This whimsical book is an enlightening introduction into the fairy realm. Opening up this world to the reader, it explores fairies from all around the globe and from all different cultures. There is a focus on those from Europe and the British Isles because of the ancient and elaborate beliefs in fairies in this part of the world. The material is thoroughly researched and factual but presented in a light and fanciful way so as to be in harmony with fairy nature - which requires having a sense of humour The book offers a traditional folk tale for each fairy featured, giving access to both their background and psyche. Some of the fairies are more general types rather than individuals but a few, such as Puck and Rumplestiltskin, are quite well-known figures so that you are able to identify with some specific fairy characters The World of the Fairies is more than just an interpretation of the fairy characters, including as it does the traditional folk tales written in oral, storytelling style. Readers can therefore refer to the book as a source of fairy tales for reading and telling.
