In the kingdom of Fairyland-Below, preparations are underway for the annual Revels . . . but aboveground, the creatures of Fairyland are in no mood for a party. It has been a long time since young September bid farewell to Fairyland, and she is excited to see it again; but upon her return she is shocked to find that her friends have been losing their shadows, and therefore their magic, to the kingdom of Fairyland-Below... It spells certain disaster and September won't stand for it. Determined to make amends, she travels down into the underworld where, among creatures of ice and moonlight, she encounters a face she recognizes all too well: Halloween, the Hollow Queen. Only then does September realize what she must do to save Fairyland from slipping into the mundane world forever.Come and join in the Revels with September and her friends. But be warned: in Fairyland-Below, even the best of friends aren't always what they seem . . . Praise for The Girl Who Circumnavigated Farilyand in a Ship of Her Own Making:'A glorious balancing act between modernism and the Victorian Fairy Tale, done with heart and wisdom.' Neil Gaiman.'A mad, toothsome romp of a fairy tale full of oddments, whimsy, and joy.' Holly Black.'An Alice in Wonderland for the 21st century... So effortless, so vivid, so funny. Every page has a phrase or observation to savour and her characters are wondrous creations.' Sunday Telegraph.'A charming modern fairytale...with a knowing twinkle in its eye.' Telegraph.'A whole esoteric world of whimsy - Alice meets the Wizard of Oz meets the Persephone story with a whiff of Narnia.' Independent on Sunday.'Bundles of imagination and wry wit... This is a sophisticated world of forfeits, paradoxes and tricks.' Financial Times.'Get swept away by this charming book' Vogue'[This book] will knock you off your feet with its magic and general loveliness . . . This is fantasy fiction at its best. Add it to your wish lists immediately!' Wondrous Reads. 'Here is a reading experience unto itself: unforgettable, and so very beautiful.' Fantastic Fiction. 'A wonderfully inventive tale and such an adventure. It is apparent from the outset that Valente has such love for her characters and the world which she has created, and the story is a perfect read for lovers of nostalgia and fans of fantasy novels of all ages.' Book Geeks.

I’d read the first few books in this series when they came out and then got somewhat distracted. I did like this one, but I didn’t feel the same level of engagement/enjoyment as I once had. I’m not sure if this is a function of being older or if there’s a flaw in the book itself.

As magical, whimsical and enchanting as the first book, though somehow not quite as charming since it lacks that complete newness and thrill of discovery, as a second book so often does.
