This is an exciting new edition of a classic storybook anthology, illustrated for the first time in colour by bestselling author Daniela Drescher. The book is a collection of forty stories from around Europe about gnomes, dwarfs, leprechauns, fairies and little folk. The stories come from Ireland, Germany, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, England, Flanders and Scandinavia.
'This book is illustrated throughout with beautiful, colourful pictures by Daniela Drescher that have much of interest in them and are a real delight to linger over and discuss with the young reader... I thoroughly recommend this lovely book, which I think would be enjoyed by children of all ages.' --Rosemary Usselman, New View, Summer 2010 'The stories vary in length and complexity, but all of them fascinate. This is a handsome resource for sharing and for independent readers to enjoy on their own.' -- Books for Keeps, July 2010
