I had been searching for a children's pop-up storybook at the flea market for a while but with no luck of finding one in decent condition. There is something so magical and nostalgic and yet so simple, about pop-up books. So it was with great joy, when I popped into my local WHSmith for a magazine, that I managed to find this book while browsing their clearance section. In fact, I loved it so much, I returned the next day to buy another for a friend.
The book is styled as a journal-scrapbook belonging to Dulcie, a sixteen year old girl with fond memories of her and friend Cecilie's adventures looking for fairies when they were younger. The book includes postcards, cinema tickets, pop-up and removable letters chronicling the two friends' correspondence in their search for the flower fairies.
The book brought back such memories for me too. I loved the Flower Fairy books when I was a little girl and I think we still have them in our attic. I used to read the books over and over. So it was a great discovery to find this book on my local high street - I do believe you're never too old for fairies!
