A Natural History of Fairies by Emily Hawkins
There is magic in this book.
"With research compiled in the 1920s by the botanist Professor Elsie Arbour for her niece, is now unveiled for readers of today" -
This book would have been a treasure to me as a child, so I am extra delighted to be able to share it with you. It reads like an encyclopedia - with so many details and stories and "research" about fairies from all over the world. Alongside that - MAGICAL illustrations, tenderly depicting all kinds of diverse fairies (the page about fairies as babies!) in all forms at all stages of their lives.
Cloth bond and embossed with gold, with a bright yellow ribbon book mark, this is a true treasure of a book to love for many, many years to come.
Age Range: 6 - 10 years
