Description

Praise for North! Or Be Eaten "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 Timesbest-selling author ofShadowmancerand 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 ofThe Vanishing Sculptor "In a genre overrun by the gory and the grim, Peterson's bite-sized chapters taste more like a stew ofGorey (Edward)andGrimm (the Brothers).North! Or Be Eatenis a welcome feast of levity--and clearly alabor of love.Andrew Peterson has awakened my inner eight-year-old, and that is a very good thing." Jeffrey Overstreet,author ofAuralia's ColorsandCyndere's Midnight "An immensely clever tale from a wonderful storyteller - filled with great values and even greater adventure!" Phil Vischer, creator ofVeggieTales "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 Eatenis a must-read." Wayne Thomas Batson, best-selling author of The Door Within Trilogy, Isle of SwordsandIsle 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 findNorth! Or Be Eatenworthy 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 ofLandon SnowandThe Auctor's Riddle
