The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making - Ana Juan, Catherynne M. Valente I've read quite a few children's books in the last few months. Nothing, however, has left a greater impression than this. (Outside of Wonder) This book is just pure delight. Think "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" meets "Chronicles of Narnia" and maybe a little of "The Wizard of Oz". Whimsical, charming and full of fantastically dimensional characters, including our young little heroine, September. I cannot wait to see what sort of adventures meet September in the next book.
