When I Was a Fairy

By Tom Silson
Illustrated by Ewa Poklewska-Koziello

When I was a fairy, I used to dance on daffodils. I used to bounce on blueberries and ride on raindrops. When I was a fairy, mountains were molehills. Back when I was a fairy … I’d almost forgot.

This picture book is a heart-warming tale about magical creatures young and old, and the love between a child and their grandparent. Bouncing, running, jumping and cartwheeling among the flowers - who is this adventurous sprite? Touching on themes of memory, magic and love between the generations, find out the secret of this energetic little fairy in this perfect book for reading together.

  • Touching on themes of dementia, growing old and grandparent relationships in a beautiful way
  • Fairies and magic an evergreen topic among children
  • Lyrical and nostalgic, perfect for bedtime reading
