About the Author

HOW TO SPOT A TREE FAIRY
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.

She was enchanted from the word- go. Brought back memories as she was really into fairies as a child and had seen Cicely Barkers illustrations as a child. This book has complex pop-up pages.. no one does that anymore. This is just great.
Not very many books can get my Mom's eyes wet.
But this book was the highlight. It is like a coffee table book, that size and that quality. The pages are pop-ups done to perfection and simply beautiful. It will be a delight for her to revisit this gift for years to come and is definitely a keepsake item to remind her of this birthday even when she grows old. Really delightful.
The Forest Floor has a lovly 3D tree trunk`with various fairies flying about the mushrooms with signs that read, '"Fairy steps are crafted from twigs."'Can you see a trail of fairy dust?"and "A tiny lamp lights the way?"
"in the Garden" depicts a beautiful 3D pop-up flower garden complete with a hidden fairy or two! Cicely Barker says,"On summer days, some fairies hang their washing out to dry on the webs of friendly spiders. Look out for glistening petals hanging from webs.
"By the Wayside"shows hedgerows as places fairies hide in and are you looking at a butterfly or a fairy? You never know? Fairies and butterflys intermingle so you're always on the alert!
Finnaly, "The Marsh" shows the fairy king and queen hidden in the marsh reeds! And one fairy holds onto a cat tail! All these pop-ups have exquisit detail with beautiful colour! It's the most lavish pop-up book to date! Highly Recommended!!
