Publisher's Summary

September has been crowned queen of Fairyland, but the kingdom is in chaos. The magic of a dodo egg has brought every king, queen, and marquess of Fairyland back to life, all with claims to the throne and their own plots and histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn't want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarchical Marathon, in which every would-be ruler will chase the Stoat of Arms across the nation, and the first to seize the poor beast will be crowned. Caught up in the madness are September's parents, who have crossed the universe to find their daughter.

absolutely delightful

A wonderful conclusion to an incredible series. listening to these books is pure joy. I think I actually like listening to them more than reading them. the author's storytelling and imagination combined with her voices is unmatched. a must listen collection.

perfect ending to this series

I read this book before I listened to it, so I already knew that I would love the story. Catherynne Valente's narration makes this book even better. I think it's perfect.

I adored this

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are many wonderful characters in this series, but I'd have to say that my favorite is Blunderbuss the Combat Wombat. She's a hoot and very tough in an appropriate children's book way.

Any additional comments?

I wasn't sure that I was going to finish this series, which would have been tragic because this book and The Boy Who Lost Fairyland are, in my opinion, the best. There are no loose ends, except for those that imply the adventure lives on. Everything wraps up in ways that both pleased and surprised me.

Valente has a clever way with words and such a delightful imagination. This series is unlike anything I've read before and given how much I read, that's saying quite a bit.

we say goodbye to the girl in Fairyland

Any additional comments?

it is not my favorite series to be honest, but i did enjoy it. the writing isn't as confusing as the third book and readers of young age shouldn't have trouble following the story. Not to be rude toward the Author or anything but i wish she would stop narrating her books.

although it is the final book of the series i got a feeling M. Valente will pick it up again one day with new heroine, until then, we says our goodbyes to the girl who brought us to Fairyland.

Fantastic ending to a terrific series

I have loved every moment of the Fairyland saga and this final installment wraps up all the loose ends and ties them into a lovely yarn animal. Listening to the author read her own work brings a sly joy to the story.

Immerse yourself in myth!

Where does The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Once I'd heard the first book, I immediately bought the rest and immersed myself in this world for a week!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home?

There are too many to list. Every scene's a gem.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to name!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did in fact.

Any additional comments?

You need this series in your life. Haunting, tender, lyrical and emotionally satisfying all at once.
