Poets from Shakespeare to Walter de la Mare to Jack Prelutsky have written about fairy folk. Sometimes they canbe benefactors and helpers; ofttimes, tricksters; but always, creatures of sublime beauty and wonder. Here, in a sparkling collection, are Michael Hague's favorite fairy poems, illuminated by pictures from this master painter of fantasy. His fanciful artwork has never looked more otherworldly or beautiful.

Michael Hague has illustrated more than thirty children's classics, including memorable editions of The Wizard of Oz, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Wind in the Willows, and The Secret Garden. He is also the artist of several bestselling books by his wife, Kathleen, including Alphabears, Numbears, and Ten Little Bears. The father of three grown children and the grandfather of four, Michael has a ready audience for all of his work.From School Library Journal :
Kindergarten-Grade 5–Filled with the stunning illustrations we've come to expect from Hague, this oversize collection is divided into four thematic chapters: "Where Fairies Dance," "Fairy Justice," "The Road to Fairyland," and "Fairy Helpers." Within each section are poems of varying length, all of which have language as rich and varied as the art. Poets represented include Shakespeare, Rachel Field, Walter de la Mare, Sir Walter Scott, and Annie R. Rentoul. Each selection creates a world in which fairies, elves, goblins, and other fantastical creatures coincide easily with the children who see them and believe in them. Similar in style to Cicely Mary Barker's The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies (Penguin, 1997), Hague's beautiful illustrations portray a much more realized world that exists among the treetops, deep within the earth and roots, and in the stars above us. This is a world with tiny creatures flitting among green leaves, enormous gnarled trees, and frothy waves; these beings, both beautiful and fearsome, beckon to children on every page.–Jane Marino, Bronxville Public Library, NY
