Now that the Fairies Have Houses…

March 13, 2006 @ 10:34 am | Filed under: Books

080277487301_aa_scmzzzzzzz_…they’ll need something to eat. Beanie’s fairy house (photo to come) turned into a restaurant with seashell plates. Naturally, the girls had to run for their favorite fairy cookbook: Mud Pies and Other Recipes. I do believe it was Alice who introduced us to this book some six or seven years ago.

I’ll add some more fun fairy books later, but right now I’m off to visit the midwife.

I’m back! As promised:

072324839701_aa_scmzzzzzzz_The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies and others by Cicely Mary Barker, including this one which I haven’t seen but which looks like lots of fun: How to Host a Flower Fairy Tea Party.

Twig by Elizabeth Orton Jones.
A sweet novel about a little girl who makes a fairy house out of an old tomato can.

Fairy Fun: A Child’s Fairyland of Enchanting Projects and Magical Games by Maria S. Schwartz.

Fairy Houses by Tracy L. Kane. I haven’t reviewed this one yet, but it looks charming. We’ll see if our library has it.

Ditto for this one: Fairy Island: An Enchanted Tour of the Homes of the Little Folk by Laura Martin.

  1. Lissa!!! You are pulling out all my favorite things this week!!!

    Ah, how I love the Spring!

    BTW, I still remember Jane, a baby who could read perfectly, following those recipes to the letter. : ) : ) : )

  2. Thank you so much! What a treasure to find in my blog feeds!

    “Mud Pies” was beloved to me when I was a child.

    I have been looking for it for years, both book and title are longlost in mud and muddied memories. I will be ordering it for my two kidlets a.s.a.p.

  3. Lissa, the Cicely Mary Barker’s are our absolute favorite fairy books!! The illustrations are so inspiring, oh if only it would stop snowing…printing out your list of others they all look so good!!

  4. The cookbook for dolls is too much. I really want to see that in person. Very neat.

  5. Lissa,
    You and Alice introduced this book to me way back when. : )

    Every now and then, my 8 yr old goes through the house muttering, “Now where’s that cookbook!”

    I know exactly which one she’s looking for. : )
