After a long winter’s rest with little to do,
are the fairies ready to start something new,
Do they use tiny brushes and oil pastels
to paint crocuses, lilacs, and daffodils?
Everyone knows fairies love spring flowers and summer sun, but is it the fairies who wake up the earth as the snow melts? Do they entice the trees to turn green and the flowers to grow? In this charming follow up to Where Do Fairies Go When It Snows, Liza Gardner Walsh, acclaimed author of the Fairy House Handbook and Fairy Garden Handbook, explores the matter in a children's picture book of rhyming questions. Combined with delightful illustrations by Hazel Mitchell this whimsical book will help children discover the world of fairies and learn to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors.
Liza Gardner Walsh is the author of several books, including Fairy House Handbook, Fairy Garden Handbook, Where Do Fairies Go When it Snows, Treasure Hunter's Handbook, and The Maine Coon Cat. She is a former children's librarian, preschool teacher, high school English teacher, writing tutor, museum educator, and she holds an MFA in writing from Vermont College.
Although her books are on a variety of different subjects, at their heart they are about wonder, appreciation, and exploration. The Handbook series aims to get kids outside exploring nature the way Liza did when she was little and what she still does with her two daughters and husband on the beautiful coast of Maine where they live. She and her family can often be found making tiny houses for fairies, mice, trolls, and other small creatures while also making forts and other natural installations in the woods.
