CSFF Blog Tour: The Monster in the Hollows by Andrew Peterson

 This months CSFF blog tour is on book three of the wonderful series, The Wingfeather Saga by the talented Andrew Peterson.
Janner Wingfeather’s father was the High King of Anniera. But his father is gone. The kingdom has fallen. The royal family is on the run, and the Fang armies of Gnag the Nameless are close behind.
Janner and his family hope to find refuge in the last safe place in the world: the Green Hollows—a land of warriors feared even by Fangs of Dang. But there’s a big problem. Janner’s little brother-heir to the throne of Anniera-has grown a tail. And gray fur. Not to mention two pointed ears and long, dangerous fangs. To the suspicious folk of the Green Hollows he looks like a monster.
But Janner knows better. His brother isn’t as scary as he looks. He’s perfectly harmless.
Or is he?
Join the Wingfeathers on an adventure filled with mystery, betrayal, and sneakery in a land of tasty fruits. There’s a monster on the loose and the truth lurks in the shadows.

A short Biography on the author by the author~

Hey, folks. If you're just discovering me or any of my work, it can be a little confusing because there are several facets to it. 
I write songs. I also record them to these cool things called CDs and put on concerts around the country. (And beyond! To my great delight, I get to play in Europe every year or so.)
I write books. Right now I'm writing four-part fantasy series for young readers called the Wingfeather Saga. I just published the third book, The Monster in the Hollows. I also illustrated some of the pictures (but not the coolest ones). The last book in the series should be published by next Christmas.
I'm the proprietor of the Rabbit Room., a community of songwriters, authors, and artists interested in storytelling, faith, and fellowship.
• I'm a proud member of the Square Peg Alliance, a happy band of singer/songwriters who write together, tour together, and eat together.
• I've been married for fifteen years to Jamie, and we have three sweet children: Aedan (12), Asher (11), and Skye (8). We live in a magical place we call the Warren, just south of Nashville.
The common thread in all this is my love for Christ and his Kingdom, my belief in the power of story and art, and my need for family and community. If I had to boil it all down, I'd say this: I want to use my gifts to tell the truth, and to tell it as beautifully as I can.
 To read a bigger and more detailed biography go here and scroll down to the first picture... it's a great story, I recommend checking it out!

 ~Here is my Praise on the book:
The Monster in the Hollows, is another grand adventure. The book alone is beautiful... yes, I do judge a book by it's cover. The story is fun, unique, mysterious, at times scary, and very touching. Andrew Peterson is a great storyteller. I'm looking forward to book four! If you love adventure you will love The Wingfeather Saga, but beware of the Toothy Cows.
