A Field Guide to Fairies: Explore the Secret World of the Fairy Realm

A Field Guide to Fairies: Explore the Secret World of the Fairy Realm Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boys and girls will be spellbound as they explore the origins and the legends of fairies in this spectacularly beautiful volume. Lavish illustrations show the fairies of meadows and fields, of lakes and rivers, and of air and wind. Here too are magical depictions of tree fairies, house fairies, ocean and sea fairies, all of them shown in their traditional, richly illustrated environments. An enchanting picture book, A Field Guide to Fairies presents a series of beautiful full-color spreads, each bewitching illustration captioned with a description of its fairy's origins in legendry and its relationship to nature. Among these hauntingly beautiful color depictions of fairies are three impressive double-page pop-up scenes. The book's heavy board front cover is die-cut to reveal the enchanting fairy illustration that adorns the title page.

Synopsis:

There is probably a fairy very close to you right now--in the raindrop on the window, within that shaft of sunlight, or beneath those moving leaves. Discover all the fairies' secret hiding places in this enchanting guide to fairy lore from around the world. Then you will know where to look next time you notice a strange perfume or hear the tinkle of tiny bells.
