The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

In the kingdom of Fairyland-Below, preparations are underway for the annual Revels . . . but aboveground, the creatures of Fairyland are in no mood for a party.
It has been a long time since young September bid farewell to Fairyland, and she is excited to see it again; but upon her return she is shocked to find that her friends have been losing their shadows, and therefore their magic, to the kingdom of Fairyland-Below... It spells certain disaster and September won't stand for it. Determined to make amends, she travels down into the underworld where, among creatures of ice and moonlight, she encounters a face she recognizes all too well: Halloween, the Hollow Queen. Only then does September realize what she must do to save Fairyland from slipping into the mundane world forever.
Come and join in the Revels with September and her friends. But be warned: in Fairyland-Below, even the best of friends aren't always what they seem . . .
Praise for The Girl Who Circumnavigated Farilyand in a Ship of Her Own Making:
'A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom.' Neil Gaiman.
'An Alice in Wonderland for the 21st century... So effortless, so vivid, so funny. Every page has a phrase or observation to savour and her characters are wondrous creations.' Sunday Telegraph.
'A charming modern fairytale...with a knowing twinkle in its eye.' Telegraph.
'A whole esoteric world of whimsy - Alice meets the Wizard of Oz meets the Persephone story with a whiff of Narnia.' Independent on Sunday.
'Bundles of imagination and wry wit.' Financial Times.
Rezension
The strength of this fable for all ages lies its droll tone and witty moralising. It is also stuffed with extraordinary and indomitable female characters. Financial Times

Zitat
The strength of this fable for all ages lies its droll tone and witty moralising. It is also stuffed with extraordinary and indomitable female characters. Financial Times Catherynne Valente has, with a minimum of fuss, written one of the great young-adult fantasy diptychs since Lewis Carroll. Time Magazine One of the strongest fantasy novels for young readers I've had the pleasure of getting lost in...There's as much Phantom Tollbooth here as there is Narnia...Shot through with menace and heroism, [y]ou never know what's coming next in Fell Beneath. -- Cory Doctorow Familiar and original storytelling... The rich prose oozes exotic, imaginative imagery. Juan's black-and-white spot art highlights September's questing. Heartless September sprouts a heart during this remarkable, awesome journey. Kirkus (starred review) A stellar sequel... Valente's inviting, lush, and densely detailed world is evocative of well-travelled lands such as Neverland and Oz, but, at the same time, is uniquely its own. This is sure to draw new fans. Booklist (starred review) Valente is making new myths right now, before our eyes. Don't miss the show. Lev Grossman
