Show synopsis No other book can compare or yield the detailed information that we all seek from the time we are tiny children about the habits and habitats of those shy creatures with wings that leap from the pages of our childhood reading to populate our fleeting fantasmagorical and adult consciousness. On these haunting pages you will find depictions of 150 species of what we must categorise as 'faeries'. Seven (what other number could suffice?) chapters summon forth the Faeries of the Air and the Wind, the Faeries from the Fire, Worldly Faeries, Faeries of Sea and Spring, the Maidens from Green Kingdoms and the Airy-Faeries from the land of Dreams. The secrets of their habits and habitats, their riches and rags, their appearances and disappearances are uncovered and their sizes and shapes - never before revealed - are hinted at. This is a book for all the family to relish and read, a feast for the eyes, a fund of stories, facts and fiction, myths and mythology, full of fun and puns to captivate and enchant.
