Publisher's Summary

Young Twig lives in the Deepwoods, among the Woodtrolls, but he isn't one of them. In a brave attempt to find out where he belongs, Twig wanders into the mysterious, fascinating, and sometimes hazardous world beyond the Deepwoods. In his travels he encounters myriad peculiar creatures, like his wise guardian, the Caterbird; the Slaughterers, a peaceful race who butcher animals for their livelihood; and the vicious, bile-swilling Rotsucker. Always mindful of the Gloamglozer, whose presence haunts the thoughts of all the inhabitants of The Edge, Twig pursues his quest until he discovers his roots, not among the trees, but in the skies. With his new allies, the Sky Pirates, Twig prepares to embark on his next adventure.

    "All amazing"

    I'm revisiting this book after reading it as a child, it is still really good! The narrator's performance is excellent, and certainly helps create just the experience I was looking for.

    Story
    "A genuinely wonder-ful tale"
    Would you listen to Beyond the Deepwoods again? Why?

    At some point, not doubt!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Deepwoods?

    The heroic gesture of a surprise furry friend (don't want to give the story away here!)


    What does Michael Praed bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Well read - a light touch but compelling all the way.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I read this book years ago when it first came out and loved it - the weirdness and the wonder. There is a hint of Alice in Wonderland about it. Magical.


    Any additional comments?

    A delightful story that concludes by the end of the book... but then continues on with further books and stories of Twig and other heroes of the world. I do recommend reading the books too, if only to see the beautiful illustrations by Chris Riddell.
