Synopsis

Flower Fairies of the Garden by Cicely Mary Barker

For the first time in over 10 years all eight Original Flower Fairies Books[trademark] are being re-designed. Inspiration has been drawn from the original publishers connections with The Glasgow School of Art to produce an exquisite new cover. With fresh new title pages and endpapers, reset text and printed on a fine quality paper, these new editions make a charming gift for all Flower Fairy enthusiasts. In a format that has enchanted readers for 90 years, each of Cicely Mary Barker's beautiful illustrations of the fairies of wild and familiar garden flowers is accompanied by a delightful poem. Flower Fairies of the Garden celebrates and introduces children to the flowers and plants that grow in the garden by making them magical. Garden favourites to be found in Flower Fairies of the Garden include: The Narcissus Fairy, The Lavender Fairy and The Cornflower Fairy. The seven other titles in the Flower Fairies series, Flower Fairies of the Spring, Flower Fairies of the Summer, Flower Fairies of the Autumn, Flower Fairies of the Winter, Flower Fairies of the Wayside, Flower Fairies of the Trees and A Flower Fairy Alphabet, are available as single editions or as part of The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies. Also available from Penguin is The Everyday Handbook for Magical Mothers as presented by the Flower Fairies - a handy, pocket-sized book of craft ideas and recipes for mothers who need a touch of magic in their lives.
