Synopsis: In fairy tales, when three brothers or sisters set out on a quest, usually only the youngest one is brave and clever enough to finish it.” This is one of the insights in this charming picture book that introduces young readers to magic and enchantment. Written by renowned folklorist Rosalind Kerven, the book draws on traditional folk tales from Ireland, Africa, China, the Middle East, Native America, and other regions. It’s all here in shimmering illustrations by Wayne Anderson: magic-makers; shape-shifters; important spells, wishes, and charms; magical travel; secret worlds; bewitchery; and more.

About the Author: Rosalind Kerven's children's novel The Woman Who Went to Fairyland was shortlisted for the 1993 Children's Book Award, The Sea is Singing was chosen as a T.E.S. Book of the Year and dramatised for BBC Radio, and Who Ever heard of a Vegetarian Fox? was shortlisted for the 1989 Children's Book. Her books for Frances include a retelling of The Enchanted Forest and The Fairy-Spotter's Handbook. Wayne Anderson has illustrated over 20 books for children. He wrote and illustrated Dragon and Wayne Anderson's Horrorble Book. His illustrations have twice won V&A Illustration Awards: he was overall Winner for Gnomes and Gardens, written by Nigel Suckling (Pavilion) in 2001, and Highly Commended for The Tin Forest, by Helen Ward (Templar) in 2002. He collaborated with Rosalind Kerven on The Fairy-Spotter's Handbook.
