The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it's been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she's about to embark on one to find the other. But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she'll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. It will take all of Alice's wits (and every limb she's got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself-and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss. ★ "A fast-paced, funny, and richly imaginative story that embraces and celebrates individuality." -Publishers Weekly, starred review ★ "Rich, luscious, clever prose." -Kirkus, starred reviewFrom the Hardcover edition.
