    Very cute coffee book

    I bought this book a few weeks ago, and have been impressed with it. It's not very big, only about seventy-one pages long, but it lists notable creatures of Irish myth. The illustrations are very well-done, and give the book its playful, mock-serious feel. I'd definately recommend this book, as it's a fun mini-read, and a nice coffee book.

    Interesting

    This book was very unique. It truly is a field guide for fairies. it lists types and locations and what to expect. I found it interesting as well as informative, but it wasn't really a book you would sit down and really read.
