These days, you can’t trust bookstores. They carry some uncomfortable reads — looking at you, Fifty Shades. You have to scour the shelves carefully for a really good book. The covers may hint at the contents, but who knows if an unfamiliar story is to be trusted?
If you find yourself lost in a bookstore, keep an eye out for this waypoint: a series of four books called The Wingfeather Saga. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old; these books can entertain and inspire anyone.
The Wingfeather Saga follows the journey of the three Igiby children — Janner, Tink, and Leeli — though their fantastical and dangerous world. The story is part modern fantasy, part fairytale, part fable, and all adventure! It’s about family, growing up, responsibility, sacrifice, bravery, and love.
Andrew Peterson’s whimsical writing sucks you in, but don’t worry. This story is worth opening your heart to… even if it may be broken.
Did you like it? Then you should know that a Kickstarter is underway to fund an animated TV series based on the Saga. Those who help fund the project have access to all kinds of goodies, including brand new short stories! Talk about epic.
If you want to get in on the Kickstarter, check out the page here. Don’t wait; the Kickstarter ends in less than a week!
If you’re going to pass up on the Kickstarter, at least don’t pass up the books. Venture out to your local bookstore and pick up a copy. The story is magical. Yes, it may make you cry, but you will also laugh.
If there is a child inside you, one who longs to be a noble hero, who may be afraid of the dark, who is always ready to giggle over any foolish thing… The Wingfeather Saga is for you.
