Good for the 4 year old girls. Nice bit of history included.

The Brothers Grimm have written about them and in 1917, two girls from England even claimed to take pictures of them. This book poses the question, “Do you believe in fairies?”, but leaves the answer for you to decide.

Recounting the tale of Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright this book questions whether fairies are real. I have a feeling that “real” fairy fans aren’t going to like this book.
A non-fiction reader for all those little girls who LOVE the Rainbow Fairy books. Also a very nice introduction to the famous Cottingley fairy photographs.
A nonfiction reader! Fantastic!
