Perhaps you think fairies are figments of the imagination, or even relics of an ancient past. You may even think all fairies are lovely winged creatures, who dance in bluebell fields, granting wishes to anyone who should encounter them. You would be wrong on all counts. Fairies are very much alive today, and they are everywhere—in our cities, our backyards, and even our kitchen cupboards. Some of them are indeed the sweet-tempered, winged creatures of folklore, but the fairy family also includes goblins, trolls, brownies, and other strange creatures, some of which are revealed to humans in this book for the very first time. While many fairy breeds are harmless, others can be quite nasty or even dangerous.In this luxuriously illustrated guidebook, preeminent fairy expert Miss Edythe McFate shares her knowledge of the modern fairy world and includes practical advice on matters such as how to tell a good fairy from a bad one, how to spot a “fairy ring,” how to tell the difference between dwarves and trolls (one species is far deadlier than the other), and how to defend against fairies who would do you harm. Also included are eight true cautionary tales about children who have encountered fairies in ultramodern New York City.You would be wise to read closely, lest you find yourself in your own fairy encounter, for as Miss Edythe McFate reminds us, “Forewarned is forearmed.”

My 7 year old daughter is way into fantasy (or maybe real! :) creatures like fairies, dragons, etc. This book tells you all about a few different kinds of fairies and related creatures, which ones to stay away from, which ones that are helpful, and what signs to look for to see if they have been around. My daughter is now a walking encyclopedia of fairies! Its so fun to hear her educate us about the different creatures she has learned about. This has become her favorite book, and she carries it around with her everywhere. It is written with a lot of humor, I found myself getting a little sucked into it before I gave it to her. Very happy with our purchase :)

This book is fantastic! I started reading it, just to make sure mit wouldn't give my kids nightmares, and I couldn't put it down. Now I'm reading it aloud to my kids in the evenings. They are really enjoying it and no nighmares so far. I'm skipping the one about the goblins for the kids just to be safe. It is so vivid and well written. 5 stars!

Parts were a little far fetched, but it was still an interesting and easy read. I needed it for an assignment in a college class.

This is not your average fairy book. The stories are well told, impeccably written and beautifully illustrated, but if you are looking for a cutesy kiddie book you are way off track.
Mysterious Wrench
Really creative! I loved the combination of dark and whimsical.

This book seemed to waver between presenting Fairy folklore and trying to be a children's storybook. Although it was humorous in parts, it didn't quite have the tongue-in-cheek cleverness the Unfortunate Event Series. The author is obviously knowledgeable about folklore, and I appreciated the attempts to modernize the stories to current times, but it was little hard to connect with the characters, and the stories didn't always really illustrate the concepts from fairy lore.

This is on of those books that really makes you want to believe in fairies and other mythical creatures. It is very descriptive and also a few pictures that have been carefully and creatively made. I would definitely suggest this book to other people.
10 year old Daughter loves this book!!!!!
