About this product
- DescriptionThe enchanting true story of a girl who saw fairies, and ather with a gift for art, who concocted a story to stay out of trouble and ended up fooling the world. Frances was nine when she first saw the fairies. They were tiny men, dressed all in green. Nobody but Frances saw them, so her cousin Elsie painted paper fairies and took photographs of them dancing around Frances to make the grown-ups stop teasing. The girls promised each other they would never, ever tell that the photos weren t real. But how were Frances and Elsie supposed to kw that their photographs would fall into the hands of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle? And who would have dreamed that the man who created the famous detective Sherlock Holmes believed ardently in fairies and wanted very much to see one? Mary Losure presents this enthralling true story as a fanciful narrative featuring the original Cottingley fairy photos and previously unpublished drawings and images from the family s archives. A delight for everyone with a fondness for fairies, and for anyone who has ever started something that spun out of control.
