Charming Fantasy For Today

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own MakingThe Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente is a must read for lovers of whimsy and original voices. Twelve-year-old September leaves her boring life in rural America at the invitation of the Green Wind. She meets many interesting characters on her journey including  El the Wyvern and Saturday the Marid.

I originally found this story in installments online and had to read the book in its entirety. A modern day Alice In Wonderland and Wizard Of Oz tale that will capture and adults heart perhaps even deeper than a child’s. The tale goes darker than other Fairyland adventures, but never abandons hope. Huge recommendation here to read and recommend the Andre Norton Award winner to anyone who enjoys fantasy.
