Publisher Comments:

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 Fairylands shadows back.

Fans of Valente's bestselling, first Fairyland book will revel in the lush setting, characters, and language of Septembers 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. . . .

Review:

"Remarkable....Sophisticated, prodigious blending of familiar and original storytelling elements adds multilayered texture, while the rich prose oozes exotic, imaginative imagery." Kirkus, starred review

Review:

"[Valente] fills her Fairyland with magical wonder." School Library Journal

An absolutely spectacular read. I love Valente’s creativity, beautiful writing, and unpredictable twists and turns. You never know what spectacular new thing each page will hold. This book builds on the story started in the first The Girl Who book and ties up all of the loose ends in a wonderful way. Highly recommended to those who love fantasies written in a beautiful and lyrical way.

A worthy sequel to 'The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making'!

In this one, September finally makes her way back to Fairyland to find that people's shadows have gone missing! Figuring this is her fault on account of the way she gave away her own shadow the last time she was there, September vows to make things right and sets off for Fairyland Below. It's got the same charming kinds of characters, lovely use of language and wonderful fairytale quality that the first one has, so I was really, really pleased.

Color me excited! If you haven't read the first book, go read it now. It feels like Chronicles of Narnia or Alice in Wonderland in your head and is worth every minute you spend reading it and then re-reading it.
