Ninja kitten is like the unexpected guest that suddenly stops by to visit, expect in my case, she is a “virtual” visitor so it doesn’t matter that my house may be a bit untidy when she pops in to my blog. Ninja kitten randomly pops in and leaves me a comment suggesting a book to read. She has not let me down yet! She most recently suggested that I read The girl who circumnavigated fairyland in a ship of her own making – this title definitely lives up to all the hype in the reviews. Like other reviewers have already said, the book is for kids and adults alike (it is officially a kids book) and the author’s story could be compared to a mix between the Wizard of Oz & Alice and Wonderland. The book is utterly fantastic. I adored it. And I have a “P.S.” edition of sorts and I swooned for the interview with the author as I could relate to many of her life experiences. And “The girl who…” is just part 1 in a series of probably 2 or 3 more books. #2, The girl who fell beneath fairyland and led the revels there, is scheduled to be released on October 2! However, if you are in the mood for something a bit more adult and a bit darker at times (although still without any explicit language or inappropriate scenes) try the author’s two part series The orphan’s tales: In the night garden and The orphan’s tales: In the cities of coin and spice – I’ve read both and they are fantastic. And if you are wondering what I’m reading next…… The Princess Bride.
