THE GIRL WHO CIRCUMNAVIGATED FAIRYLAND IN A SHIP OF HER OWN MAKING

by | Read by Catherynne M. Valente

Young Adult Young Adult • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The author’s reading reflects her fondness for the world she has created. She welcomes listeners to Fairyland through the perspective of 12-year-old spunky September. Having been whisked from her boring Nebraska home by a flying leopard, she’s charged with ridding this world of the tyrannical Marquess. She runs into inventive characters such as Wyveray, an offspring of a dragon and a library. Sensory details delight as, for example, September steps into a golden frothy bath “redolent of mint and forest nights, and sweet cakes and hot tea, and very cold starlight.” A lyrical sentences style, references to classic fantasies, complicated psychology, and philosophical underpinnings may create the need for a second listen.
