Return to Fairyopolis

As with the Fairyopolis book, this one has a very beautiful exterior. This is another journal-style book/scrapbook, consisting of artwork and various extras like letters, postcards, and little notes. The inside back cover contains a fairy pop-up that is quite beautiful in itself.

Definitely another must add for your fairy collection.

OK, but not as magical as the first one. Now that I've realized that these were made after Barker's death and only based on her original Flower Fairy books, we're hunting down the "real" books. Not that there's anything wrong with these--they are cute--but now I'm curious about the original books.

Fun, but not as interesting as the others of this type.
Yet another companion book to the "The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies" by Cicely Mary Barker.

Not as good as the first one.

*Picture Books* I thought this book was really cute and inventive. Definitely gives room for imagination! The illustrations and pop-ups were fun, and I enjoyed the extra texture to the pages. I haven't read the first of this book series (because I didn't know there was one), but I think this is a great book series for the imaginative child.

This one was on sale, and is quite nice. Not as interactive as the "ology" books, but neat all the same. It is very lovely, very Victorian-style, which I like. Also, the last popup is very cool. Not sure I would have paid full price, but happy to get the sale.

This is one of those lifting the flaps and little envelops with notes books that are too much fun for kids. You get to learn a lot about the different types of fairies here and they are hidden in the illustrations. Grades 4+

This book is a wonderful magical book of a girl who saw firys when she was little and is trying to find then again. It is not an ordinary book because it is the young ladys jurnal.

I have never not loved a Cicely Mary Barker fairy book. The wonder and magic brought to life in every page make this a marvel to experience. Fairyopolis definitely needed book two.

Una linda historia de fantasía que nos hace creer en las hadas. El libro es hermoso y está lleno de cosas secretas, cartas, mensajes, semillas, etc. Es mágico <3

Cicely Mary Barker was the illustrator who created the famous Flower Fairies; those ethereal smiling children with butterfly wings. As a child she was influenced by the works of the illustrator Kate Greenaway, whom she assiduously copied in her formative years. Her principal influence, however, was the artwork of the Pre-Raphaelites.
