On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness CSFF

CSSF Blog Tour

Our March tour of Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Blog Tour for Andrew Peterson’s On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, first in the Wingfeather Saga, will start today and run through Wednesday, March 24-26. This title make seem to familiar to you, because on Wednesday, March 19th I ran a little blurb with the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance Tour on this book as well!

Andrew Peterson is a man of many talents. I heard from a friend over at Christian Fiction
that the reason I have heard of Andrew's name before was Veggie Tales. Well, I love Veggie Tales!!! So... knowing the silliness there... and then reading the title "On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness" you realize there is going to be something different, a little scary, and slightly or mostly silly about this book.

I'm about a third of the way through this book and I haven't quite formed an opinion yet. It is silly at parts, but I can see underlying meanings that are fabulously woven into the plot and characters. Absolutely I can say that this would be a great read for families during an out loud story-time. As soon as I'm through I'll post a review!

Veggie Tales? Really? Would you mind elaborating as my curiosity is pricked? Coolness!

The Wonderful Wizard of Ha's Silly Song entitled "Monkey"

I thought it was interesting timing that we'd be doing the tour back to back with CFBA. Hope that garners the attention the book deserves.

I love learning new things from tourers. I didn't know Andrew had written a song for Veggie Tales either.

That does tip off a reader to his sense of humor.

Thanks for the link, MJ. (And thank for swinging by my site!).

Veggie Tales and Silly Songs? That explains a lot about Peterson's humor in On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. It gets a bit silly, but that just makes it more enjoyable.
