Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Victorian-era stories, poems, and legends from Britain and Ireland combine in A Child's Book of Faeries retold by Tanya Robyn Batt, illus. by Gail Newey. Works by the likes of Shakespeare, Thomas Hood and William Allingham are framed by borders reminiscent of folk art and tinged with gold. Back matter contains source notes and a bibliography. (Sept.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Faeries of the British Isles are featured in this collection of stories, poems, and explanations. Not to be confused with the sweet fairy godmothers and tooth fairies of modern American myth, these are the little folk who play mischievous tricks, cause humans to lose their way when traveling, and replace babies with changelings. The four stories, all based on folklore, will be familiar to experienced storytellers and can be found in other collections, but they are gracefully retold here and work together to paint a picture of the prickly faerie folk. The poems are mostly from 19th-century sources. Depending on their predilections toward faeries, children will be either entranced or confused by the arcane language: "With a bridge of white mist,/Columbkill he crosses,/On his stately journeys,/From Slieveleague to Rosses." The explanations interspersed between stories and poems tell of the different types and tricks of faeries, how to guard against them, and what Elfland and the Faery Queen are like. The watercolor illustrations in jewel tones show the faeries with beautiful, wild dress and hairstyles and appropriately doll-like, detached faces. Broad borders surround the text, and full-page paintings have narrow borders of stars, moon, and planets. An attractive addition where folktale collections are popular.-Ellen Heath, Orchard School, Ridgewood, NJ Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
