Additional Notes

From The Publisher*One of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century." - Time magazine, on the Fairyland series September has longed to return to Fairyland after her first adventure there. And when she finally does, she learns that its inhabitants have been losing their shadows - and their magic - to the world of Fairyland Below. This underworld has a new ruler: Halloween, the Hollow Queen, who is September's shadow. And Halloween does not want to give Fairyland's shadows back. Fans of Valente's bestselling, first Fairyland book will revel in the lush setting, characters, and language of September's journey, all brought to life by fine artist Ana Juan. Readers will also welcome back good friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. But in Fairyland Below, even the best of friends aren't always what they seem. . . . "
Review Quote*Praise for The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland: "A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian fairy tale, done with heart and wisdom.' - Newbery Award-winning author Neil Gaiman * "This glittering confection is . . . a kind of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by way of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. . . . [I]t's the sort of book one doesn't want to end.' - Publishers Weekly, starred review * "This book is quite simply a gold mine.' - Booklist, starred review * "Told by an omniscient narrator who directly engages readers, the densely textured text deftly mixes and matches familiar fairy-tale elements, creating a world as bizarre and enchanting as any Wonderland or Oz, and a heroine as curious, resourceful, and brave as any Alice or Dorothy. Complex, rich, and memorable.' - Kirkus Reviews, starred review "September is a clever, fun, strong-hearted addition to the ranks of Bold, Adventurous Girls. Valente's subversive storytelling is sheer magic.' - Tamora Pierce, author of the Immortals series
