5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous magical book for little and much bigger kids besides :), 11 Dec 2013
This review is from: Betty Bib's Fairy Field Guide: The Illustrated Handbook of Fairies and Their Habitats (Hardcover)
As a child, I was read and loved books about fairies and this book is just one of the very best!!!
This book is a brilliant combination of immaculately hand made fairies and stunningly illustrated ones too!!
This book is no ordinary books on fairies, we have international fairies, and all the fairies have such different rolls and what they do in those rolls which is so captivating! The author's fairies made out if dried flowers are so artful. I do art and textile deign, and could not resist making a Christmas fairy a couple of years ago, and they are not as easy as they look at all, but great fun to make. A great project to get children to do, specially using natural bits and pieces for their clothing, fabric, sequins, paper and glitter etc. This is not designed as an arts book, but I just found it totally inspiring to have a go!!!
My copy is a hard back book, with 72 pages and it was published in 2005.
