If you see a fairy ring,
In a field of grass,
Very lightly step around,
Tiptoe as you pass. . . .

A rich combination of enchanting verse and magical color illustrations make this a truly unusual and attractive book for younger children. The easy and accessible poemsall of them written by major literary figuresshare a common theme: fairies and fairyland. Ingenious paper engineering produces illustrated images that change in their details as kids turn the pages. For example, a morning woodland scene becomes a moonlit fairy party when its gatefold is opened. The verses are by Robert Graves, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and several other memorable writers. Robert Graves offers the short, delightful verse, Id Love to be a Fairys Child, and several poets, including Steven Kroll and Thomas Hood, present poems about fairies that visit children in their dreams. Laura Ingalls Wilders The Sunshine Fairies, and Juliana Horatia Ewings The Rainbow Fairies associate fairy activities with nature and the weather. These are just a few of the many poems that adorn this fine little volume. It will delight and enchant younger children each time they turn its pages.
