On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness

Janner, Igiby, Tank, and their disabled sister Leeli are gifted children living in a cottage above the Dark Sea of Darkness. But even with their gifts and the help of their mother and former pirate grandfather, they still struggle to survive as the evil Fangs of Dang pursue them and take over the land by killing anyone who stands in their way. For these children are not only special, but the Fangs believe they hold the secret to finding the legendary jewels of the former king.

This book drew me in with the humor and creativity of names and phrases and situations. Some of it was the silly eye-rolling kind but in a good way - I smiled and laughed through a huge portion of this book. I was also drawn in by the story and the characters, especially creatures like toothy cows.

I can't recommend this book and this series enough. I thought the hilarious and mysterious writing style was very similar to that of Lemony Snicket and Pseudonymous Bosch.
