A must for believers!

  • Sep 25, 2001
I purchased this book long, long ago, and I now have a child who is very interested in faeries. So it was bought down from the bookshelf, the dust blown off it, and we settled down for a read. I had forgotten what a gem this book is.

The illustrations alone are worth the purchase price. If you are interested in fine art, let alone book illustrations, you will apreciate this book. The text is well written and amusing, with a great deal of attention to the smaller details of the small people's lives. And let us not forget the less than nice faeries - the bad faeries who we think are best forgotten. They also get a slice of the action. It is sometimes pleasant to have that little shiver of frightening childhood memories.

It is a delightful book. Its not strictly a children's book but you will be very fondly remembered by any child you present this to as a gift. Its not strictly an adult book either, but hey, let's live a little! Leave it on your coffee table and I guarantee everyone will pick it up. Maybe it has its own little bit of magic.
