The Rose Fyleman Fairy Book - Rose Fyleman, Hilda T. Miller (illustrator)

1923 - Methuen & Co. Ltd., London - First Edition
There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!
They often have a dance on summer nights;
The butterflies and bees
Make a lovely little breeze,
And the rabbits stand about and hold the lights.
Did you know that they could sit upon the moonbeams
And pick a little star to make a fan?
And dance away up there
In the middle of the air
Well, they can!

A collection of Rose Fyleman’s well known short poems for young children, magically illustrated with twelve full-page colour plates and twelve line drawings by Hilda Miller.
