There is so much fairy stuff out there these days it is hard to know what to buy. Some of it is so twee and fluffy it must be for children, and some of it is aimed at academics. This is full of reliable information and is fully referenced, but it is well written in a very readable and entertaining way. I have never seen so complete a fairy dictionary or anything like. I love Paul and Helen's pictures, both very diffeerent in style, but they show fairies good and bad, beautiful and ugly, sublime and comical.
