First UK edition, first print hardback of STORMCHASER - Book 2 of The Edge Chronicles, by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell and published by Doubleday / Transworld Publishers, London, 1999. With full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page.

The book is in near fine condition (Clean blue cloth boards with silver lettering on the spine) with only minor shelf wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is not price clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. There is slight tanning to the pages.

Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell are the creators of the hugely successful Edge Chronicles, which have sold over two million copies and have been translated into over thirty languages worldwide. Their other collaborations include the Barnaby Grimes series and the Far Flung Adventures, the first of which, Fergus Crane, won the 2004 Gold Smarties Prize.

Paul Stewart is the author of a number of previous titles for children including The Midnight Hand and The Wakening (a Federation of Children's Book Groups Pick of the Year) for the Yearling list.

Chris Riddell is an accomplished graphic artist who has illustrated many acclaimed books for children. Winner of many prestigious awards including the UNESCO Prize (for Something Else), the Kate Greenaway Medal (in 2001 and 2004 for Pirate Diary and Jonathan Swift's 'Gulliver')and the Gold Nestlé Prize forOttoline and the Yellow Cat, he is also the political cartoonist for the Observer.

The Edge Chronicles is a children's fantasy novel series by the authors. It consists of three trilogies, plus three additional books, and others (more than 13 books). Originally published in the United Kingdom, this series has since been published in the United States, Canada and Australia. To date, more than three million copies of the novels have been sold. Stormchaser is the second volume of The Edge Chronicles and of the Twig Saga trilogy; within the stories' own chronology it is the fifth novel, following the Quint Saga trilogy that was published later.

"‘It’s the Great Storm,’ the captain roared... ‘We’re going stormchasing!’

Since his childhood in the Deepwoods, young Twig has always longed to soar above the forest canopy and explore the sky. Now a lowly crew-member on his father's sky pirate ship, the Stormchaser, his dream seems fulfilled. But a much higher destiny awaits Twig, as plots and treacheries from many years ago bring the lofty city of Sanctaphrax - home of the Edgeworld's most learned academics - to the point of disaster.

For the city is built on a giant rock, floating high in the sky, its future balance dependent on stormphrax - a valuable yet extremely volatile substance obtained only from the heart of a Great Storm at the very instant it unleashes its most intense power. And only a ship such as the Stormchaser could risk entering the Storm...

A thrilling fantasy adventure, filled with memorable characters - from gnokgoblins and banderbears, to the avaricious Mother Horsefeather, the lost knights of the Twilight Woods and the loathsome Screed Toe-taker skulking in the Mire - Stormchaser is the second title in a spectacular series, The Edge Chronicles."

'Chris Riddell’s superb illustrations are part and parcel of Paul Stewart’s excellent fantasy series, The Edge Chronicles. The second, Stormchaser, is as action-packed as its predecessor - Guardian

'For children who’ve read the Harry Potter books and want another world to explore…. Just fantasy and adventure, and wonderful line drawings' - Mail on Sunday

'In the Tolkien/Pratchett tradition, fabulously illustrated and written with more than usual elegance.' –The Sunday Times

'Packed with action and adventure. There is a touch of the Lewis Carrolls to its authors' enthusiastic and uninhibited inventiveness and to the illustrations' - Starburst

392 pages. Illustrated with superb line drawings.

ISBN: 0 385 60004 6
