Start the Fairyland Series by Catherynne Valente

What is a Wyverary you ask? Doesn’t it sound like library? Read - The Girl who circumnavigated fairyland and find out the answer!   Quite a tale indeed, narrated well by the author with quirky fun language that keeps your interest for the next quote! Here is a quote to remember - “When one is traveling, everything looks brighter and lovelier. That does not mean it IS brighter and lovelier; it just means that sweet, kindly home suffers in comparison to tarted-up foreign places with all their jewels on.” This is the first in the Fairyland series, order it today!
