The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies (Flower Fairies)
If youve never seen Cicely Mary Barkers amazing work before, be prepared to be blown away! Ms. Barker was an author/illustrator prominent in the 1930s and 40s in England. She published a total of 8 different books featuring her Flower Fairy illustrations. For the first time, all 8 books have been gathered together in this magnificent collection.
Each page features Barkers wonderful watercolor illustrations of a Flower Fairy. Each fairy comes from a different flower (for example, The Rose Fairy), berry (The Strawberry Fairy), Tree (The Pine Tree Fairy) or plant (The White Clover Fairy). Each fairy comes with an accompanying poem that tells the story behind each fairy. Truly a magnificent book for both young and old. The illustrations alone are worth buying this book.
