A very nice book that provides charming ideas for using natural materials in building your own fairy structures and accessories. The book is far superior to some fairy books ice purchased. ( )

After reading Tracy Kane's Fairy Houses - a storybook about a young girl who creates a fairy-house while on vacation with her parents in Maine - which I liked, but did not love, I was curious to see how I would respond to this, a collection of photographs of actual fairy houses. After all, I really liked the idea of Fairy Houses, and was curious to learn more about their origin and construction. Unfortunately, although this volume contains many photographs - both of fairy houses in their entirety, and close-up shots of specific details - there is almost no text.

I have to say that I found this more than a little disappointing, since one of my main areas of interest, when it comes to this sort of thing, is tracing how the custom developed. Of course, I suppose I could always track down Maureen Heffernan's Fairy Houses of the Maine Coast, but I'm starting to get discouraged! Still, those who are interested in fairy houses, either because they want to make some themselves, or because they just love all things fairy, will derive significant pleasure out of perusing these photographs.
