The Fairy Atlas
Fairy folks are found in the mythology of cultures all around the world. This lovely book looks at many aspects of the fairy folk—what they look like, how they act, where they can be found, what their stories are, and more. The book is broken into twelve sections, including Fairy Lore, the Faerie Realm, Signs of Fairies, as well as places such as Oceania, Europe, and Asia. Maps are included to show where in the world the various fairy folks are found.
Some youngsters may be surprised to find that fairy folks come in all shapes and sizes and that not all are sweet and maybe a little mischievous, but some are mean and downright dangerous. Some bring luck or leave little treasures, while some make people lose their way. The book includes a few of the stories found in particular cultures. Beautiful illustrations cover every page, some in color and some in black and white, to help youngsters sort all the fairy folk out. The text is written in fun, bite-sized chunks that will please young readers and keep them engaged.
Middle-grade readers will spend a lot of time with this wonderful book.
