5.0 out of 5 stars is full of information,but not for children
This book is fabulous and is more suitable for the adult faery lover as there's slight nudity, so it wouldn't be suitable for children. The pictures are simpler lines, reminiscent of illustrations from vintage children's books, with the black outlines and vibrant colours but don't have as much of the details as some of the faery artists i know of. the stories inside are...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not an encyclopedia at all!
I was really disappointed in this book. Called a great encyclopedia, I expected a comprehensive guide to fairies, but instead only a few catagories are mentioned. I think an encyclopedia should contain a lot more information than this. The biggest disappointment are the pictures which are really childish and not very well drawn in many cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars is full of information,but not for children, 12 Feb 2002

This review is from: The Great Encyclopedia of Faeries (Hardcover)
This book is fabulous and is more suitable for the adult faery lover as there's slight nudity, so it wouldn't be suitable for children. The pictures are simpler lines, reminiscent of illustrations from vintage children's books, with the black outlines and vibrant colours but don't have as much of the details as some of the faery artists i know of. the stories inside are wonderful and dubois provides information on customs, habitat and activities of these little people. This book would make a great gift for any adult faery lover.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Buy, 9 Feb 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Great Encyclopedia of Faeries (Hardcover)
I got this book for my 11th birthday and it is a wonderful gift. I snuggled up in bed with this and sat there for ages, just reading and reading. Flick over to any page and you will find something you like. Each creature has 2 pages dedicated to them, with tons of illustrations, habitats, appearences, a story from history, facts, poems, sightings and myths. It is packed full of faeries, boggarts, sirens and beasts. Soon, you will learn to adore ever single one of them, and you will never get tired of the secrets hidden inside the beautiful gold covers.
