In 1917 two young girls in England not only reported an encounter with fairies, but actually photographed the supposed real fairies. They created a media frenzy in their country, and even attracted the attention of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes series, who believed their story and wrote a book about it.
In addition to this intriguing story, Redmond's book is filled with folklore of all sorts of magical little beings who have interacted with people throughout history. The book actually makes the reader want to do research on the history of fairies, imps, sprites, gnomes, and other fascinating tales of mystical beings.
What kid would not want to read a story about two young girls who managed to have the name of their home town changed to Fairyand, no less, and who fooled their entire country with their tales of real live fairies?
Redmond's book charms, captivates, and entertains until the very last page! It would definitely make a great present for a young reader and as an adult, I found it absolutely engaging and enchanting myself.
