This book has wormed its way right into my heart! Now, I will admit that I love fairies anyway, but this book is absolutely charming!
The text rhymes and is nice and lyrical. The pictures are just beautiful, engaging, and full of little surprises. If you really take the time to look through all the pictures, you'll see little ladybugs, snails, bees, other little bugs, and woodland creatures. There's a decent amount of diversity within the fairy ranks, including a boy fairy, and our main fairy is black.
I cannot say enough about the illustrations! I'm absolutely charmed by them. They're delightful! One page talks about using tiny brushes and oil pastels to paint the flowers and some of the fairies are holding little oil pastels that they're clearly using to color the flowers. It's just lovely.
The text is very lyrical. A few times the rhyming words were stretching it a bit, but they never broke the lyrical pace and flow. It's also obvious that the illustrator really paid attention to the text when she made the illustrations.
I highly recommend this book for any fairy lover in your life! It's just delightful!
