About this title

Synopsis:

The beautiful illustrations bring the poetry to life in this beautiful gift book.

Readers will delight in this never-before published collection of poems from Laura Ingalls Wilder, the beloved author of The Little House on the Prairie:

Day and night, wherever we go, fairies are out dancing, painting, and creating joyous mischief for all who can see them.  Laura Ingalls Wilder shares her vision of the fanciful, ethereal, and mischievous world of the "Little People" in this first-ever collection of fairy poems she wrote in 1915.  Accompanied by whimsical illustrations, readers young and old will cherish this book for a lifetime.

Review:

"Down by the spring one morning/ Where the shadows still lay deep,/ I found in the heart of the flower/ A tiny fairy asleep," rhymes Laura Ingalls Wilder in "The Fairy Dew Drop." Wilder, best known for the Little House series that chronicles her childhood as a pioneer girl, wrote poetry, too, and--surprise!--this practical, hard-working woman also believed in fairies. Her fairy poems, first published in a San Francisco newspaper, have now been collected in this small, colorful volume, brimming with Richard Hull's whimsical paintings of various kinds of fairies and their fanciful world of flowers and insects. The book begins with an introduction by Stephen W. Hines, who edited Wilder's long-forgotten newspaper columns in Little House in the Ozarks. Wilder fans will also find one of her 1916 essays, "Fairies Still Appear to Those with Seeing Eyes." A charming choice for both fans of fairies and admirers of the Little House books.
