Review quote

"As usual, Valente enlightens readers with pearly gleams of wisdom about honesty, identity, free will, and growing up. September often worries who she should be and what path she should follow, but the lovely truth, tenderly told, is that it's all up to her. Thanks to a dramatic cliffhanger ending, there is sure to be more empowerment and whimsy to come." -- "Booklist", starred review Praise for previous books: "A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom." -- Neil Gaiman, Newbery Award-winning author of "The Graveyard Book ""September is a clever, fun, stronghearted addition to the ranks of bold, adventurous girls. Valente's subversive storytelling is sheer magic." -- Tamora Pierce, author of The Immortals series "A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy tale -- full of oddments, whimsy, and joy." -- Holly Black, author of "Zombies vs. Unicorns "and the Spiderwick Chronicles "When I saw that this book reminds me simultaneously of E. Nesbit, James Thurber, and the late Eva Ibbotson, I don't mean to take anything awy from its astonishing originality. It's a charmer from the first page, managing the remarkable parlay of being at once ridiculously funny and surprisingly suspenseful. Catherynne Valente is a find, at any age!" -- Peter S. Beagle, author of "The Last Unicorn" "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." -- "Publisher's Weekly", Starred Review "[Fairyland creates] a world as bizarre and enchanting as any Wonderland or Oz and a heroine as curious, resourceful and brave as any Alice or Dorothy. Complex, rich and memorable." -- "Kirkus, " Starred Review"This book is quite simply a gold mine." --" Booklist", Starred Review"Amusing, wrenching, and thought-provoking." -- "The Horn Book"
