If you BELIEVE...

Featuring 17 of Sydney's popular places of interest and showing the hidden secrets within, where Fairy sightings (yes the small winged variety:) have been observed, from the Sydney Opera House at Bennelong Point in Sydney Harbour, to Bondi Road on Sydney's famous Bondi Beach in the East, and many popular destinations between.
With beautifully written poems by Kristine Valenzuela about each place, from the point of view of the Fairies who live and play in these Sydney destinations, and with each and every page beautifully illustrated with watercolour artwork by co-author and illustrator Matt Green.
This is a lovely little book to keep on the coffee table to pick up and peruse again and again.
Magic! 5★s
Many thanks to Kristine Valenzuela and Matt Green for gifting me a signed copy at the 2014 Sydney Book Expo .
