The Fairy Ring

By Mary Losure

“Well-written nonfiction that reads like a novel. . . . Secret believers of fairy stories will thoroughly enjoy this account.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

The enchanting true story of a girl who saw fairies, and another with a gift for art, who concocted a story to stay out of trouble and ended up fooling the world. Mary Losure presents this enthralling true story as a fanciful narrative featuring the original Cottingley fairy photos and previously unpublished drawings and images from the family’s archives. A delight for everyone with a fondness for fairies, and for anyone who has ever started something that spun out of control.

  • An amazing true story of fans of fairies and fairy lore.
  • Received 3 starred reviews, Bank St. College Best Children's Book of the Year, Booklist Editor's Choice, and Horn Book Fanfare.
  • Reads like a well-paced historical novel and includes the five original Cottingley fairy photos and unpublished drawings and images from the family's archives.
