The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • It’s an allusive playground for adults, but even though young readers won’t catch every reference, those who thrill to lovingly wrought tales of fantasy and adventure (think McCaughrean or DiCamillo) will be enchanted.
    Publishers Weekly
  • Told by an omniscient narrator who directly engages readers, the densely textured text deftly mixes and matches familiar fairytale elements, creating a world as bizarre and enchanting as any Wonderland or Oz and a heroine as curious, resourceful and brave as any Alice or Dorothy.
    Kirkus Reviews
