North! Or Be Eaten: The Wingfeather Saga

Andrew Peterson


Now that Janner and his siblings know that they are the Jewels of Anniera, they have no choice but to flee into the Ice Prairies to avoid the wrath of the Fangs of Dang. Yet, with constant pursuit from the enemy, internal betrayals, and peril from their fellow Skreeans on every side, it seems impossible that they will ever find safety. If the remnant of the royal family is to survive, Janner, Tink, and Leeli must choose to stay together and protect each other– but the cost will be deadly.

Question 1 - Podo struggles with telling his grandchildren his past, including that he used to be a Strander and that he was a dragon hunter in his pirating days. What does the Bible reveal is the only way to deal with our sin?

Discussion Guide - Read 1 John 1:5-10. Discuss how we are commanded to confess and repent of our sin and we are promised that God, through the atoning work of Jesus, will forgive us of our sin.

Question 2 - When Janner was trapped in the Fork Factory, the one thing that kept him from despair was remembering his true identity - he was the son of Esben Wingfeather, the Throne Warden of Anniera. Why is it important that Christians remember our true identity?

Discussion Guide - Read Ephesians 1 and discuss the truths that chapter reveals about the Christian’s identity. Then, discuss how if we forget that we are children of God, we will forget our value and live as if we must create our own value and fleeting, temporary skills, relationships, or accomplishments.

Question 3 - Artham overcomes his shame by surrendering himself to the Maker in order to save Kalmar and become a brand new creation. How does this transformation reflect what Scripture says happens when we turn to Christ?

Discussion Guide - Read 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 and Romans 12:1-2. Discuss how when we repent of our sin and trust in Jesus, God doesn’t just make us clean, He transforms (regenerates) us. We are a new creation.
