A glorious romp, this is an extraordinary work of fantasy for adults or children. Quite by accident, September has been crowned as Queen of Fairyland, but inherits a Kingdom in chaos. The magic of a dodo's egg has brought every King, Queen or Marquess of Fairyland back to life, each with a fair and good claim to the throne, their own schemes and plots and horrible, hilarious, hungry 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 outlandish would-be ruler will chase the Stoat of Arms across the whole nation. The first to seize the poor beast will seize the crown. Caught up in the madness are the changelings Hawthorn and Tamburlaine, the combat wombat Blunderbuss, the gramophone Scratch, the Green Wind and September's parents, who have crossed the Universe to find their daughter. 308pp in illustrated softback, much praised by Neil Gaiman.
