After a little visit to the Hernando Library, I found a lovely little title and a few others to bring home. (Well, maybe not so little)
“The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making”
By Catherynne M. Valentine
“September is a girl who longs for adventure. When she is invited to Fairyland by a Green Wind and a Leopard, 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. Not since Oz has there been a land-or a cast of characters-so rich and entrancing.”
Seriously, that’s the title.
It’s a lovely little book and winner of the Andre Norton Award. Great story full of color characters. I’m actually reading it before bed to Son#2. He likes it a lot.
Now I know for all you new visitors you are like, wait. Don’t you write New Adult and Erotica???
Why, yes. Yes I do. But I will always be a reader of all kinds of books first. I’ve never been a genre snob or been one to turn away a well-crafted story. And this is a well-crafted story with beautiful prose. If you need a little something different, give this book some love.
