Review quote

The Fairyland Series:

"One of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century." --Time magazine, on the Fairyland series

"The rules of realism in Valente's universe are not simply bent or ignored, but systematically and gleefully reversed." --The New Yorker

"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

"Amusing, wrenching, and thought-provoking." --The Horn Book

"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

"[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 Reviews, starred review

"This book is quite simply a gold mine." --Booklist, starred review
