In the Land of Fairies
“Dwarfed by dormice and owls, moth-like fairies flit about the pages of this colorful book. Depicting the seasons, each page is framed by flowers and is painted in soft, bewitching water colors.” —Frances Perkins, Bournemouth Daily Echo, 13 March 2004
Welcome to the Land of Fairies, a hidden magical world where you’ll meet kind and joyful fairies and their animal friends. Each fairy is special—you’ll find them greeting springtime flowers, dancing on midsummer’s night, watching over the night creatures and sharing berries with chirping birds.
The lyrical story gently moves through the seasons with luminous illustrations capturing the character of each fairy. This vibrant picture book from bestselling international illustrator Daniela Drescher will captivate young readers who will want to return to the land of the fairies, time and time again.
