* WomanInBlack: The Marquess doesn't dress all in black, but her hat--which is a very fine hat--is also a very black hat and gives off this effect.

* TheFairFolk: Interestingly lacking from Fairyland, though there are a few. "Fairies" as a species proper are in short supply in Fairyland, while witches, spriggans, trolls, and all other creatures abound. In the third book we learn a bit more of Fairyland's history, including that Fairies were not above stealing a Yeti's paw and using its time-bending powers to their benefit, even as a weapon that only they (immortal) could survive.

September, terribly bored of her mundane life in Omaha, is delighted when she's visited by the Green Wind and the Leopard of Little Breezes, who spirit her away to Fairyland. There, she takes on a quest for a witch to take her magical spoon back from the terrible Marquess, ruler of Fairyland. She gains great friends and allies in A-Through-L, a half-wyvern half-library crossbreed, a blue marid named Saturday, and many other residents of the land, both friendly and dangerous.

* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: In the final book, one of the participants in the competition to decide the next King of Fairyland is Thrum, the [[TyrannosaurusRex Rex Tyrannosaur]]. Possibly a GeniusBonus, as "Tyrannosaurus Rex" translates to "tyrant lizard kind" in Latin.

* LegacyCharacter: The Winds operate by this principle, though how their replacements are chosen vary from Wind to Wind. To succeed the Blue Wind one must steal something of theirs, to succeed the Red Wind one must defeat them in single combat, and to succeed the Green Wind [[spoiler:one must save their life]].

The book has spawned a series, which is projected for five books in all. A sequel called ''The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There'' was published in October 2012. A second sequel ''The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two'' was published in October 2013, and a third, ''The Boy Who Lost Fairyland,'' in March of 2015. A prequel, ''The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland—For a Little While'', tells the story of the young girl who became Fairyland's Queen Mallow (and is full of Major {{Spoiler}}s for the first book, so only read it after that one). The final book, ''The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All The Way Home,'' has a projected release date of March 2016.

* ThresholdGuardians: The Sibyl in the second book guards the way to Fairyland-Below. However as September knows what she needs to accomplish instead of going on a grand adventure to prove something, Slant ushers September right on through.

* TwistEnding: And a really good one. [[spoiler: It turns out that the Marquess wants September to lock the portal which connects the human world to Fairyland, supposedly so that no child can get lost again. To persuade September, she shows her a watch with September's name on it, which determines the time she stays in Fairyland. Then it turns out that it's the Marquess's watch, whose true name is Maud Elizabeth Smythe, and that it's she who doesn't want to return or let any other child come. Then she reveals her backstory, which is really interesting and touching.]]
