While it’s true that fairy folk love a good garden and take great pleasure in a tulip, there are dozens of beasties who fall under the fairy domain that are not quite as delightful as the quintessential flower fairy. This book is an exploration of the many things that go bump in the night near the fairy mound. Along with an exploration of folklore and historical literature, readers will delight in fairy tales that demonstrate everything from striking a bargain with a fairy to staving off changelings to laughing with the dwarves.

Included are fairy tales and myths from Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Scandinavia plus classic stories by Thomas Crofton Croker, Joseph Jacobs, Clara Stroebe, the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Yei Theodora Ozaki, and others on goblins, trolls, gnomes, pookas, changelings, banshees, and more!

Chapters include:

  • Fairy, Fae, Faerie Way: What Is a Fairy, Anyway?
  • The Hand That Rocks the Cradle: Changelings and Baby Snatchers
  • I’m Not Drunk, It’s My Pooka: The Legacy of the Trickster Fairy
  • I Begged You Not to Stay: What You Might Meet at the Crossroads
  • A Fear of Little Men: Leprechauns, Hobgoblins, House Elves, and Other Little Things

If you think fairies are merely delicate beings who follow you about on gossamer wings, you are in for quite a shock: the kingdom of the fairy is one of vengeance, thievery, trickery, and wild creatures. Consider yourself warned!
