"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." "Publisher's Weekly," starred review
September is a girl who longs for adventure. When she is invited to Fairyland by a Green Wind and a Leopard, well, of course she accepts. (Mightn t you?) But Fairyland is in turmoil, and it will take one twelve-year-old girl, a book-loving dragon, and a strange and almost human boy named Saturday to vanquish an evil Marquess and restore order.
