Additional Notes

From The Publisher*This final book in the New York Times-bestselling Fairyland series finds September accidentally crowned the Queen of Fairyland. But there are others who believe they have a fair and good claim on the throne, so there is a Royal Race - whoever wins will seize the crown. Along the way, beloved characters including the Wyverary, A-Through-L, the boy Saturday, the changelings Hawthorn and Tamburlaine, the wombat Blunderbuss, and the gramophone Scratch are caught up in the madness. And September's parents have crossed the universe to find their daughter. Who will win? What will become of September, Saturday, and A-Through-L? The answers will surprise you, and are as bewitching and bedazzling as fans of the series have come to expect.
Review Quote*The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Book 1): A New York Times Children's Bestseller Winner of the Andre Norton Award "A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian fairy tale, done with heart and wisdom." -Neil Gaiman Praise for The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There (Book 2): A Time magazine Best Book of 2012 "Valente's inviting, lush, and densely detailed world is evocative of well-traveled lands such as Neverland and Oz, but, at the same time, is uniquely its own." -Booklist, starred review The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut The Moon in Two (Book 3): "Richly layered imagery draws deeply from the fairy-tale canon as well as Valente's imagination… .Like September, readers may leave their hearts in Fairyland." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review The Boy Who Lost Fairyland (Book 4): "Readers may wish the words were food, so they could eat them up." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
