Description from Goodreads:
“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.
Why Am I Excited?
If you’ve read any of the other Fairyland books, I’m assuming you’re not asking this question. These books are absolutely magical. It seems pretty expected to compare them to Alice in Wonderland, but that’s about the best I can do. In this series a young girl, September, finds herself whisked away to Fairyland where she goes on all varieties of adventures. With a great main character and strong supporting cast, this series has some of the absolute best world-building I’ve ever experienced. Much like September at the end of each book I am longing to get back to Fairyland and am counting down the days for this next installment. (And if you haven’t read the first or second books in this series, stop what you are doing now and GO!)
