This week's choice is -


The Boy Who Lost Fairyland (Fairyland #4) - Catherynne M Valente
ISBN - 9781250023490
Publisher - Feiwel & Friends
Expected release date - March 3rd 2015

When a young troll named Hawthorn is stolen from Fairyland by the Golden Wind, he becomes a changeling – a human boy -- in the strange city of Chicago, a place no less bizarre and magical than Fairyland when seen through trollish eyes. Left with a human family, Hawthorn struggles with his troll nature and his changeling fate. But when he turns twelve, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland much changed from the one he remembers. Hawthorn finds himself at the center of a changeling revolution--until he comes face to face with a beautiful young Scientiste with a very big, very red assistant.

Time magazine has praised Catherynne M. Valente's Fairyland books as "one of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century." In this fourth installment of her saga, Valente 's wisdom and wit will charm readers of all ages. - Goodreads

  4. Catherynne M. Valente is an author I've been wanting to read for so long...I think I've had her Orphan Tales sitting on my shelf for ages! This series for younger readers has grabbed my attention too, it's been getting so many positive reviews!
