This book is gorgeous and I can imagine any child would be delighted to find this under their tree this christmas. I know I'll certainly be purchasing this for friends and family for many years to come. Highly recommend this new author and look forward to many more!
The artwork is superb throughout and it is exciting to say the least to read all the bits of information dotted about the pages...and discover hidden things on postcards , in envelopes ..and even a piece of 'fairy textile', to touch.
There's also a bit of subtlety for the adults who read to children, regarding the Cottingley Fairies. One wonderful drawing has been reduced in size just to become a postage stamp! That's the attention to detail typical of the book.
A great deal of hard work has obviously gone into creating this work of art and it shows by the wonderful quality and number of the drawings...and the interest they create for the storyline. Finding clues to help prove the existence of the fairies will enthrall the little ones.
A superb book throughout but the final page has a wonderful piece de resistance...no I'm not going to spoil it for you!
If my granddaughters are are only 1/10 as excited as me about this book,I'm sure they will absolutely adore it.
UPDATE 18th Oct: A great success with the readers! The elder girl loves the book and wants to read the story for herself, while the younger was so excited that she could hardly wait to show her mum the fairies at the back of the book.
I definitely think its 10/10 all round.
STOP PRESS 28th October:
I took a copy of Wychwood Fairies to work and people,without access to the internet, were so impressed (and also with Amazon's price Vs recommended retail) that they asked me to order copies for them. So far 8 copies have been bought by me on behalf of work colleagues. They think the book will make a fantastic Xmas present...one is even being sent to Finland!
