Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Little People reveals that the fairy folk are both enchanting and dangerous. This lavishly illustrated survey is packed with intriguing tales about all kinds of sprites, from fairy queens and brownies to lutins, mermaids, dwarves, and trolls.

Neil Philip has combed the lore of northern Europe for stories of human encounters with fairies, from Cherry of Zennor, who unwittingly worked in a fairy household, to Thomas the Rhymer, who spent seven years in fairyland and was given the gift of prophecy. Sumptuous images of the fairy world by William Blake and other classic artists are supplemented with newly commissioned drawings by Jacqueline Mair.
