This Hop features fairy tales and books with happy endings which would make just about every children’s book eligible! This Hop currently has 140 entries and runs from October 9th to 14th.
We are thrilled to be participating in another Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a Reader Not a Writer. For the Happily Ever After Giveaway Hop, we will be offering one lucky winner two highly acclaimed middle grade books by author Catherynne M. Valente: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (2011) and the newly released The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There (October 2012).
Summary (Amazon): Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland. The new Marquess is unpredictable and fickle, and also not much older than September. Only September can retrieve a talisman the Marquess wants from the enchanted woods, and if she doesn’t . . . then the Marquess will make life impossible for the inhabitants of Fairyland. September is already making new friends, including a book-loving Wyvern and a mysterious boy named Saturday.
Summary (Amazon): September has longed to return to Fairyland after her first adventure there. And when she finally does, she learns that its inhabitants have been losing their shadows—and their magic—to the world of Fairyland Below. This underworld has a new ruler: Halloween, the Hollow Queen, who is September’s shadow. And Halloween does not want to give Fairyland’s shadows back.
Fans of Valente’s bestselling, first Fairyland book will revel in the lush setting, characters, and language of September’s journey, all brought to life by fine artist Ana Juan. Readers will also welcome back good friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. But in Fairyland Below, even the best of friends aren’t always what they seem.
Prize: One print copy of each of Catherynne Valente’s middle grade adventures, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making and The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There
