Additional Notes

From The Publisher*September has been crowned as Queen of Fairyland but the Kingdom is in chaos. The magic of a Dodo egg has brought every King, Queen, or Marquess of Fairyland back to life, each with a claim to the throne and their own plots and histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn't want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarckical Marathon, in which every would-be ruler will chase the Stoat of Arms across the nation, and the first to seize the poor beast will be crowned. Caught up in the madness are September's parents, who have crossed the universe to find their daughter.
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
