“Valente makes magic again with the sequel to The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland. After waiting anxiously for a year and keeping her first trip to Fairyland a secret, September literally tumbles back into the fantasy land for another adventure. It seems the trouble in Fairyland might be of September's own making. She gave up her own shadow in the first book, and now all the shadows and magic in Fairyland are disappearing and September must travel to the underworld to confront the Hollow Queen and restore the magic to her beloved secret world. Such a fun series!”

Description

September has longed to return to Fairyland after her first adventure there. And when she finally does, she learns that its inhabitants have been losing their shadows--and their magic--to the world of Fairyland Below. This underworld has a new ruler: Halloween, the Hollow Queen, who is September's shadow. And Halloween does not want to give Fairyland's shadows back.

Fans of Valente's bestselling, first Fairyland book will revel in the lush setting, characters, and language of September's journey, all brought to life by fine artist Ana Juan. Readers will also welcome back good friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. But in Fairyland Below, even the best of friends aren't always what they seem. . . .
