Magicians And Fairies by Robert Ingpen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Although in no means an exhaustive source of fairytales, this book is a great run down on different 'fairy' creatures from around the world (Baba Yaga, dwarves, satyrs etc). For my own personal uses it has been a really good stepping stone for further research. I would not recommend this book for children, however, unless the have a true passion for the subject matter. It quite often states the facts in an unimaginative manner. Every few pages or so this book does relate a fairy tales in a fairly engaging manner, which breaks up the information nicely.
