“Children, the knowledge that I am passing to you is precious and must be carefully guarded…”

After centuries of being hidden from human sight, the Flower Fairies allowed Cicely Mary Barker a glimpse into their enchanted fairy world in Fairyopolis. Now you can continue the adventure with this spectacular new novelty book where every page unlocks the secrets behind the magical places the fairies call home. Five eye-popping spreads include intricate three-dimensional pop-up images of flowers and trees that magically open up to reveal the secret homes of the fairies. Lift-the- flaps, booklets, maps and other ephemera provide interactive fun on every page leading up to a stunning surprise on the final spread.
This book is a favorite at our home as are the others in Cicely Mary Barker’s Fairyopolis series. With holographic pictures, pop ups, hidden letters, glitter embellishments and raised graphics it is a multi sensory experience which leaves the reader feeling like they have stepped into the fairy realm. Her illustrations, handwritten notes and photographs are enchanting. It is a book that will not gather dust on your shelves and will remain a keepsake in our homes! Five stars.
