Following in the footsteps of his popular Trolls and faeries books, Brian and Wendy Froud lead readers deeply into the world of Faeries. Humans throughout history have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores that complex relationship and the liminal state between the human and faery world where meeting and interaction occur. In Brian Froud's 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. Similar to the Trolls fragments, the faeries' tales are coupled with portraits and interspersed with drawings and studies of the mysterious and enchanting folk who flit back and forth between the human world and theirs.

Sure to please existing fans of the Froud team, who will probably look at this closely, this also works as a conversation-starting coffee-table book for browsers. --Booklist This elegant presentation of well-known and more obscure fairy tales from the point of view of the fairies combines the mysterious and magical with cold calculation and complexity: successful ingredients for sophisticated readers. --School Library Journal A beautiful and eerie book... --Tribune News Service A lovely package of visual fun we've come to associate with the Froud's work. --Locus magazine Nobody does fantasy art like the guy who gave us The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. --io9
