At a market, a fairy purchases riches found in nature. Then releases them for their own good or the good of others. A different season plays out with each stanza of Fyleman’s verse. Visually exquisite, this is a story to be savored by both parents and children, and is a great book to be shared in preschool story time. 

"The artist has created a fairy-world of beauty with animals, plants, reptiles and small details making each double-page spread a breathtaking scene. . . luminous." —Publishers Weekly

"What makes this picture book exceptional are the exquisite illustrations." —School Library Journal

About the Author:

Rose Fyleman was an English writer and poet. Fyleman’s best known for her writings about whimsical fairies which were aimed at children of all ages. Her poem There are fairies at the bottom of our garden was set to music by Liza Lehmann and was received with great acclaim and adoration. Her Christmas carol Lift your hidden faces, was included in the hymnal Songs of Praise, as well as in the Hutterian Brotherhood's Songs of Light.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3 A gentle fairy purchases nature's treasures but keeps them for her own pleasure only briefly before she releases them or gives them away. The four stanzas of Fyleman's verse, originally published in 1918, are pleasant but not particularly memorable in themselves. What makes this picture book exceptional are the exquisite illustrations. The dainty fairy with butterfly wings moves gracefully among nature's small creatures. Using a different season as the backdrop for each short narrative stanza, Henterly creates a panorama of the year. Rich colors and exquisite detail help children see the natural beauty that surrounds them. Children and adults will savor such touches as the fairy's wasp nest letter holder and her caterpillar boots. This is a book for unhurried gazing and quiet sharing.
