“One of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century.”—TIME Magazine, on the Fairyland series
September misses Fairyland and her friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. She longs to leave the routines of home, and embark on a new adventure. Little does she know that this time, she will be spirited away to the moon, reunited with her friends, and find herself faced with saving Fairyland from a moon-Yeti with great and mysterious powers.
Here is another rich, beautifully told, wisely humorous, and passionately [layered] book from New York Times-bestselling author, Catherynne M. Valente.
I will never be able to get enough of Fairyland! The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two brings our heroine September and the reader back to Fairyland in yet another adventure that is wholly unique yet in keeping with the glorious style of the previous two books.
This year’s birthday come and gone, September is a year older, indeed she is 15 now and the time has past when she should have been bundled off to Fairyland. But of course being a year older, she is much more mature. Seeing this progression is part of the journey and the fun. These would be perfect books for a young girl to read as she is moving from childhood into puberty. The reader is witness to September’s marvelous growth from a child into a preteen and now to a young teenager. If the reader is a child themselves imagine how amazing that would be?
I cannot say enough how amazing these books are but perhaps this might put it into perspective somewhat: Now, I loved the Harry Potter series – but to me, these Fairyland books blow them out of the water. Take my money, put me in a corner and give me some cookies, I won’t come out for anything until I’m done reading. These are exactly the books that someday I will read with my children.
