•••••
By Simon Young and Ceri Houlbrook

What do we know about fairies? A treasure trove of newly digitized information accessed here shows that the Disney image of Tinkerbell is but a weak shorthand for the plethora of different kinds and types inhabiting the British and Irish Isles.

Fairy sightings are deeply tied to local areas and their local character varies: in Sussex they are puckish but kind, but in the Scottish Highlands or Ireland you might end up dead after an encounter. Are fairies still with us? Yes, they are. Included with the book are new sightings of fairies up to the present. In fact, it turns out that there are even traveling fairies who reached Canada and New England.
