Age Group
Book Types
Take a trip to fairyland by sailing right on in to the fabulous fantasy world of Catherynne M Valente. Join 12-year-old September as she meets Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket) and leaves her normal life behind. Why does she go with this mysterious stranger? Because not only is her dad at war and her mum at work, it turns out Fairyland really, really needs her help. The Marquess who’s in charge is unpredictable and fickle, and desperately in need of a special talisman – one that only September can fetch. I’ve never read a book that made fairies sound as much fun as this one does. Fairyland is like nowhere you’ve ever been before but the best thing is that because this is the first book in the series, you’ll have the chance to visit again and again. - Martha MacDiarmid, Animation Producer
