Publisher's summary

Once, in a cottage above the cliffs on the Dark Sea of Darkness, there lived three children and their trusty dog, Nugget.

Janner Igiby, his brother, Tink, and their disabled sister, Leeli, are gifted children as all children are, loved well by a noble mother and ex-pirate grandfather. But they will need all their gifts and all that they love to survive the evil pursuit of the venomous Fangs of Dang, who have crossed the dark sea to rule the land with malice. The Igibys hold the secret to the lost legend and jewels of good King Wingfeather of the Shining Isle of Anniera.

Full of characters rich in heart, smarts, and courage, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness is a tale children of all ages will cherish and families can listen to together.

This audiobook includes a PDF of maps, illustrations, and more.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic reviews

“I love all the adventure and the wild inventiveness and, most of all, the heart in Andrew’s books. He is a poet and a master storyteller. I want to read anything he writes.” (Sally Lloyd-Jones, New York Times best-selling author of children’s books)

“A wildly imaginative, wonderfully irreverent epic that shines with wit and wisdom - and features excellent instructions on how to cope with thwaps, Fangs, and the occasional toothy cow.” (Allan Heinberg, writer and coexecutive producer of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and cocreator of Marvel Comics’ Young Avengers)

“An experience your family will never forget. I can’t recommend these books highly enough!” (Sarah Mackenzie, author of The Read-Aloud Family and founder and host of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast)
