I have a love of Fairies and one day while searching for all things Fairy on the internet, I discovered Fairy Houses; little dwellings for your yard and gardens for your family fairies to reside in. Of course I was immediately taken with the little homes constructed of materials found in nature; I wanted some and bad. That's when I discovered most of the ones I enjoyed that were already built cost about $200 - $300... Forget that!

Then one day I was searching on Amazon and discovered this book, Fairy Houses...Everywhere. This charming little picture book contains over 50 different colorful examples of hand made fairy homes. There is very little text, just brief introductions to pictures here and there. The pictures themselves are enchanting. These little homes are so inviting any fairy would be happy to reside in one.

There are houses built into trees, on the beach, in the water, snow and even in pumpkins and gourds. Some of the houses are intricate and have a lot of detail; others are wonderfully uncomplicated, but still appealing. There is a home for every season and every yard.

When this book arrived my 4 yr old son and I sat down to look through it. We made a list of features we liked and what we'd want our fairy house to look like. So far we have decided our house needs a swing, a ladder, some fairy boats and furniture made of sea shells. Armed with a large bucket, my son and I went for a walk last night to gather the first pieces of nature to use to build our fairy house together.

I admit a good portion of my family members think I have lost my mind, but my son and I are very excited about our project.

My daughter has always been interested in fairy houses since we first watched Kristen's Fairy House. They are delightful little creations that she would spend hours making in the back yard, or we would go on walks and find natural things for her to use in her designs. She is now 8, and still very much into creating unique homes for the fairies. I feel so lucky to see her whimiscal artistic side bloom. She is even creating seasonal fairy house centerpieces for us to decorate our home with. I will always treasure these times with her, and the magical memories that we are making. Sorry if I am long winded. Getting to the point, this book has GORGEOUS photographs of all kinds of fairy houses, in all seasons. It is an inspiration to behold. My daughter and I love to look at the pictures over and over. The authors brought up a really nice fundraiser that they started by having everyone they knew in their neighborhood make fairy houses. What an interesting and unusual idea! Next house tour to raise money for school, can be fairy houses! This book offers the person that would like to get started making houses, lots of ideas, or is a sweet read for the person that just wants to appreciate little bits of beauty. A nice addition to Kristen's Fairy House Video/DVD, and sweet memories for family times together.

I found this book to be inspiring when it came to the beautiful fairy houses depicted, but I have to agree with another reviewer, in that the photo quality is quite poor. The photo quality really takes away from the book and the book design is unappealing. There are annoying feathered borders on photos on graded colour backgrounds which is really distracting to the eye. It looks like the photographer used a macro lens with improper settings or without a tripod, either way most closeup photos are out of focus likely from using a shutter speed too low. I recommend a new edition with a different layout and better photography....then it would be spectacular. Overall, I was disappointed and hope they put out a better edition....this book could be a real gem.

The idea behind the book, photographs of adorable houses built for fairies out of natural materials, is wonderful, but I found that the pictures were too small for my daughter to get too excited about. In future editions, I hope the authors/publisher will consider enlarging the photos and adding more text.

This book is Fabulous! It took me back to my childhood when I used to build weird little things outdoors using sticks, stones, feathers and anything else I could find. Any creative child will love this book and be able to use it a aspring board to invent stories of their own, or set out to make their own fairy houses in the garden. This is not a "look at once" time book, this is a KEEPER. I should mention that there are no words in this book besides the headings such as "Woodland Fairy Houses", "Beach Fairy Houses", ect.
