After a god-like spirit punishes a town for flying by making it perpetually live out its days in the month of February, children go missing and adults fall into deep depression, but a small contingent of townsfolk fight back, waging war on February, in a story optioned by film director Spike Jonze. Reprint.
Shane Jones's ethereal debut novel revels in the benefits of ballooning and documents the detriments of the calendar's shortest month, as a group of idyllic, aerial villagers finds themselves permanently grounded by a nefarious spirit who bans all forms of flight and forces them to endure the dim, frozen rigors of an incessant February. Like THE LITTLE PRINCE, Jones's airy tale of the perils and profits of living a life dictated by dreams is that rare book which can be absorbed and appreciated by readers of all ages.
