The title itself is enough to immediately draw your attention, ¿Pressed Fairy Book.¿ It sparks your curiosity doesn¿t it? This book is filled from cover to cover of beautifully drawn illustrations of smashed fairies, sounds a bit morbid but I assure you there were no fairies intentionally harmed, I¿d rather say the fairies were all voluntarily smashed. This book starts out like a journal of a little girl written in that sloppy writing we all had at seven years old. The little girl explains how as she was sitting in her garden writing in her journal she has these bugs (which she later found out were fairies) flying all around her head and she used her book to smash one and oops! It was a fairy, but oddly the fairy was making faces as it was smashed in her book, almost like it though it to be fun or a game. Through out the years the little girl collects any fairy she runs across in her book catch many different varieties of fairies. This book has throughout the years been my favorite book, and I often give it as a Christmas gift because it is most decorative and amusing for everyone who lays their eyes on it. This book is exceptionally rare and becoming increasingly hard to Find at many book stores, which is an even better reason to give this as a gift to the art or fairy lover in your family. It serves as a great coffee table book and will entertain even the grumpiest of in-laws visiting your home. I give this book a rating of Five Stars in illustrations, four stars in story line, and Three stars in availability. I recommend this book for all ages, and highly recommend this book as a gift. You can find this book at WWW.barnes and noble.com. This book price ranges from $16.99 - $24.99, there are also many alternatives to the book its self there is a calendar, pocket book and a new version of this book called ¿Lady Cottington¿s Pressed Fairy Letters¿ which gives you additional hilarious illustrations of smashed fairies. This author and illustrator really know how to put a smile on anyone¿s face. Overall rating: 5 stars Based on 5 star rating scale

    I thought the book was interesting to read through once. This is not for children, though. Teen-agers might be able to handle this, as there is illustrated nudity on the top of the fairies and some bare bottoms. These fairies are not the cutesy, cartoony ones that wear wispy clothing. I liked the story that was written by Terry Jones of Monty Python. It is a fun and non-stressful, escape-from-reality type of book. This is a full-size 64 page soft cover book. Each person that reads it will have a different way of looking at it as to whether this is horribly offensive or not. Some people may not enjoy the squashed fairies in the book. This does not have the DVD in it as the hardback 10th anniversary edition does.
