Join the likes of Shakespeare, William Blake, and J.M. Barrie and lift the veil between the faerie world and our own. Meet a variety of faerie folk through stories, poems and snippets of lore from Britain and Ireland. Each story introduction is filled with fascinating historical and literary details about faerie customs, all sprinkled among the shower of pixie dust, glittery stars and fluttery dragonflies that highlight Gail Newey's whimsical illustrations. Everyone loves faeries and this popular collection is written by Tanya Batt, a full-time professional fairy and storyteller. It brings together stories, poems and snippets of fairy lore. The story CD allows children to listen and read at the same time. The addition of the story CD allows children to listen to the stories while on the go - or to fall asleep at night.
