Booklist: Fairy Nice

If a book has a fairy on the cover, chances are I'll pick it up and read the plot summary. If it sounds good, I have to read the book. My two favorite fictional fairies - say that ten times fast - are Tinker Bell from Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie and Tiki from The Fairy Rebel by Lynne Reid Banks. The following titles are fairy nice.

Classics
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
The Fairy Books by Andrew Lang

Artwork and Poetry

As mentioned earlier, I adore the character of Tinker Bell as created by J.M. Barrie. I also like Disney's depiction of her. Learn more about my Tink fandom.
