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.

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.
