Book Description

13 Mar 2008 Flower Fairies
In this follow up to the hugely successful Fairyopolis (the New York Times bestseller), our narrator is Dulcie, the little girl who Cicely befriends in Fairyopolis. The year is 1933 and Dulcie, now a young woman aged 15, is living with her family in London. She remembers her childhood encounters with the fairies, but she has not seen them for a long time, and this saddens her greatly. She begins to investigate where the fairies have gone, little knowing that they are all around her as she writes! Her journal details her correspondence and contact with her friend and advisor Cicely, as well as her own thoughts, research and investigation into where the fairies have gone. And at the end of her book, on the eve of her 16th birthday, the fairies allow Dulcie to behold a truly magical sight....

I have previously bought this book from a NT shop for my daughter and was pleased to buy it for myself.

A lovely book with lots to look at, and good ideas for cardmakers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series every daughter must own 18 Nov 2008
By J. Shinn - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We started off the Flower Fairies series with "How to Find Flower Fairies" which so encompassed my 3 year old daughter's imagination we decided to complete the collection.

Return to Fairyopolis is just as spectacular a pop-up from Ms. Barker. However it is probably good to note that the pop-ups are not as intricate and large as "How to Find Flower Fairies", however the art and craftsmanship do not fail. My daughter, at three years of age, is constantly wanting to read her fairy books. Something about these artworks captures the imagination. My daughter can sit there and be transfixed for quite some time.

These books are a value at their suggested retail of $19.99 so being able to purchase them at Amazon's discounted price makes this even better. Get the series, give them to your daughter and have hours of fun exploring in the backyard with her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 10 April 2008
By S. L. Montag - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought the first book when it first came out for a friend's daughter. She loved the first one but since she just celebrated her 16th birthday, I was a little hesitant to buy this one. I thought she might be too old for it. I was wonderfully wrong. She loves it and said it has renewed her interest in writing fairy tales.
A winning combination: a happy young woman and an even happier older woman who got the book at a great price from Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has some charming features to captivate readers 20 Oct 2008
By Z Hayes - Published on
My favorite of these fairy books based on Cicely Mary Barker's illustrations is "How to Find Flower Fairies" which is filled with glorious pop-ups on each page [Garden Fairies, Tree-Top Fairies, Wayside Fairies, Marsh fairies etc]. It really brings the fairy world to life. Then there is Fairyopolis which is not so much a pop-up book but more of a collection of features such as lift-the-flaps, hidden notes, etc that still evoked the charming world of fairies as envisioned by the immensely talented Cicely Mary Barker [though the book itself was compiled by others based on her illustrations].

In this latest instalment titled "Return to Fairyopolis", I found that it was quite similar in layout to "Fairyopolis" but not as inspired. By going for the same, it seemed like the people who put it together were trying to ride on the popularity of the first book. That being said, this book does have charming features, new content and I especially liked the last two pages which is a full-color pop-up of the fairy world with sound effects. That to me was worth the price of the book [and it is sold at an appealing price here on Amazon].If you are a collector of Cicely Mary Barker's books and illustrations, or just a lover of all things fairy, then this will appeal to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Delightful 10 April 2009
By Nonna - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Return to Fairyopolis - What an adorable book for little girls. Little envelopes that open with letters inside; flowers that have notes written by fairies and the last page with fairy music and a pop up garden just magically appears! It brought so much fun me to see the amazement in my 6 year old granddaughter eyes as I read the story to her. I just bought another by the same author.
