HASH(0x9d123e4c) out of 5 stars Magical for the young and young at heart Sept. 29 2009
By L. J. Demmler - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What a wonderfully magical book. From the moment we opened the book we were transported into the world of fairies. The illustrations and story are absolutely captivating and enchant you with the possibilities. Reading as a bedtime book, my five year old daughter was eagerly looking for fairies on her pillows that may be reading along with her! She loves to read this over and over, always finding something in the illustrations or story that she hadn't caught before - almost as if the fairies are re-writing for her delight between each read! A spectacular book that is marvelous for children of all ages.

HASH(0x9d086174) out of 5 stars Welcome to the magical world of fairies! July 6 2009
By Ben - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Welcome to the magical world of fairies! Patricia Saxton takes us to this enchanted world in her delightful new "Book of Fairies". Your inner child will be tickled pink with fun fairy facts, secrets and celebrations. Fairies is written with the same humor used so effecitively in the author's "Book of Mermaids". The beautiful quotes, fairyland insight and creative use of mixed media illustration make this book especially enjoyable.
I highly recommend this reading adventure! The playfulness, wisdom and book quality make purchasing a no brainer! You certainly will be proud to have "Book of Fairies" in your book collection...along with Patricia Saxton's "Book of Mermaids", if you don't already. (The back cover mentions that the author is woking on a third book! I can't wait to find out what other mystical being she will introduce us to! )

HASH(0x9ce31624) out of 5 stars Just Perfect! May 28 2013
By Jean Turicik - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am the Grandmother of 2 beautiful little girls--2 and 4 years old. Last Summer I created a Fairy Garden and the my oldest Granddaughter loved it! At the end of the season I packed up all the little Fairy things and put them away for the Winter. This year I put everything out for Memorial Day weekend and added another Fairy House-I had this book delivered the week leading up to Memorial Day. My Granddaughter brought chocolate chips and a gold grocery store token and placed them at the Fairy Homes. She read in this book that Fairies like Chocolate and Shiny objects--she loved this book-it was perfect. If you are a Grandparent, make a Fairy House and buy this book-and you'll be making memories for a lifetime.

HASH(0x9d1e3cfc) out of 5 stars A Sparkle of Thought Sept. 10 2009
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Opening the pages of such an enchanting story truly puts a sparkle into your heart. And after reading Patricia Saxtons "A Book of Fairies" you'll know that sparkley things are good. The "whimsical" of it makes the child in me begin to dream again, and the adult I am believe that anything is possible. I see things ever so differently now, knowing that it wasn't "all me"; that the beauty around me is more than what I see. Sometimes we must close our eyes and open our hearts to really see. Patricia's Book of Fairies helps us remember how magical life truly is - if only we believe!

HASH(0x9d5a07a4) out of 5 stars Sure to bring joy not only to young readers, but also to adults who still believe in fairies! July 27 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A Book of Fairies is a fantastic children's picturebook that presents a fascinating listing of imaginary facts about imaginary creatures. From the nature of Fairyland, to finding fairies, the tasks of fairies, fairy secrets and language, fairy medicine, and more, A Book of Fairies is a fun source of mystical speculation. The beautiful color illustrations perfectly complement the thoughtful text. A Book of Fairies is sure to bring joy not only to young readers, but also to adults who still believe in fairies! "Of all the earth fairies, flower fairies are around us the most. Flower fairies are the ones skipping through the ivy, or tending your vegetable patch - yet they can be awful hard to spot. They make their clothing from leaves and colorful flower petals, so they blend right into the gardens where they play."
