Product Description

Review

The text's good-humored, confidential delivery gives the information spark. (Horn Book Guide 2003-04-00)

Have you ever had to answer the question, "Is the Tooth Fairy real?" Imagine You're a Fairy doesn't give authoritative answers to that question. However, it makes a humourous attempt at it! ... This book leads children into imagination not through story, but through questions. "What is a fairy?" and "What do fairies look like?" .... There is also an introduction to different kinds of fairies and mythical creatures...which are described and illustrated in a humourous way. While some of the illustrations of fairies describe them in the typical, traditional ways...the fairies are also portrayed as male, elderly, and of various cultural backgrounds. This book may appeal to children who are intimidated by text.... The reviewer considers this book to be a fun introduction into mythical beings. It could also be used in connection with St. Patrick's Day or Halloween activities. The author and illustrator have created a book, the uses of which are left up to one's imagination! Recommended. (Denise Weir Canadian Materials 2002-10-04)

About the Author

"Magic" Meg Clibbon used to live in the Enchanted Forest, where she taught fledgling fairies, pixies, and elves to read runes and write the magic alphabet. The most important lessons she taught were how to fly on moonbeams and gossamer into the land of dreams.

Lucy "Loveheart" Clibbon has a special interest in fairies. She is particularly fascinated by the Enchanted Forest and spends much of her time daydreaming about it. She works mainly in watercolor, collage, stickers, and glitter, but she also uses a little bit of magic and fairy dust.

It is very difficult to describe fairies because they are made out of the imagination, not out of words. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
My 6 year old daughter and I were enchanted. After the first reading, she started carrying this book around with her, looking for favorite pages, like the one with the yummy-looking recipe for Fairy Bars. Charming illustrations inspire a feeling of glitter and fairy dust on every page. It begins with a brief statement that fairies are made out of the imagination. The rest of the book describes fairies in a very matter-of-fact way, complete with definitions of all the types of fairies (pixies, elves, banshees, leprechauns, etc.), a map of the enchanted forest, one spell/potion each for good luck and for mischief, directions for practicing wand waving and flying, brief descriptions of famous fairies (Tinkerbell and Titania, Oberon, and Puck from a Midsummer Night's Dream), and suggestions for making fairy dust, a crown, and a wand. I especially like the emphasis on diversity among fairies (in terms of size, shape, color, and personality). What is valued most is the fairies' cleverness and magical abilities. Simply lovely.

My daughters (5 & 8) and I thought this book was more than magical, it was enchanting and informative and we learnt so much more about fairies than we knew before. Give this as a gift to your daughter, your God-daughter, or your niece... oe even your Mother-in-Law so she can know the spell / recipe for Good luck.
A gorgeous book!

Fairies exist in the imagination. Have fun with your fairy April 25 2009

when you have seen this book, you will know more about fairy folk than you did before. It is enjoyable and beautiful too look at. Congratulations to the authors.
Not A Story Book Oct. 4 2009
By T Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When I read it to my two daughters 7 and 8 they say it was more informational than a story book. It makes a great informational book with a little humor. I would recommend this book for a child 7 and older to read and learn about all different types of fairies. I could not see a five year old loosing interest really quickly or being over their head because it goes so into detail about the different types of fairies and the vocabulary. In addition, some of the words are in cursive.
