More About the Author

Amy Sparkes started writing creatively at the age of 5 and has not really stopped since. She wrote many stories, poems and plays throughout her school days and her first poem was published when she was 13 years old. Although she had intended to pursue poetry, a serious motorbike accident prevented her from taking a poetry course at university and she drifted back towards her other passion, children's stories.

In 2007, she decided to stop working for the NHS to look after her young children and take writing more seriously. A few months later, she scribbled down her first book, 'Hodge the Hedgehog' while her children had a nap.

Amy was born in Eastbourne, East Sussex but now lives in Devon with her husband and children. When she is not busy writing, Amy is often found wandering through woodland with her children, searching for fairies and goblins. So far, all she has found is inspiration.

Gruff's guide to Fairyland is fun. Just love the humour. It's a book that parents will relate to as well as children.
Brilliant description of Fairyland folk and good tips on how to survive in Fairyland.The illustrations are amusing too.
Looking forward to rest of series.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good book because it always makes you laugh on every single page. I liked learning where to meet trolls. It tells you what to do and where not to go for adventures. I did not like the front cover because it looked as if the book wasn't as good as it was. I just love this book. I am 8 years old and it was just right for me and even my cousin who is 5 enjoyed it too.

Format: Paperback
If you are going to Fairy Tale Land for your next holiday, then don't forget to take this essential guide. From where to stay (and where not to stay - be careful what you say about the porridge at the Three Bears B and B!) to how to travel (and how not to get around - that pumpkin coach may be just a vegetable!). The guide on what not to eat is particularly important - it's best to avoid the gingerbread men and apples are always risky. Where to shop, who to meet and what to do - it's all here in this most unusual guidebook. This book is hilarious - every page will have you chuckling out loud and children will adore it. Benji Davies' illustrations reflect the feel of the book wonderfully and add to it enormously.

Bought for my 5/6 year old granddaughter. Both she and her mother seem to like it. It does offer a new take on so many traditional fairy stories.
