This book has been a part of my life since I was a young girl, and I have shared it with my own daughter. As a child, this book inspired me as well as my brother to explore the earth around us with rose-colored glasses. We saw a magical yard after reading this book and would read this book together over and over for instructions and details on finding fairies for years. The illustrations and interactive pages created a fantasy world for us and are now creating that world for my daughter. I would recommend this book to any child or adult. It contains illustrations for the smallest children to the oldest. If showing this book to a child younger than five, I would protect the pages and cover; however, the book is soft and will not harm the child. The child may or may not accidentally harm the book. There is writing that adults may even find interesting. This book will always be one of my favorites. ( )

Even though I highly doubt that this book is based on Cicely Mary Barker's real journal, I'm willing to suspend disbelief for the sake of its charm. Its pages are filled with a haphazard array of Barker's musings on her summer home and drawings of the fey creatures she comes to believe are living around it and causing mischief. Her fictitious journal lacks the adject wonder of Brian Froud's Lady Cottington publications, but it is clearly geared towards younger readers who are generally more impressed by an overabundance of imagery and small tidbits of fairy lore than for serious (or may not so serious in Froud's case) fairy scholars and art enthusiasts. What I wonder most, though, is whether Barker's papers (including her journals) do exist in an archive somewhere, and whether it wouldn't have been a more interesting concept to base the book on her actual diaries. Her publications do contain her own poems afterall, so it would be very intersting to get a glimpse into her actual research, collection ideas, and real life inspirations. ( )

I've always loved fairies, since I was a kid, and even now. I really love anything about them, I even have a bottle of glittering fairy dust. ( )

During the summer of 1920 Cicely Mary Barker kept a journal of her time in Storrington, it was during this time she felt most inspired by her fairy friends, and so decided to entrust her journal to The British Faerie Folklore Society for preservation. It is this journal we are presented with here.

Storrington is a place of tranquillity surrounded by beauty and wild flowers. And as Cicely Mary Barker discovered, it is also surrounded by fairies. Day after day Cicely discovers more and more evidence of fairies. From tiny foot prints, to enchanting music, fairy wings and fairy dust, and also fairy's in photos.

It is an invaluable journal full of tips and hints on identifying fairies, and where they can be found. There is a guide to fairy trees and fairy rings and also tales of fairy. And there is also a recipe for blackberry jam! But above all else there are fairies themselves dancing through the pages of this journal.

I love the interactivity with this book. Fairyopolis is a magical guide into a world not often seen, but often imagined. There is so much magic and beauty to discover within these pages, and I hope any fairy lover will take the time to uncover it. ( )

An altogether beautiful book, but from my experience with the 'Ology' series, I doubt that the facts are accurate, though I have not studied fairies yet. But I did enjoy reading this book and looking at the beautiful drawings and pictures. ( )
