This magical follow-up to The Big Book of Adventure, The Big Book of Horror, and The Big Book of Knights, Nobles, and Knaves ushers children into fairyland. There, young readers will meet fairies of the forest and water, as well as fairy godmothers. The beautifully illustrated stories come from around the world, and explore many aspects of fairy life: Is there a separate fairy kingdom or do we share the same world? Do fairies live forever?
