The sun is out. The birds are singing. It’s a perfect day for tracking fairies. Are you game? Follow our intrepid young narrators as they skip from rock to flower to waterfall, following the clues. Will their search turn up any fairy friends?

Illustrated with photos and art by the fabulous Christa Unzner, The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Fairies is a fascinating trip into that magical world that lies just on the other side of nature. You, too, can see the world through fairy-tinted glasses. Won’t you come along.

This book has a special appeal to children who love the outdoors and have not lost their belief in magic!
