From Midwest Book Review - Children's Bookwatch: June 2009
A Book of Fairies is a fantastic children's picturebook that presents a fascinating listing of imaginary facts about imaginary creatures. From the nature of Fairyland, to finding fairies, the tasks of fairies, fairy secrets and language, fairy medicine, and more, A Book of Fairies is a fun source of mystical speculation. The beautiful color illustrations perfectly complement the thoughtful text. A Book of Fairies is sure to bring joy not only to young readers, but also to adults who still believe in fairies! "Of all the earth fairies, flower fairies are around us the most. Flower fairies are the ones skipping through the ivy, or tending your vegetable patch - yet they can be awful hard to spot. They make their clothing from leaves and colorful flower petals, so they blend right into the gardens where they play."
