The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making - Ana Juan, Catherynne M. Valente Lovely. Utterly, utterly LOVELY.

Read this if you like children's/YA fantasy. Read this if you like fairy tales. Read this if you've ever dreamed of travelling to fairyland and imagined what that might be like. Also read it if none of these apply. It's beautiful.

4 stars because I do have a small problem with the "Something bad happens! Ah, it's okay. Something bad happens! Ah, it's okay." type of story-telling that also bugged me in Un Lun Dun. But that's just me, so you should totally ignore me and read this.

Thanks again, Jana, for this lovely gift.
