The story is great, a lady watches her friends house and gardens over an extended time and slowly becomes aware of the fairies that live there.
Along with the fanciful fairy tales and beatiful art, there are real facts strewn through the book about things such as plants and butterflies.
The one potential problem with the book is that it is written in a tiny cursive that even I, an experienced nurse used to reading doctor's writing, have had problems with in a spot or two. My son could not read it at all even though he knows cursive. I had to read it aloud to him.
It is an excellent read aloud for good quality time, and it has high entertainment value and a bit of educational value as well.
I'd give it a 5 for content, but because of the writing - which does add to the artistic look of the book but detracts from a child's autonomy in enjoyment, I'm giving it a 4 instead.
please rate my review.
Yes this book is for adults too who love fairies. It's the most gorgeous book and interesting format I've seen. A pretty jewel on the cover starts you on your way through a fairy adventure with beautiful art work. There are many envelopes and special additions inside to explore. You will want to buy this for friends so they can share in the fun.
1. I presented this book to two birthdays girls at their 6th birthday party.
2. Shortly thereafter 25 little boys and girls forgot all the other toys and games on offer.
3. Shortly after that their father had to wade into a crowd of kindergarteners and rescue the book from 50 little cake-smeared hands all trying to explore its pages.
4. I heard no fewer than four kids ask their parents for their own copies of "purple fairy book."
The book is full of the whimsical fairy images and details of fairy encounters by the artist, Cicely Mary Barker. You will also find many surprises in this book, such as letters, postcards, fairy dust, and even a gift from the fairies at the end.
It seems that this book is aimed more for children, but is most definitely something an adult will enjoy, whether they are reading it to their child or reading it alone.
You or your child will be drawn into the wonders of this book. The fairies are child-like, dressed in leaves and flowers. There are many things hidden in this book, to find. The book brings another world to you or your child, and will no doubt, allow your child's imagination to grow, and yours to grow with it. I don't know if this would be the perfect gift for young children. Try to imagine what they would do to a pop-up book before you give this as a gift.
I hope authors and artists keep coming out with more books like this one. It brings a new excitement to reading and art, which is something that everyone can learn to appreciate.
