Fairies, those elusive creatures of folktales and childhood longing, are celebrated here in a lovely, lavishly illustrated collection of stories, poems, and lore.
More than two dozen selections from varied cultures show the many-sided relationship between people and fairies. Sometimes helping, sometimes hurting, and sometimes capturing hearts--fairies' intentions are rarely clear, but their hold over our imaginations is sure. Their allure is beautifully conveyed in romantic paintings by Stephen Mackey and in the rich, evocative, and often funny language of renowned folklorist and writer Jane Yolen. These two talents, who share a long fascination with fairies, have created an enchanting collection worthy of a place in the hearts of children and all those captivated by the Folk.
