A great read!
As an advocate of Fairy Rights I thinks it's important that non fairy types no more about us so they can be awares- after all squished fairy makes a terrible stain that is a divil of a job to get out!
So I was delighted when this book 'A Flower Fairies Journal' appeared 'as if by magic' in the branches of my oak tree this morning!
I feel that Cecily M Barker was truely blessed with fairy sight for she captures perfectly the mood of a fairy dell as well as rendering the dainty turn of a fairy foot.
Well this book is a treasure trove that is a feast for the eyes as well as the brain.
Each turn of the page brings forth a host of delights. Delicate water colour paintings dance across the page showing fairies and their habitats. As an added element little envelopes and letters are dotted around to be opened and explored making this book beautifully interactive.

It will entrance old and young alike- maybe a little look over the shoulder for the wee ones to make sure they don't open any enclosures TOO enthusiastically! But a real treat for all.
Only the most wicked beast could fail to be moved to a love of the little folk by this book.
