Overview

Stories about fairies exist in almost every culture around the world. Fairies appear in many guises-from miniature winged people to balls of light. They are believed to possess magical powers and may be helpful and kind or mischievous and spiteful. Fairies are said to live in a realm apart from humankind, where they are governed by magical traditions. Today, fairies are celebrated by people of all ages through artwork, stories, songs, dances, and festivals. Fairies explains the folklore and mythology surrounding fairies and explores them as real beings who sometimes interact with human beings.

Throughout history, people have experienced amazing things that they could not fully explain. From encounters with strange creatures to sightings of mysterious flying lights, and from ghostly apparitions to visions of the future, these occurrences have fueled the idea that entities, powers, and dimensions may exist outside the boundaries of the everyday world. Each book in the MYSTERIES, LEGENDS, AND UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA series examines one area of the paranormal. Designed to inspire readers' imaginations while informing them of the known facts, these books are written by occult experts with firsthand experience in paranormal investigations.
