Publisher Comments:

THIS WHIMSICAL AND charming collection of stories and poems was first published in 1951. Now a new generation of fairy fans can search for lost merbabies, bargain with pixies, and frolic under the moon with Jane Werners fantastic selection of “wee folk” tales, masterfully illustrated by Garth Williams.

About the Author

Jane Werner had a long and prolific association with Golden Books. Writing under a dozen different names, she was the author and/or editor of more than 70 books.

Garth Williams was a renowned childrens book illustrator. His work is easily recognizable in the classic Golden Books favorites The Sailor Dog, The Friendly Book, Mister Dog, and The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse.

Growing up in the 50s, this was a book my sister and I enjoyed thoroughly. The stories are charming, the poetry delightful, and the illustrations by Garth Williams unforgetable. Our shared copy has traveled from Portland to Anchorage and is held together with love and with tape. My sister called to let me know that it has been reissued so we can each have our own copy to share with friends, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. What a thrill it is to once again have this book!
