Readers delve into the fairy lore of six continents—from the remote jungle waterfalls of Mexico to the scented peach groves of China, fairies can be discovered in every corner of the world, and this book explains how. The book suggests a way to coax out the food-loving Kobito fairies of Japan (with cherry dumplings) and shares that the Jakui fairy of South America is attracted by music. Finding Fairies is an enchanting book for all who have the imagination and inspiration to believe in the fairies.
