From Publishers Weekly
Starscape, a new imprint, launches a list of science fiction and fantasy titles aimed at readers aged 10 and up, adapted from acclaimed adult titles (see details in Children's Books, Jan. 21). Among them are Robert Jordan's From the Two Rivers and To the Blight, adapted into two volumes from his adult title The Eye of the World: The Wheel of Time, Book 1. Kid-friendly additions include a new prologue, larger print, a glossary and a smattering of illustrations.
