CMB's fairies are full of exuberance and joy (and, sometimes, the gentle pause of contemplation) love of nature and the wonder of childhood. This book has lovely poetry, which at times I struggle with since I am not that much into poetry, but the drawings, colorings, the feel of the book just makes you want more.

The first adventure in the Folio Society editions of ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ series, Enid Blyton’s The Enchanted Wood features Jonathan Burton’s enchanting illustrations and a new introduction by Michael Morpurgo. Perfect for fans of all ages, this wonderful collection includes all the original Flower Fairy poems and illustrations by Cicely Mary Barker from the classic books. My granddaughter has spent a lot of time just admiring the pictures and selecting her favourite fairies. The name of Frederick Warne reminded me of books from my own childhood, Beatrix Potter, Edward Lear and Kate Greenaway. None of my children have ever liked the paper covers on hardback and always remove them, so I was pleased to see that this has a nice cover underneath (some hardbacks just have plain cloth covers, but this looks good with or without the slip cover).Featuring extraordinary illustrations by Clive Hicks-Jenkins and an exclusive introduction by Janina Ramirez, each of the 750 numbered copies has been signed by both contributors. An exclusive new Folio edition, Letters from Fairyland features exquisite miniature envelopes filled with heartfelt letters from Fairyland, and is lavishly illustrated with Charles van Sandwyk’s enchanting illustrations. There were also several other memorable poems (for very different reasons though) such as: Traveller’s Joy, which sounds kind of ridiculous when read aloud, but this did elicit a lot of giggles from us; "Toadflax" sounds like a Harry Potter-esque swear word; and the Nightshade Berry fairy is straight up trying to murder children with his berries! Having all the stories compiled in one volume definitely remains handy, though the format wa a touch off putting at times.

Printed full-colour throughout, featuring all existing fairy illustrations, plus further decorative line drawings.

I received a Flower Fairies calendar when I was young and saved all of the art from it, because I loved it so much.The book has the complete collection of poems of Cicely Mary Barker divided in sections with the drawings in great quality and detail. The art is stunning and the poems are sweet and informative without feeling like you are just sitting learning a lesson about plants. Featuring a fascinating introduction by Val McDermid and new illustrations by Juan Esteban Rodríguez, each copy has been signed by both the introducer and the illustrator. Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower Fairies™ books, published in the first half of last century, are known and loved around the world.

On the other hand, if you don't have any kids in your life, nobody will blame you if you get it for yourself.

Not only does it work as a collection of poems, but it also helps teaches children about flowers and plants and enriches nature for them.Enjoy the classic, complete collection of Cicely Mary Barker's original Flower Fairies books in this brand-new edition. Presented in a treasury box set that retains all the charm of Beatrix Potter’s originals, this is the perfect gift for any child. Obviously I was planning on slowly tracking down the remainder of the flower fairies books for my collection, and this book proves why we collectors make a point of gathering multiple editions or reissued work! This new Folio Society box set sees Barker’s exquisite paintings and nature-inspired poems presented as a complete collection, in an exclusive new layout that best displays these imaginative illustrated verses.
