ABOUT THIS BOOK

Modern Fairies is a complete departure for Lesley Blume, but one that has garnered both critical praise and commercial success in hardcover, and we expect to see great things from the paperback. It's elegantly written and beautifully illustrated, which will help set it apart from other books about fairies. Half guidebook and half short story collection, Modern Fairies is for children who love the earnest advice included in the Dangerous Book for Boys/Girls titles and the wicked fun of Roald Dahl. The illustrations are incredibly original and yet also instantly classic. David Foote is a real find and an artist from whom we can expect to see much more. 

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

LESLEY M. M. BLUME spent much of her childhood sitting in the backyard, willing fairies to appear. She has authored five children's novels for Knopf, including her latest: The Wondrous Journals of Dr. Wendell Wiggins: Describing the Most Curious, Fascinating, Sometimes-Gruesome, and Seemingly Impossible Creatures that Roamed the World Before Us.
