SynopsisEdge Chronicles 7: The Last of the Sky Pirates First Book of Rook by Paul Stewart, Chris Riddell
Rook Barkwater dreams of becoming a librarian knight - sent out to explore the mysteries of the Edgeworld. So when his chance comes, he grabs it. Breaking all the rules, he sets out on a journey to the Free Glades and beyond. His luck and determination lead him deep into the heart of the Deepwoods, where Rook encounters a mysterious character - the last sky pirate - and is thrust into a bold adventure that dares to challenge the might of the dread Guardians of the Night.
About The Author
Paul Stewart was born in London in 1955 and went to university in Lancaster. He then spent a year picking oranges in Greece, followed by a creative writing course at the University of East Anglia. Before becoming a full time writer, Paul taught English as a foreign language and lived in Germany and Sri Lanka for a while.
His first book, The Thought Domain, was published in 1988 and he has written at least one a year since then.
Paul met artist Chris Riddell because their children went to the same school, and they have done many joint projects with Paul writing the story and Chris illustrating it.
Amongst Paul’s most popular titles are Dogbird, a funny story about a bird that barks like a dog, and the Football Mad stories. Blobheads and Beyond the Deepwoods are two collaborations with Chris Riddell, and Blobheads is being turned into a cartoon series.
Paul works every single day of the year apart from Christmas day. He lives in Brighton with his wife [who’s a primary school teacher] and their son and daughter.
