The Edge Chronicles: Beyond the Deepwoods Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Edge Chronicles: Beyond the Deepwoods

Twig always felt out of place with the woodtrolls that raised him. In fact, he felt out of place in the Deepwoods, and often longed to see what lay beyond the thick canopy of trees that formed the forest roof. All the woodtrolls were adamant about staying to the path, but when Twig is sent to visit his cousin, he feels an overwhelming temptation to wander into the mysterious forest. Stepping off the path is the beginning of a string of adventures for Twig, in which he encounters Trogs, Banderbears, Gyle Goblins, and a whole host of other unusual creatures. He also inadvertently ends up discovering the truth behind his enigmatic past, and why he never felt he truly belonged among the people of the Deepwoods. Throughout his adventures, Twig eventually ends up realizing that he really wants to be a sky pirate, but finding a ship to board is a difficulty that Twig must overcome.
