Brandon Royal, December 15, 2010 (view all comments by Brandon Royal)
Susanne Alexander-Heaton's book is a wonderfully uplifting and brilliantly illustrated work of art. Each left-hand page adorns a description of a fairy and his or her message scripted as a poem. These are tips or lessons for how we can better understand ourselves, more fully bond with others, and live in closer harmony with mother nature. Each right-hand page contains an inspiring pictorial of the fairy.

The journey from A to Z celebrates a fairy whose name starts with that letter of the alphabet. Here are but two entries that speak to me (conspicuously absent are the nice script and lavish images that appear in the real book):

***
"H" is for Hillaria:

Hillaria is the happiest fairy you will ever meet,
As she laughs so much she barely has time to eat!
It shocked her that when some humans grow old,
Their laughter decreases over a full tenfold.

Hillaria lovingly says:

"Don't lose the ability to laugh and to play,
Learn to laugh like me more than ten times a day.
Have you taken the time to laugh at all today?
If not, please do and you'll feel better right away!"

"U" is for Uniqueuella

Uniqueuella is a fairy that is very rare to be found,
As he flies with the unicorns way above the ground.
Instead of seeing himself as different or strange,
He embraces who he is and refuses to change.

Uniqueuella's message:

"If people tell you that you just don't belong,
Just say thanks, and go on singing your own song.
You are magical, beautiful, mystical and bright,
So shine out strongly with your unending light."
