Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The author has collected fairy poetry written by such luminaries as Alfred, Lord Tennyson, William Shakespeare, and Jack Prelutsky. The poems are divided into four chapters: "Where fairies dance," "Fairy justice," "The road to fairyland" and "Fairy helpers." They are also indexed by title, author, and first line, making it very easy to find your favorite. This very whimsical and fun book is an enjoyable read. Mr. Hague's beautiful artwork could lead one to believe in fairies with each poem matched with the perfect illustration. Anyone who believes in fairy tales or those who need a little persuading will find this book a wonderful addition to their library. It could also serve as a great introduction to fairy poetry for young readers and a good addition to any library. 2004, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 8 up.
—Gilda R. Daniels
School Library Journal
K-Gr 5-Filled with the stunning illustrations we've come to expect from Hague, this oversize collection is divided into four thematic chapters: "Where Fairies Dance," "Fairy Justice," "The Road to Fairyland," and "Fairy Helpers." Within each section are poems of varying length, all of which have language as rich and varied as the art. Poets represented include Shakespeare, Rachel Field, Walter de la Mare, Sir Walter Scott, and Annie R. Rentoul. Each selection creates a world in which fairies, elves, goblins, and other fantastical creatures coincide easily with the children who see them and believe in them. Similar in style to Cicely Mary Barker's The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies (Penguin, 1997), Hague's beautiful illustrations portray a much more realized world that exists among the treetops, deep within the earth and roots, and in the stars above us. This is a world with tiny creatures flitting among green leaves, enormous gnarled trees, and frothy waves; these beings, both beautiful and fearsome, beckon to children on every page.-Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
