Where DO Fairies Go When it Snows?!


Where Do Fairies Go When it Snows? written by Liza Gardner Walsh is a wonderful fiction follow-up to her non-fiction fairy books: Fairy House Handbook and Fairy Garden Handbook also published by Down East Books. The onslaught of questions about the plight of fairies in the winter is made even more delightful by the illustrations of Hazel Mitchell. In fact, it is Ms. Mitchell's illustrations in another recent release, Animally, that prompted me to follow her on Facebook, and thus find out about this fairy adventure!

When she began posting about
Where Do Fairies Go When it Snows?, I couldn't wait to see what charming illustrations Hazel Mitchell would bring to this fantastical inquiry by Liza Gardner Walsh. I am lucky enough to have a sneak peek, and of course, the story and illustrations do not disappoint!

The whimsical illustrations spur on the reader's imagination to answer question after question about how fairies spend their winters. The reader is asked to contemplate whether fairies can maintain their cheer of spring and summer as winter approaches. While the questions may not be completely answered by the end, Liza Gardner Walsh opens a world of wonder with her first simple question, Where Do Fairies Go When it Snows?
