Fans of Catherynne M. Valente have a lot to be excited for this spring. Her latest novel, Deathless, just hit shelves this week and her next work, an illustrated young adult book titled The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, comes out from Fiewel & Friends on May 10th. Take a look at the sytlized book trailer above for a great representation of what the book entails.
