A Fairy Went A-Marketing

Rose Fyleman, Author, Jamichael Henterly, Illustrator Dutton Books $12.99 (2p) ISBN 978-0-525-44258-5
Henterly adds elaborate pictures to this simple verse taken from Fairies and Chimneys by the late Fyleman. The artist has created a fairy-world of beauty with animals, plants, reptiles and small details making each double-page spread a breathtaking scene. The fairy-girl goes to market four times; whatever she buysfish, bird, gown or mouseshe sets free or gives away. Henterly's luminous drawings reveal an eye for the many fleeting details of naturethe curve of a squirrel's tail, the peeling bark of a birch tree. (4-6)
