Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell: Stormchaser

Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Corgi Childrens (1 Nov 2000)
ISBN-10: 0552546283
Category(ies): Fantasy/YA

This is the second of the Edge Chronicles, written by Stewart, illustrated by Riddell. It's a fitting follow-up to the first. Twig is a little older, and he is now sailing with his Sky Pirate Captain father. And after a whirligig ride of a plot, Twig turns the tables on a truly nasty villain, and becomes captain of his own ship.

This Twig is a more confident one, grown up from the previous book, more capable of taking care of himself.

A word of warning - the end of this one leads very obviously into the start of the third.

If you liked the first, then this is more of the same.
