Format: Hardcover
Here is the third (and in my opinion)and the best adventure yet in the Sneezle series written by Terri Windling and with beautiful artwork by the doll maker Wendy Froud. In this new adventure, Sneezlewort Rowanberry Rootmuster Boggs the Seventh, who is a tree root faery, is on his way to tell the King Oberon news about these violent twig type looking creatures that have been attacking the creatures that live in the forest. But by accident, Sneezle is taken to a humans house instead! Sneezle is very frightened, he has never seen a human, much less been in their house. Sneezle needs to get out of this humans cottage but how? I will leave the rest for you to find out when you buy this book and read it but I will tell you that you are in for many nice and beautiful surprises because this book truly is a work of art and I would recomend you buy it.

You feel as though youre peaking into a magical world...cohorting with magical beings and caught in a realm that was lost to your childhood....

I have all the books by these two talented artists/writers...

They have a special place in my collection....they inspire, infuse imagination and you just cant put them down...takes hours to look at the images which jump right off the pages!

5 stars is just too little a review for these books...Winter Child and A MidSummers Night Fearie Tale are also among my favorites!!! You will love them too! ;)
