The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland by Catherynne M. Valente

‘September is a twelve-year-old girl from Omaha. With her dad fighting a faraway war, and her mum always out at work, she is lonely, stuck in a rut and starved of adventure. So when a Green Wind arrives at her window and invites her to Fairyland she accepts in a flash (mightn’t you?). But Fairyland is in crisis, crushed by the iron rule of the villainous Marquess – and September holds the key to restoring order. With a book-loving dragon and a mysterious boy named Saturday by her side, she sets out on a thrilling quest to Fix Things. But time is short, and time is ticking, and every story must have an ending. Can September save Fairyland? Can she even save herself?’ 
This book is wonderful, beautifully written with extremely charming characters. A colourful and brightly descriptive fantasy which draws you in and keeps you there. A truly gorgeous read with two equally joyous sequels to follow. A highly recommended read for people of ALL ages!
