Such a delightful read! I quite enjoyed romping about Fairyland with a girl named September and a Wyverary (♥!) and other assorted characters. I do hope there are more adventures to be had with them!

The narrative voice is especially wonderful. This book just begs to be read aloud and my one sadness while reading it was that I had no one around to read it aloud with. This book is an example of not just telling a story, but storytelling (which is an entirely different and more magical thing, in my book). (Yes, pun intended. :P)
