What an adorable and wonderful book this was! Filled with descriptions, depictions, fun songs and poems - and even a recipe or two! - and of course an assortment of collected knowledge about the mystical and mysterious Fae, I'd recommend this book to any faerie lover. It's blithe and a good sit down book.

A definitive history of Faeries & the Faery World. They DO exist; if you've ever seen fireflies in a wooded glen in the evening's air you are watching the faeries. And, if you listen quietly you can hear them laughing s they fly around you.

Beautiful book about Faeries, with illustrations and cute inserts/secrets. Books seems to be written for children, but adults will enjoy it as well.
