In Phoebe Wahl’s Backyard Fairies, a girl searches for fairies in her backyard and the woods beyond, following little clues and traces of magic. Fairies and other magical creatures can be found on every page, hidden among the flowers, trees and pebbles. But although readers can see them, the girl keeps searching, just one step behind. In the end, it is clear (both to the girl and readers) that there is magic all around, even when it's hidden in plain sight.

Phoebe Wahl takes us deep into the imaginary world of fairies, and her vibrant, multi-textured woodland scenes are every bit as enchanting as the creatures therein. A gorgeously illustrated tribute to imagination and the natural world.
