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.

Michael Hague is renowned as the illustrator of many children's classics, including editions of The Wizard Of Oz, Peter Pan, The Hobbit, and The Velveteen Rabbit, as well as The Book Of Dragons and The Book Of Pirates. He lives with his wife, Kathleen, a frequent collaborator, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.From Booklist:
Gr. 3-6. Fairies come alive in stories, songs, and poetry. Only Thumbelina will be familiar to most readers; there is an excerpt from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens , but this title is different from the more familiar tale. The pieces, some of which feature fairies who are more crotchety than fey, have an old-fashioned air, and Hague's lush, highly detailed artwork enhances the feeling. The most beautiful spreads are the ones in color, but even the line drawings are so intricate they deserve more than one look. Notes about the eight pieces will be very interesting for children wanting a bit of knowledge with their whimsy. Ilene Cooper
