Lina asked:

Why does it say "The Books of Bayern"? Is the author referencing Bavaria? (Bavaria in German is called Bayern)

Lara Willard According to the author interview at the back of the book, Bayern is inspired in part by Germany, so that could explain the name!
J.D.Staton There are four completely different books in this series, written by Shannon Hale. The first book in the series is "The Goose Girl" and there are three more which form the tetralogy known as "The Books Of Bayern" (Bayern is the nation/kingdom the stories take place in).
