The art of Richard Doyle (English, 1824–1883) offers lush glimpses into the world of the wee folk. Doyle’s fairies troop through meadows, twirl in the moonlight, and enlist birds and bugs in games and mischief. In this collection, Doyle’s whimsical illustrations are paired with poems by William Shakespeare, John Keats, Robert Louis Stevenson, William Butler Yeats, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Stevie Smith, and Langston Hughes, among others. Included with the book is a CD of classical music inspired by fairy stories.
