4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide to all things pixy 9 Oct 2012
If you want to know anything about elves and pixies this is a good guide. Contains several obscure stories about this fairy folk, as well as a huge list of elves. Although published elsewhere in Katharine Briggs's work, this is well worth the republish, in fact why is so much of her material out of print?
