Description

"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.

The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two is another rich, beautifully told, wisely humorous, and passionately layered book from New York Times-bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente.

Review quote

"Valente's Fairyland is terrible and beautiful--with a circus made out of stationery, a city populated with photographic negatives, and glimpses of Septembers and Saturdays past and future just a few of the strange wonders introduced in this volume." --The Horn Book

"Like September, readers may leave their hearts in Fairyland." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"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
