Such imagination and intuition went into making this book. The faerie cards by the same illustrator are also incredible!
Yet to be fair this is an excellent children's book and I am talking young elementary school children. The writing is simplistic and cute , perfect appeal for kindergarten through 2and grade. The art work from Brian Froud as awesome as always, and maybe that alone is worth the price of the book. There are some excellent portal drawings which if you meditate on them serious wizard or witch you just might be able to enter the realm of the faeries.
Now the purchase is not a total loss, as you do learn a few things about being able to see faeries. First off always speak in rhymes, faeries love rhymes. The next thing you need to know is that there are no rules when it comes to seeing faeries. The third is thing is slow down and take the time to see faeries, they are everywhere but we are just too rushed to noticed.
The faeries are there, located in those liminal spaces and times. Perhaps at sunset and sunrise trooping to and fro. Check beneath the and in between the leave maybe they are hiding there. Let us not forget that their world occupies the same space as ours. They are tricky little fellows.
The Glyph of the Sidhe, which presented itself in Matthew's "The Sidhe" book is also present on many places in this one, making it an even greater delight. I think this book serves as a meditation tool in many ways, to tap into the worlds through the images, the keys.
This is more than a Faery book, more than an art or poetry book, more than a book!
Will it help you see the fae? Maybe. Having already seen faeries, I am not a good test subject for that aspect of the book, but I can see that the faeries were very helpful in creating it!
