This news has been a long time coming, dear readers, hence the many, many exclamation points which will most surely pepper this post. (!) My friend Chris Wall (VeggieTales, 3-2-1 Penguins), and I formed Shining Isle Productions (see what we did there?) in order to tell the story of the Wingfeather Saga in a multi-season animated series. We want to bring the Igiby children all the way from book one to book four on the screen, so you and your family (and hopefully a lot of other folks) can experience this story in a whole new way. (!!)
So here’s the fun part. Well, one of the fun parts. If we can raise enough funds, we’re going to publish Wingfeather Tales, a brand new collection of short stories from the world of Aerwiar. But that’s not all. I’ve invited a bunch of author friends to write the stories, and a bunch of illustrator friends to illuminate them. If we can reach enough stretch goals, we’ll get Wingfeather tales from N.D. Wilson (100 Cupboards), Douglas McKelvey (The Angel Knew Papa and the Dog), A. S. Peterson (Fiddler’s Gun), Jennifer Trafton (The Rise and Fall of Mt. Majestic), and Jonathan Rogers (The Wilderking Trilogy). And check this out! We’ll get illustrations from John Hendrix (Miracle Man), Joe Sutphin (The Warden and the Wolf King), Justin Gerard (The Monster in the Hollows), Aedan Peterson (Pembrick’s Creaturepedia), and Doug TenNapel (Ghostopolis, Earthworm Jim). I’m going to supervise and edit the book, and we’re going to fling open the doors to Aerwiar again so we can find out what else has been going on in Glipwood and the Green Hollows and Dugtown. But we’re going to need your help to make this happen.
There’s SO much to tell you about, and the best way for you to discover it will be to click this link and be whooshed to the Kickstarter page. You can read about all the cool rewards for our backers (stickers, posters, t-shirts, original concept art, patches, character cards!), and find out about our master plan to take over at least a tiny part of the world.
THANK YOU for your enormous support for these books (and hopefully the film). Team Peterson here at the Warren give you thanks and wish you peace.
