There’s something about the tone of this book that makes you inclined to believe everything it says. I found myself almost wanting to take notes about placing coins on the floor to detect good and bad fairies and when it is appropriate to wear your clothes inside out. Ms. Blume has the ability to make you believe in the impossible. No small feat for a book of medium size. Fun and original.

When one strays into a foreign land, it is advisable to have a native guide on hand. But what do you take with you when the foreign land in question is your own backyard? For that, you will need to turn to an expert. And the expert in the case of city fairies and their kin is Miss Edythe McFate. With great relish, Miss McFate shares with the reader many helpful tips and tricks on dealing with fairies. And not just any fairies, mind, but the ones that have adapted to large city centers like the heart of New York City itself. In this book, a reader will encounter eight short cautionary tales (some more cautionary than others) and, between those chapters, practical advice regarding fairies and their day-to-day lives. Sometimes funny, sometimes dire, McFate/Blume weaves a new look at fairies in the city and leaves the reader wanting more. I’ve no doubt that a sequel cannot be far behind.
