"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.
Catherynne M. Valente began September s adventures in installments on the Web; the project won legions of fans and also the CultureGeek Best Web Fiction of the Decade award. She lives with her husband on an island off the coast of Maine. She has written many novels for adults, but this is her children s book debut.
