tall tales tuesday – the girl who… fairyland – Catherynne M. Valente

follow September’s adventures through Fairyland with an intriguing cast of characters. we’ve just started the series. it seems obvious to relate this to Alice in Wonderland, but really, they’re similar only in the surrealism and “through the lookingglass”ishness. in some respects the girl who… series is more complex, relating more to the (adult) reader. an entertaining read aloud, but definitely not simple.  finished the second and have ordered the third.
