About the Author

I have discovered, to my occasional discomfort, that the more mischievous treetop fairies find it amusing to rain acorns, nuts and berries down upon the heads of unsuspecting humans! My advice: keep your wits about you and wear a sturdy hat during woodland walks.
Use your ears as well as your eyes. On windy days the fairies love to perch at the end of branches, enjoying the sensation of the wind blowing all around them. If you listen carefully you might hear their tinkling laughs.
If you are walking by a tree, you may hear a sudden twittering of birds. This could be a warning signal to let the fairies know of your presence. Fairies do not like humans venturing too close to their homes, and their feathered friends know to alert them if we are nearby.

It was just so gorgeous and my 4yr old daughter loves fairies so much. She even made a fairy farm in our yard after a nature walk. I just HAD to order it.
It has been several months now (about 6 mths) and surprisingly this thing is in perfect condition still. The kids all adore it. We put it in a special spot and the kids get all excited and snuggle in on the sofa with me when I get it out.
It is gorgeous and we all admire and cherish it in our family.
This is VERY much worth buying!
I was fortunate to see this one in a book store, then I ordered it online for a cheaper price. I'll definitely look for more books by Cicely Mary Barker. Her pop-up books equal Robert Sabuda's.
My mother-in-law bought this as a gift for my baby and from about 18 months onward, my little girl loved this book so much. I had to read it to her every night and of course after six months of her tugging at all the pop up pages, there's wear and tear so I ordered her another one.
It's quite literally the most stunning pop up book I have every seen and there are fairies hidden throughout the book - and my little girl hunts for them. It's wonderful interaction for babies and parents.
My daughter enjoyed this book from 18months to 3.5 years -- literally her favorite book that I had to bring out every night.
TEACHES TO SEARCH:
This book has tons of pop up pages (mostely green) - with fairies hidden in different forest settings (tree tops, meadows, flower beds, wayside, forest floor etc). The goal is to help your child look careful for fairies that might be hidden among the leaves. It teaches them to look carefully so that when you say, "can you get X from the refrigerator" from your toddler, they don't say, "I can't find it." even if it's laying right in front of them. This is a great tool for that.
TEACHES CAUTIONARY TALE:
My daughter loves mushrooms and this book has its fair share of pictures of toadstools so we spent quite a bit of time instructing how toadstools come from the ground and mushrooms come from the refrigerator and how toadstools are yucky. We have so much fun with this book. She'll find a picture of a toadstool and will say, "that's a toadstool, yuck, yuck. weeeeee doooooooon't touch those!" In that shrill little girl voice - it's wonderful.
For the longest times when we walked around the neighborbhood, my little girl kept looking for fairies in every bush or little hole in the ground. It's great. So much joy from a child. Get this book - it's quite literally amazing - you won't regret it.
The video review posted by another reviewer has illustrated the beauty of this book, but the beauty is not just visual. The text enhances the visuals as it gives basic yet useful information about fairies and their habitats. And of course, the last page contains a delightful surprise! Highly recommended for fairy lovers and pop-up enthusiasts of all ages!
