Fairyland 2 Cover Joy

The ARCs arrived on my doorstep over the weekend. The illustrations are heartbreakingly amazing. The cover is…well. Just look.

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, and 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…

Eeeeeeeee. It’s so, so beautiful. What do you think?

It comes out October 2nd. You can pre-order it here.

My class got very excited when they heard you were writing a sequel. They got very keen, very quickly, on the title "Shadowsearch" so you'll probably get some letters suggesting that :-) Also frantically scrawled notes on scraps of paper by kids who can't spell "AWESOME" but just *had* to write to you as soon as I'd finished the last sentence. I haven't got the package together yet but it'll come over the summer.

I can't believe this is actually coming out in October! They'll go crazy for it. I'm so excited to think about them tackling all the long words by themselves! (heh - teacher-geekery) It feels a bit like pushing fledglings out of the nest and shouting after them "There's a loooooong drop! You'll learn to fly on the way!"

ZOMG! Stunning!!!!

Sooooooo Happy for you!!!!!!!!!! =)

Congratulations I look forward to reading the whole thing

I love it. And I've been so disappointed by so many book covers of late.

oh my word.


So. Much. Love.

That is made of total fabulous.

Oh hooray! That looks great!

Oh, wow. This looks...wow!

That's an awfully pretty cover. I like it better, even, than the first cover.


OH GOSHHHHH, SO EXCITED. I just read Silently and Very Fast yesterday and was just thinking to myself that I couldn't wait for the next installment of Fairyland to come out.

And the cover is absolutely gorgeous. ♥ That cooooooat...
