Few children don’t love fairies and other mystical beings. In Fairy Dreams, they can follow a trail of fairy mischief to find the tewleve treasures taken by the fairies from a child’s bedroom.
Along the way young readers can see mermaids, dragons, elves and unicorns and take a peek at the Fairies’ Ball.
The magic of this book is in the incredible illustrations of Carol McLean-Carr, created digitally and making use of scanned sketches and real objects as well as a digital airbrush and intricate layering of images. Pictures have a lovely depth and vibrancy which kids (and adults) will love. The text is secondary to the visual delights.
