More About the Author

"I have loved animals from as far back as I can remember", writes Celia Haddon. "As a child, I realised that some animals suffered at the hands of ignorant humans. To right this I have published several books about cats. Cats make me laugh. We humans don't really understand them, though. If we did, they would have a happier life.
For 20 years I wrote about companion animals (pets) for the Daily Telegraph. For 12 of these years I was a pet agony aunt and dealt with about 100,000 letters. My aim was to improve animals' lives by giving good information - and, with luck, to make my readers laugh at the same time.
My latest cat is Tilly and my latest cat book is Tilly the Ugliest Cat in the Shelter. It tells the story of how I rescued Tilly from 18 months without adoption; and how she rescued me in the darkest moment of my life. Her companion is Toby, whose story comes out in March as Toby The Cross Eyed Stray - Love, death and cats.
I have also written several daily quotation books, now out of print, and a history of the first English Olimpick Games in 1612 - now republished in Kindle.
Tilly tweets at My former cat George lives on digitally and advises other cats how to train humans at

Kingdom of Faerie on my coffee table 12 May 2000
By rowan eaglecrest - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is truly the most amazing art book on fae I have seen, aside from Brian Froud. The pictures take me to fantasy land on a regular basis. The colors couldn't be any better. Its the perfect gift for the faerie collecter, including yourself. I give it only 4 stars because it could have used more script and more pictures, although they were beautiful, I wish this book was bigger!

Wonderful and insightful book... 1 July 2011
By Zephyr - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The pictures within this book are quite gorgeous and well worth the price alone. Of course, I already have many of these images in other fairy art compilations, so it wasn't anything new for me. I think this is one of the first books where there is an equal amount of text and artwork to go along with it.

The inside of this book starts out with the author's explanation of how slowly humanity lost their belief in faerie beings due to horrific tortures and persecutions by Christianity. Celia Haddon's attitude toward non- believers is made apparent when she states that "those who favour a world of dull facts will be sure that there are no faeries, just as there are no angels, no devils, no human souls and no God". This book is geared toward people who are able to accept that not everything may have concrete evidence of existence. I found that one of the reasons this book is so appealing. The text is basically accounts of different faerie encounters and mythologies from various centuries written by people who supposedly experienced the fae first- hand. There is some poetry sprinkled among the text and I am happy to announce that for once the poetry wasn't bad. I am in no way a fan of poetry, especially ones that don't rhyme, but these ones were actually well chosen.

The artwork, poetry and excerpts of different works were all titled on the bottom of each page explaining the original title and the author or artist. I am happy that I don't have to flip through to the bibliography/credits page to figure out who painted a particular piece of art. I would easily recommend this book to anyone who loves old fashioned paintings and wants a lovely gift book worth reading. I am providing a video to show what kind of images are inside of this volume.

Enchanting Faerie Art Book 21 Dec 2006
By Miss Mermaid - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is another book a collector of Faerie art books will want to have. Pleasantly put together, it's art for the eye to relish in. There are many unique Fae inspired images to behold; ones I haven't seen in any other books I have listed in my Book List on Amazon. It's out of print so good luck finding a nice copy.
Love the book! 7 Mar 2014
