"Valente's Fairyland is terrible and beautiful--with a circus made out of stationery, a city populated with photographic negatives, and glimpses of Septembers and Saturdays past and future just a few of the strange wonders introduced in this volume." --The Horn Book
"Like September, readers may leave their hearts in Fairyland." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"As usual, Valente enlightens readers with pearly gleams of wisdom about honesty, identity, free will, and growing up. September often worries who she should be and what path she should follow, but the lovely truth, tenderly told, is that it's all up to her. Thanks to a dramatic cliffhanger ending, there is sure to be more empowerment and whimsy to come." --Booklist, starred review
