Magical for the young and young at heart Sept. 29 2009
By L. J. Demmler - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Welcome to the magical world of fairies! July 6 2009
By Ben - Published on Amazon.com
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! )

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 Amazon.com
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."

Magical Transformation Nov. 3 2009
By Nanci Arvizu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book makes me want to go plant a flower garden.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the little bits of insight Patricia gives us into the Fairy world along with the beautiful works of art she generously puts into the story make this such a magical journey to enjoy.
I had the opportunity to speak with Patricia on [...] about this book and others, both completed and in the works. Patricia is a very talented and creative artist and story teller, I can't wait for her next book to come out!

Disappointing Oct. 30 2010
By chris_gee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My grandchildren know about fairies, as their favourite treat is Fairy mushrooms (candy). The book is well presented and well illustrated in a picture perfect way. It is written like a supposed junior encyclopaedia entry with little asides like dictionary definitions and famous fairies. It fails utterly because this style and the language are well above the presumed age level. Older kids would find the repetitive suggestions that fairies are behind every ripple on the water or leaf movement ridiculous. I don't think the author writes well for children. My two were totally bored by the lack of story and failure to engage them. A disappointment and mistaken purchase that one would not make without buying sight unseen.
