The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship
of Her Own Making
Published by Corsair, 2012
Who doesn’t love a fairytale? This book is for any child who would love to be swept away on a mad romp of a quest in a land unlike any other.
September is a twelve-year-old girl from Omaha. Her Dad is fighting in a faraway war, her mum is always out at work, and September is stuck in a lonely, adventureless rut. So when the Green Wind arrives at her window and invites her to Fairyland, she accepts in a flash.
But Fairyland is in crisis and confusion, crushed by the iron rule of the villainous Marquess – and September alone holds the key to restoring order. Well! She knows what a girl with a quest must do: she sets out to Fix Things.
With a book-loving dragon and a mysterious boy named Saturday by her side, September faces peril and pandemonium; loses her shadow, her shoe and her way – and finds a great deal more besides. But time is short, and time is ticking, and every story must have an ending. Can September save Fairyland? Can she even save herself?
It’s a beautiful book and perfect to take away
on your summer holiday. Fairyland was published by Feiwel & Friends
as a novel for young adults (10-14 years old), but has been embraced as
a tale for all ages. So parents and older siblings may be waiting in line
when you finish it!
