The reign of Basil II (976-1025), the longest of any Byzantine emperor, has long been considered as a 'golden age', in which his greatest achievement was the annexation of Bulgaria. This, we have been told, was achieved through a long and bloody war of attrition which won Basil the grisly epithet Voulgartoktonos, 'the Bulgar-slayer'.

This is another wonderful addition to Barker's Flower Fairies series. I feel like this one has some of the most beautiful artwork and the most enchanting poems. It was a really really quick read but I loved it no less.

My nan helped to teach me to read with these books. Each night I stayed over we would read together and that made these little books very special to me.

Trees was a good collection. I liked this more that little bit more because I knew the trees involved in the poems, whereas i didn't really know any of the flowers.

I just wished that Barker would have considered doing a story. The poems were beautiful, but a story conbining the fairies would have been magical!
De tekeningen van de 'flower fairies' kende ik al, maar wist niet dat er ook versjes bij hoorden. Leuk boekje om even door te bladeren.
This little book is so gorgeous! The drawings are so fine and beautiful.
I love the poems inside and my favourite poem is Willow .
Drawing are great! and the poems along with them are fun to read! cute little book

Such an adorable little book. I couldn't help but smiling as I read.
This is a very sweet book of poems and beautiful illustrations.
Wonderful, whimsical world of Cicely Mary Barker.

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.
