The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

(1)

September is a twelve-year-old girl, Somewhat Grown and Somewhat Heartless, and she longs for adventure. So when a Green Wind and a Leopard of Little Breezes invite her to Fairyland - well, of course, she accepts (mightn´t you?). When she gets there, she finds a land crushed by the iron rule of a villainous Marquess - she soon discovers that she alone holds the key to restoring order.

As September forges her way through Fairyland, with a book-loving dragon and a boy named Saturday by her side, she makes many friends and mistakes. But while she loses her shadow, her shoe and her way, she finds adventure, courage, a rather special Spoon, and a lot more besides . . .

A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom. -- Neil Gaiman An Alice in Wonderland for the 21st century... So effortless, so vivid, so funny. Every page has a phrase or observation to savour and her characters are wondrous creations. Sunday Telegraph A charming modern fairytale...with a knowing twinkle in its eye Telegraph Bundles of imagination and wry wit... This is a sophisticated world of forfeits, paradoxes and tricks. Financial Times A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy tale - full of oddments, whimsy, and joy. -- Holly Black If you haven't heard of Catherynne Valente, give it time. She's only 32, and she's writing at a furious pace. Valente brings fathomless inventiveness to her fiction... A book for young adults, rich and strange enough for grown-ups, too. -- Lev Grossman A whole esoteric world of whimsy - Alice meets the Wizard of Oz meets the Persephone story with a whiff of Narnia. Independent on Sunday ...it is in fact one of the most extraordinary works of fantasy for adults or children so far this century. -- Lev Grossman Time Sweet fairytale, shot through with salty tears - magic! -- Cory Doctorow Get swept away by this charming book Vogue Pure escapism Bliss magazine

A magical fairy tale for readers of all ages
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 15.01.2014

"But no one may know the shape of the tale in which they move. And, perhaps, we do not truly know which sort of beast it is, either. Stories have a way of changing faces. They are unruly things, undisciplined, given to delinquency and the throwing of erasers. This... "But no one may know the shape of the tale in which they move. And, perhaps, we do not truly know which sort of beast it is, either. Stories have a way of changing faces. They are unruly things, undisciplined, given to delinquency and the throwing of erasers. This is why we must close them up into thick, solid books, so they cannot get out and cause trouble." This story is as thrilling and fun to read as it is beautiful. Catherynne M. Valente's writing is some of the most gorgeous, smart and magical I have ever had the pleasure of reading. There are very few books I have encountered where you feel like every single word is perfect, and used in a way you never thought to use it, and made better because of it. I can only tell you, all of you, to go and read this, because it would be a terrible shame if you missed out on it.
