Humans have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores the complex relationship and the liminal state between the human and faery world where interaction occurs. In Faeries Tales, readers encounter individual faeries, each with a story to uncover, as told by the faeries themselves. Many of the stories are familiar to humans, but the ‘true’ story is told by the faeries.

Wendy Froud is a doll artist, sculptor and puppet-maker, best known for her work creating creatures for the Jim Henson films The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, as well as her work on the Star Wars series, for which she was the fabricator of Yoda.
