The Golden Books Treasury of Elves and Faires

Summer nights always seem full of magic.  You could believe that there are elves and fairies hiding about, especially ones that look as charming as Garth Williams' pictures.  This book was on my Amazon wish list for years when lo and behold I found it in the bin at the used bookshop for $2.  It's a collection of stories and poems in a large over sized format with  bright colorful vintage illustrations.


illustrated by Garth Williams 1951

What would you do if a Brownie became your friend, or you had a pair of silver slippers, or found a lost merbaby? So many wonderful stories fit for a summer night of reading.
