    One thought on “Wingfeather Tales”

    1. Having loved Andrew Peterson's Wingfeather Saga, I was thrilled to participate in the Kickstarter campaign to bring an animated series based on the books to the screen. Wingfeather Tales was one of the promised rewards for backers. I was intrigued by the concept--a collection of short stories by different authors set in the Wingfeather World. Not a sequel, but a companion to the original works. I was intrigued, but I can't say I was all that enthusiastic, because it just wouldn't be the same, an [...]

    2. Kind of fun at times, but not very driven. I would finish one story and have absolutely noooo motivation to read the next one. I'm just not much of a short story person?? I still LOOOVE the original Wingfeather Saga, this just wasn't my favorite. :D

    3. This book is awesome!!!! I should warn you, it doesn't mention any of the Wingfeathers in it, so you will finish reading it knowing just as much about the outcome of their family as you would after having read his other four books. Also, Andrew Peterson only wrote one of the short stories within. So basically, this collection of tales is like very high end fan fiction. It IS high end though. All the stories are written extremely well. (Some arguably better than Andrew Peterson.) I really enjoyed [...]

    4. First off: You should buy this book. Here. It's on sale right now.When on Saturday, a friend asked me what my plans for this week were, I told him it was to read one more book. I had spontaneously set 50 books as my to-read goal on at the beginning of the year- I had one more book to go. Because I have no life, I had no other plans.Christmas morning (well, all right, it was Christmas Eve due to the shifting of schedules for Church on Sunday, Christmas morning), I was handed a package by my moth [...]

    5. When I was young, my sisters would normally devour all of their Christmas candy within the first few days. Not me. I tucked most of mine away in a drawer and savored it a little at a time over the next weeks and months. Turns out, I do the same thing with books. At any given time, I have 5-10 books laying around the house or office that I already know are going to be 5-star favorites. I had this particular book put aside for a couple months when I finally jumped in.If you have not read the four [...]

    6. Before I start this review, a few things to clear up: Wingfeather Tales is not a sequel. It's a companion anthology of short stories; some take place before the Saga, some after, and some during roughly the same time. It also does not explicitly suggest anything more about what happened with the epilogue of Warden, which is actually good- I have my headcanon and it makes me very happy, and I like not having said headcanon shattered by actual canon. (That said, there is a tiny piece near the end [...]

    7. Well doesn't come even close to comparing to the Wingfeather Saga but it was good. We all enjoyed it, some stories more than others, the very last story, by Douglas McKelvey was beautiful and epic and moving and tied perfectly with the original series. We also really enjoyed the story written by A.S. Peterson, Andrew's brother, and we're probably going to read some of his other books now too. (It should be noted my children thought I should give it 5 stars.)

    8. I began reading this one out loud to my kids, who all loved the Wingfeather Saga. They loved these too, until we got about half way through "The Places Beyond the Map." All of the stories are good, but some are simply great. "From the Deeps of the Dragon King" and the "The Places Beyond the Map" are two of the very best. These stories are complex, emotive, and beautiful.Though Douglas McKelvey lost my kids (10, 8, and 6) half way through his novella, I read on myself and found the story only got [...]

    9. Peterson does it again; this time with comrades! I read most of this aloud with my oldest son and we regularly found ourselves either laughing out loud or on the edge of our seats. Of course, one should not even remotely consider reading this without having first read the four-book Wingfeather Saga.

    10. I am a huge fan of the Wingfeather Saga, so I was very excited when I found out there was going to be a collection of short stories set in Aerwiar. I am going to review the short stories in the order they appear:1. The Prince of Yorsha Doon by Andrew Peterson - This story was actually my least favorite of the 6 short stories, because it didn't feel like it was set it Aerwiar. Though he wrote the Wingfeather Saga, I don't think he captured the magic of Aerwier quite as well as he did in the serie [...]

    11. Read only Wilson's entry so far, easily the shortest story of the collection. Fun connections to the Cupboards books—Henry (kind of) makes an appearance. The phrase "willow worlds" appears in Leepike Ridge (p. 6).I haven't read any of Peterson's books yet, but I'd like to.Some artwork by friends/acquaintances from my years at Bob Jones: Cory Godbey and Justin Gerard.

    12. I enjoyed Andrew Peterson's Wingfeather saga thoroughly, so one can only imagine the thrill of learning of and getting your hands on a collection of short stories set in the same universe. Each of these tales carries the same sense of whimsy and wonder as the original saga, giving more depth to the history, world, and characters that makes you wish you could jump through the pages and be there.

    13. Each story pulls in some delightful quality of the original book (Silliness! Redemption! Wordplay! Punctuation!) while being its own unique story. These short stories aren't just side bars, but full, rich tales from the world that Andrew Peterson created.

    14. WellI really WANTED to love this book! From cover to cover, I was waiting for "THAT" moment when all the reviews live up to one's (inflated) expectations. I bought this for my sons as a stocking stuffer the moment it came out, and it earned me HUGE points--they were BEYOND excited to dig into it since we were still freshly grieving the end of our read-aloud time in the beloved Wingfeather series. Each night we'd gather up and I'd read aloud from Wingfeather Tales--only, my sons lost interest rap [...]

    15. After spending countless hours in the world of Aerwiar, reading and re-reading the original Wingfeather Saga with my 8 year-old daughter, we were more than excited to read Wingfeather Tales together. We were a bit disappointed. Wingfeather Tales includes 6 stories written by different authors. Of course, the stories by the Petersons were wonderful, and we enjoyed "The Ballad of Lanric and Rube," by Jonathan Rogers. "Willow World," by N. D. Wilson was fun, but we wished it was longer. It was a st [...]

    16. This book gets five enthusiastic stars on the strength of the heartbreakingly poignant novella The Places Beyond the Maps. It also has 4 other short stories and a poem.The Prince of Yorsha Doon: Fun, solid short story about a distant city that (I think) was mentioned a few times in the Wingfeather Saga cannon. It gets 3+ stars that are swamped by the gripping & epic 5 star journey in The Places Beyond the Maps.The Wooing of Sophelia Stupe: Short, goofy, semi-neurotic story that gets 3 stars [...]

    17. Speechless. Words truly fail me. I haven't read anything like this ever and definitely not by a modern-day author. The five-star rating is for the last story in the book, "The Places Beyond the Maps," by Douglas McKelvey. This story, which is practically a novella in length, wrestles with the deepest heart cries for justice, the existence of suffering, and all that is broken and wrong with the world. The prose is simply breathtaking, and the story heart-rending and yet heart-healing at once. My [...]

    18. Wonderful journey back into Aerwiar and the world of the Wingfeathers! McKelvey's novella was breathtaking and worth more than the price of the book! I had to read ND Wilson's story twice just to figure out what, exactly, I'd just read since it was written in his tilted, fast-paced style, but I enjoyed it all the same. AP's opening story about Yorsha Doon was perfectly cromulent, Trafton completely took on Pembrick's voice with a delightful missive, Pete's pirate tale of young Podo Helmer provid [...]

    19. This was really fun. Peterson describes his own reading of this book as finding "rooms" in the house he built that he never knew were there, and that feels accurate. It is worth noting that the final story is a bit different, much longer (its half the book) and more emotionally challenging. But it is also the one that affected me the most, and that I am still pondering a week and a half later.Note: In case you are wondering, you will need to read the 4 book Saga first to truly understand the bea [...]

    20. We read the Wingfeather series as a family and thoroughly enjoyed it. (My children were ages 3-10 at the time.) This book, Wingfeather Tales, is not actually part of the series, but is a compilation of stories that took place in the setting of the original series. This book was also written by multiple authors, so the writing styles vary a bit from story to story. So, it has a different vibe to it, but, overall, we enjoyed the stories.

    21. Story 1, by Andrew Peterson was a fun continuation. Story 2, by Jennifer Trafton was the most silly but had some nice connections. Story 3, by ND Wilson was the shortest, almost too short. Story 4, by AS Peterson was full of history of a made up world. Story 5, by Jonathan Rogers was hilarious and a tickling read aloud. Story 6, by Douglas McKelvey was perhaps the most beautiful and heart wrenching book I’ve ever read aloud. As close to perfect as we’ll find in Aerwear.

    22. This is such a fun exercise in fan fiction: 5 authors contribute to Andrew Peterson's own addition to the Wingfeather Saga with their unique voices and creative abilities. 6 different illustrators are featured. Clearly, everyone enjoys the world of Aeriwar and they add much to the "canon" without actually changing the canon. Delightful.Full review at Redeemed Reader

    23. Really fun read. Cool concept, having other authors spin stories within the same world. I'm glad I read it. The first stories are fantastic. With the final story, by Douglas McKelvey, I found myself bogged down in the first half but captivated at the end and really glad I hadn't stopped reading. Take my encouragement that it's worth persisting through until the end.

    24. What a great addition to the tales of the world of Aerwiar! Beautiful stories and illustrations, so varied in style. If you're a Wingfeather Saga fan, read this book! But only after you've finished the Wingfeather Saga since there are some spoilers.
