About the Story
Edge is a curious young scientist. She and her mother are the only animals on Crescent Island who can talk... or so she thinks. When she meets an outcast named Jessop, Edge learns that the world is bigger and more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.
This unique story is suitable for children aged 8 and up, and features gorgeous world-building, engaging characters, and positive role models. Parents and teachers will find plenty of opportunities to discuss STEM concepts with children, along with a growing list of resources to share with young scientists.
A great gift for fans of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, Mouseheart, and Warrior Cats.

"Edge Anomaly 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."

"Sort of like an ancient legend rewritten with STEM ideas. It's also about ethics, and the power of empathy and frendship. A really great read!"
"I adored this book so much. I think it is perfect for kids and young adults who love animals (as an avid reader of Animorphs, my adolescent self is so taken into it). The characters are really interesting, and the world is so well developed. I can't wait for the next installment in this series!"
"I really enjoyed Edge Anomaly. The characters are interesting and full of personality. The author's descriptions were vivid, and she did a great job creating the exotic and magical world the story takes place in. The story was written at a good pace, so it didn't feel too slow or too rushed. Unlike some books, this one was very unpredictable, and I had no idea how it was going to go. I liked the plot twists, and I enjoyed reading about Edge's adventures.The vocabulary index at the beginning was helpful too. Anyone who likes books about animals, science fiction, and other worlds will not be disappointed with Meg Rabbit's original and compelling story."
"I really enjoyed this story. It was super original which was refreshing and made for a fun reading experience as I didn't know where the story was going to go. This can be a great read for all ages, especially for the middle grade age group. It's fantastical but also explores some important themes. I absolutely love the illustration, the cover is so cute. I would definitely read another book about these characters."
