A Lovereading4Kids 'Debut of the Year 2011' selection.
9+. Set high up in the last of the forest worlds, this is a powerful fantasy adventure fuelled by an eerie magic written by a dramatic storyteller. Ark knows too much for him to stay alive. Someone is out to kill him and to survive he must keep one step ahead of the game. That way, he can also save the ancient world of Ravenwood. Magic, mystery and adventure are tightly fused in this thrilling and original drama. It's lyrical and thought-provoking, whilst being hugely enjoyable.
From May 2011, the six foot eight inch tall author will be bringing Ravenwood alive in person on a UK and World tour - he's a performance artist too - check out his official Ravenwood website by clicking here.
A Piece of Passion from the author's Publisher:
I've always loved trees. Somehow, as I look up through the branches getting glimpses of sky, I feel a whole new world of possibilities. So you can see why I adored Andrew Peters' fantastic living, breathing, sky-high adventure. His island of giant trees, with its richly funny and almost theatrical inhabitants, beautifully frames a story that takes root in an overheard mystery and is crowned by a most thrilling and bloody battle. In a future where wood has become more precious than gold, our heroes must fight against the destruction of man's last natural refuge in a cold new world of steel and glass. But this is a story of friendship and survival and, with Andrew's glorious use of language and humour, it's a celebration of life and hope too!
Ravenwood by Andrew Peters
Ark lives in a breathtaking world, a sky-high kingdom carved out of the giant branches of a vast canopy of trees; its cities held together with rope, scaffolding and millions of nails, hidden by leaves the size of a fully grown human.
But Ark is plunged into terrible danger after he overhears plans of an evil plot by a sinister super-power. Now he must race from the highest tree-tops to the darkest, deepest roots of Ravenwood to save his home and people.
Want to know even more about the awe-inspiring tree-top world of Ravenwood or about Andrew Peters and his exciting Ravenwood show and you'd like him to come and perform at your school then visit the Ravenwood website for more information - www.ravenwoodbook.com.
