Publisher Comments:

In folklore, fairies have lived tantalizingly close to humans for centuries. Now, you can travel through the lands of fairies, goblins, brownies, and elves in this rich and varied collection of stories and poems. Renowned fantasy illustrator Michael Hague combines mesmerizing full–color and black–and–white artwork with the classic works of J. M. Barrie, Hans Christian Andersen, Christina Rossetti, and others to bring the magical world of fairies vividly to life.

Ages 7+

In his illustrations for this rich and varied collection, a companion to "The book of Dragons", one of America's most beloved painters of fantasy illustrates an excerpt from James Barrie's "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens", Hans Christian Andersen's "Thumbelina", and Christina Rossetti's "Goblin Market". Full color and b&w images.
