A facsimile of the 1923 Methuen edition. Rose Fyleman’s lovingly illustrated fairy book has been out of print for decades, and currently sells for three figures on-line. This is a whimsical book, for all who remember the author’s phrase “There are fairies at the bottom of our garden…”
Rose Fyleman, born in Nottingham, was a popular writer of stories and poetry for children. She died in 1957. Her work — and that of the illustrator Hilda Miller — lives on in fairy sites all over the internet.
