Home Catherynne M. Valente The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland . A Wyvern’s body is different from the body of a young girl in several major respects

Home Catherynne M. Valente The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There. There’s a Revel tonight, and she’s hardly got a dress picked out, let alone balloons enough for all. What’s a Revel? Ell smiled, and it was quite unlike any other smile September had seen on Ell’s dear, sweet face. A Wyvern’s body is different from the body of a young girl in several major respects. First, it has wings, which most young girls do not (there are exceptions). Second, it has a very long, thick tail, which some young girls may have, but those who find themselves so lucky keep them well hidden.

I loved The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, but I love this one even more. The Revels don't actually happen until the very end. Sorry for the spoilers. The rest of the book is sheer adventure. September has grown up in this book, and as a result everything here is more complex and grey. Her chief foe in this book, Halloween the Hollow Queen, is her own shadow – cut from her body and living the life she never dared to. As September descends into Fairyland Below, populated by devils and dragons and all the lost shadows of Fairyland, she confronts the hidden, secret selves of her best friends, her enemies, and herself.

The only trouble was, precious few books about swashbuckling folk have much to say on the subject of how to behave when one gets home. September had changed profoundly from a girl who desperately wanted such things to be real to one who knew they were real. Such a change is less like getting a new haircut than getting a new head. It did not particularly improve her school life.

Readers will also welcome back good friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. But in Fairyland Below, even the best of friends aren't always what they seem.

"A book is a door, you know. Always and forever. A book is a door into another place and another heart and another world."

You might have to be an authentic lover of good books to really appreciate the wit and whimsy found in The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There. Just look at the book cover and the title--this book does nothing to hide what it is. What is it? I'm so happy you asked . . .

Just like the first book, it's a fairy tale for lovers of fairy tales. It's packed full of more colorful imagination than any other book series I can think of. A quest, magic, mystery. Heroes, beasts, betrayals. Friends who become enemies, enemies who become friends. Kings, queens, princes, princesses. Longing for home, finding yourself, growing up. Lessons to learn, first kisses, consequences for actions.

"The smell of loving is a difficult one to describe, but if you think on the times when someone has held you close and made you safe, you will remember how it smells just as well as I do."

I think I enjoyed book 2 more than book 1, perhaps only because I'd acclimated myself to the unique prose--I knew what to expect. I didn't have to use my dictionary nearly as many times this time around either, although I did have to look up "brobdingnagian." (Go ahead, use that in a sentence. I dare you.) It's just so smartly written . . . I'm certain there are nuggets of meaning buried under the layers of quaintness that I am too dense to glean.

"So much light, sweet girl, begins in the dark."

Reading this book was an adventure. I recommend it to all.

Even though I enjoyed The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There, I was at the same time pretty disappointed because it didn't live up to my expectations. After thoroughly enjoying the previous book I couldn't wait to start this one and I thought for sure that it would be just as good. It wasn't. Still a good and exciting read, but just not as good as the other. However, I liked it enough to want to keep reading the series and I think a lot of that has to do with the main character as well as the ending of this book, which was fantastic.

I was so excited to get back to Fairyland with September and see all of her friends again. We do get to see them, but not in the way you may think. We are also introduced to a number of new characters and I think there were only two that I really enjoyed. Aubergine and Belinda Cabbage. I found them both very interesting. I also enjoyed the Watchful Dress, which isn't a character per se, but a very useful tool. It was pretty awesome and I wish I had a dress just like it. Most of the other characters just didn't appeal to me and weren't as developed as well as those in the previous book.

I thought the plot of the story was entertaining, but during some parts of September's adventure the story moved more slowly and became uninteresting. I was always counting the pages until the next chapter; I hate having to do that! This didn't happen more than once or twice, so it didn't discourage me from reading. It was just a little bump in the road. However, the ending was so amazing and emotional that I actually shed some tears! It was because of the ending that I gave the book 4 rather than 3 stars. The book also became way more interesting towards the end and it really picked up the pace.

Overall, I did enjoy the book and bumped up my rating because of the ending. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't as good as the first, but I still recommend reading this one. I love the world and the characters so much that I am going to have to pick up the next book in the series right away. If you love Alice in Wonderland type books I think you will really enjoy this series. I actually like these books more than Alice in Wonderland.

The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There was my one non-Brandon Sanderson pre-order this year. The first book, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making was one of the best books I read in 2011.

It has been a little over a year since September's first visit to Fairyland, where she defeated the evil Marquess and saved the land. She has been waiting for the Green Wind to come fetch her so she can see her friends Saturday and A-through-L and have a fun adventure, but she's afraid her friends have all forgotten her. When she finally gets to Fairyland, it turns out that the magic is seeping out of the land into Fairyland Below whose Queen is Halloween, September's shadow. So our intrepid September has to save Fairyland all over again... but now it's from her shadow self.

Pretty much everything about this book is gorgeous - the cover art, the words, the setting, the story. Valente is one of the most skilled writers I've encountered in her ability to play with words and ideas. Her prose is evocative and is full of whimsical but logical similes, allusions and metaphors. I would recommend this series based entirely on her writing, but every other part of the book is perfectly crafted too.

Valente tackles the age old children's book trope - growing up, but somehow manages to put a fresh face on it. September is a lovely protagonist - she's practical, but brave, very sure of herself and not afraid to take responsibility for her actions. But now she's outgrowing her childhood, and that means she's growing a heart and her feelings war. She's always seen things the way she wants them to be, and now she sees things as they are, and that's a hard realisation at any age. This is especially poignant when she encounters the shadow Marquess.

I especially loved the concept of shadows being everything the "real" person keeps hidden. Halloween is so wild because September tries her best to be proper, shadow Saturday is effusive, and shadow A-through-L is bashful. Mirroring was a big theme throughout the book - Fairyland Below is a mirror of Fairyland, and Fairyland itself mirrors wartime America.

I could go on and on, but I wouldn't leave you any magic to discover for yourself. This series is the new Phantom Tollbooth! It doesn't matter how old you are (you'll love the whimsy if you're young and you'll appreciate the nuances if you're older) - READ THIS! Just make sure you read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making first.
