Fairyland

Catherynne M. Valente’s New York Times bestselling Fairyland series, beautifully illustrated by Ana Juan, is “one of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children” (Time magazine).

Twelve-year-old September’s life in Omaha, Nebraska goes topsy-turvy when her father is sent off to war and her mother to work. But she has her own adventures to look forward to when a gentleman identifying himself as the Green Wind invites her on an adventure to Fairyland, where royals reign, and mythological and magical creatures thrive.

“This is a kind of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by way of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland—it’s the sort of book one doesn’t want to end.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review, on The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making)
