranger’s Guide to Glipwood Forest expands the legend and lore of this treacherous land of fatal flora and fanged beasts—and the history of the first adventurers daring enough to brave the forest depths. Through detailed line art, maps, and directions, travelers can safely marvel at the majestic glipwood trees, poke around the (possibly haunted) Anklejelly Cavern, dip their toes into the Mighty River Blapp (if they dare!), and avoid falling off a cliff edge into the Dark Sea of Darkness and being swallowed by a sea dragon.
Both longtime Wingfeather fans and readers new to the series will be enthralled, tickled, delighted, and occasionally disturbed by never-before-known nuggets, familiar factoids, and all-new stories about the forest and the brave rangers who made passage into its dark depths possible. Don’t attempt an exploration, journey, or meander through Glipwood without it!
Andrew Peterson’s prequel A Ranger’s Guide to Glipwood Forest offers readers further insights into the world and history of Aerwiar. Set many years before The Wingfeather Saga series, Ranger’s Guide presents and celebrates the original Glipwood Official Rangers Guild as they traverse the many dangers of Glipwood Forest. Fans of Peterson’s typically humorous style will delight in the narration, footnotes, and nonsense words abounding in this slim volume. With characters worthy of their own novels and lore to satisfy the most adventurous traveler, A Ranger’s Guide to Glipwood Forest can happily join the shelves next its predecessor, Pembrick’s Creaturepedia, as well as The Wingfeather Saga.
Best for: Fans of The Wingfeather Saga, middle grade and pre-teen readers.
