Publisher Comments:

Following in the footsteps of Trolls, Brian and Wendy Froud lead readers deep into the world of faeries. Humans throughout history have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores that complex relationship and the liminal state between the human and faery world where interaction occurs.

In Brian Froudandrsquo;s Faeriesandrsquo; Tales, readers encounter individual faeries, each with a story to uncover, as told by the faeries themselves. Many of the stories are familiar to humans, but the andldquo;trueandrdquo; story is told by the faeries. Similar to the Trolls fragments, the faeriesandrsquo; tales are coupled with portraits and interspersed with drawings and studies of the mysterious and enchanting folk who travel back and forth between the human world and theirs.

Synopsis:

Lady Angelica Cottington returns in this mysterious, hilarious sequel to Froud's huge international hit. In this quirky and seductive new volume, 15-year-old Angelica stumbles on an annotated photo album that reveals fairy enchantments, wanton romance, and bawdy trysts.

This album was delightfully wicked, impishly delightful, a little on the gross side at times, but overall a fantastic, imaginative, original, and fascinating look at fairies. Once again, Brian Froud's artwork is superbly displayed.
