The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two

Catherynne M. Valente, read by the author. Dreamscape Media, unabridged, seven CDs, 8.5 hrs., $59.99 ISBN 978-1-62406-761-7
In this third installment in Valente’s ongoing series, 14-year-old heroine September is patiently waiting until she can leave the real world behind and return to Fairyland, her friends there, and their magical adventures. When she finally gets back to Fairyland, she finds herself a little bit older, a little bit wiser, and on a mission that will take her all the way to the moon. As narrator, Valente capably captures September’s character. Her reading has a lyrical—almost hypnotic—quality to it, and listeners will appreciate her restrained but effective vocal interpretations of the characters. And while her voice is more mature sounding than that of her young protagonist, fans of the series—both young and old—will doubtlessly find this a fun listen. Ages 10-14. A Feiwel & Friends hardcover. (Oct.)
