Edge Anomaly: The Spirit of Crescent Island by Meg Rabbit is a gorgeous children's science fiction tale about a civilization of animals that will win hearts and take over every reader's mind. This utterly charming story is about a young scientist called Edge who lives in a treehouse with her mother, Mana. Edge's world is fascinating but limited. She doesn't have friends and thinks that she and her mother are the only animals on Crescent Island who can talk. But when she meets another creature in the forest, Edge discovers she can't introduce herself because she doesn't know anything about her identity and the world around her. When Edge begins to unlock the secrets of her past, she learns about races, hierarchy, a secret society, and the war that threatens her world. While transitioning from childhood to adulthood, she also discovers she must go on a mysterious mission that she doesn't fully understand.

Edge Anomaly by Meg Rabbit is an exotic, gripping, and magical story so well written that not only children will be enchanted by it; adults will be mesmerized, too. Books like this one succeed in building magnificent and complex worlds that fire my imagination and inspire my love for reading. Edge Anomaly is captivating from the very start. Each scene and character are well presented. I really liked the colorful animal world that Meg Rabbit has crafted. This inspirational story contains adventure, danger, secrets to uncover, and delightful characters who are good role models. They remind us of the importance and complexity of trust and friendship and push us to think about the role of science, technology, and engineering. I'm looking forward to reading more books from Meg Rabbit.
