Boys and girls will be spellbound as they explore the origins and the legends of fairies in this spectacularly beautiful volume. Lavish illustrations show the fairies of meadows and fields, of lakes and rivers, and of air and wind. Here too are magical depictions of tree fairies, house fairies, ocean and sea fairies, all of them shown in their traditional, richly illustrated environments. An enchanting picture book, A Field Guide to Fairies presents a series of beautiful full-color spreads, each bewitching illustration captioned with a description of its fairy's origins in legendry and its relationship to nature. Among these hauntingly beautiful color depictions of fairies are three impressive double-page pop-up scenes. The book's heavy board front cover is die-cut to reveal the enchanting fairy illustration that adorns the title page.
