   a great addition to any library
I bought my first Cicely Mary Barker book of Fairies 40 years ago, when I was enchanted by the illustrations and saw the miniature set for my toddler daughter. Literally, they were loved to death. When I saw this compilation, I knew that I had to reconnect with these magical boy and girl fairies. The illustrations are charming and lively and the flowers and trees that form the backgrounds are detailed and magical in themselves. The illustrations in this particular book are included to focus on each fairy child, but enough of each background is cropped so that the viewer will not feel like they are missing a thing. Now I have to go back and collect all the full sized picture books because I know they will delight and inspire.

   Recreating my childhood, I suppose
I had a few Flower Fairy books when I was small, and have always loved Cicely Mary Barker's illustrations. They don 't age well, and it is very nice to have them all in one volume. I did love these small books, just as I did Beatrix Potter's. Small books for small hands has always seemed sensible and thoughtful, as many of us outgrow have been read at a very early age. My only regret, and it is probably silly, is how CMB's estate apparently capitalized on her name and her fame. In the last few years, I have seen flower fairies in many different media, and I always think how beautiful it would have been for HER to get that money.

   Never too old for the Flower Fairies
This is a beautiful book that is ageless and also a talking point and an ideal coffee table book, with which everyone falls in love when they see it, as well as delectable illustrations, it is full of poems that will either fall in love with them the way I did when I was a child nearly 70 years ago. A timeless classic, which should be in everyone's home library, should be.

   The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies (2019) Delightful, Charming and Beautiful!
How wonderful to have all eight flower fairies books in one beautiful volume! Cicely Mary Barker's pre-Raphaelite influenced watercolors are charming, artistic and botanically accurate. I like the size and really appreciate the semigloss paper, which shows the color and details of the artwork nicely. However, they are really formatted artistically and I enjoy the flow of a variety of page layouts. My daughter and her new baby will love it! Another Book Box Set I bought another set to keep at our home -- the eight-volume box set, which has the complete, untrimmed pictures of the Flower Fairies Library httpswww. amazon. comgpawd0723259755?psc 1&ref ppx_pop_mob_asin_title. Our granddaughter can enjoy the beautiful flower fairies at home or at Grandma's!
