The acclaimed Marigold series in one volume. “A mixture of fantasy, romance, comedy, and coming-of-age . . . and it’s all great fun.”—School Library Journal Once upon a Marigold, a fairy tale turned upside down, inside out, and completely over the top! Join Christian and Marigold through their one-of-a-kind adventures in this trilogy of tales that’s part comedy, part love story, part everything-but-the-kitchen-sink. With echoes of William Goldman’s modern classic The Princess Bride, Jean Ferris’s hilarious parody of “Once upon a time . . .” overflows with oddball characters and sage observations to create a happily-ever-after that’s just the beginning. Once Upon a Marigold was named an ALA Notable Children’s Book, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and a New York Public Library 100 Books for Reading and Sharing title. Praise for the Marigold series “In a gratifying fantasy that contains elements of classic fairy tales, Ferris breathes new life into archetypal characters by adding unexpected and often humorous dimensions to their personalities.”—Publishers Weekly “Cold indeed is the heart not made warm by this bubbly fairy-tale romance.”—Kirkus Reviews “Ferris leisurely combines elements of adventure, fantasy, romance, and humor.”—Booklist “An upbeat fairy-tale adventure.”—School Library Journal

The trilogy finale! “A tale well-stocked with broadly drawn characters and fairy-tale conventions knocked slightly askew . . . A delicious confection.”—Kirkus Reviews Princess Poppy, the bouncing baby daughter of Queen Marigold and King Christian of Zandelphia-Beaurivage, is in terrible danger. The kingdom’s former torturer-in-chief and poisoner-in-chief have joined forces to kidnap the baby as an act of revenge for their exile! Can a ragtag parade of rescuers—including the king and queen, the evil kidnappers’ mortified children, five dogs, a white elephant, and a washed-up wizard—save Princess Poppy in time? “An upbeat fairy-tale adventure, this final installment in the trilogy is sure to entertain fans of the first two books . . . The story is filled with humor, both witty and ridiculous.”—School Library Journal “Ferris leisurely combines elements of adventure, fantasy, romance, and humor.”—Booklist

Exploring the world is easy today, all one needs is the internet. Getting to know the ground beneath one's feet is quite another story. I began to look for the island on which I live, and, it wasn't there. So began my quest. Why was it difficult to read the landscape? All its past had been viewed from ships at sea, or from libraries in lands I had never been to.All its history was hearsay and all its storytellers were dead. I was an alchemist at the edge of discovery. Andheri is where I stood, and Andheri is geology on speed. Hills explode, rocks shudder and slide, rivers slouch in culverts, the sea is dismissed, and the land sweats people at every pore. Andheri is protean with mad caprice. A lake in the industrial district memorializes lost fields, a milestone marks a vanished road, a blind alley recalls a king, and our memorials are jailed in wire-mesh with dire warnings in three languages. We're going underground, we're up in the air, we'll do the metro wriggle, the skywalk or trapeze, we'll do the right green thing on a prayer and a concrete wing, we'll flatten the hills, push back the sea, and we'll make even more room for the builder and me. The idea of Andheri is shaped from the land it is built upon. Who will uncover that for me? How do you find something hidden in plain sight? Begin in a village named for an epidemic, witness an exorcism, and enter a labyrinth. Emerge with a mirage and meet a curious cartographer. Journey 60 million years with a turtle and a frog. Then, finally, find Gilbert Hill. Once Upon A Hill is a plea from Kalpish Ratna to their city of Bombay. Gilbert Hill is where our past and future are gathered. Shall we revere this still point, or as seems inexorable, destroy it with our dance ?
