Ever wondered who lives int he bottom of your flower garden. Well wonder no more. Tiny Flower Fairies going about their daily lives helping to look after the countryside. Camouflaged in petals, pods and leaves of the flowers they are born to. unlike normal fairies these ones do not have wands or grant wishes, they instead dance and play and tend to their plants and each other, living in gardens, parks and country lanes.
A beautifully illustrated book by Cicely Mary Barker, I am drawn to the dreamlike nature of it. This is one of a series and is very intriguing as it as some rhyme and cunningly it teaches its young reader name and descriptions of the all the flowers one would expect to find in such a delightful garden. Reading about Cicely we find she used young children to model her fairies from and kept true to all the plant life.
30 years after her death these books still entrance and delight us all.
