The Fairy Ring
Or Elsie and Frances Fool the World

author: Mary Losure

The enchanting true story of a girl who saw fairies, and another with a gift for art, who concocted a story to stay out of trouble and ended up fooling the world. Mary Losure presents this enthralling true story as a fanciful narrative featuring the original Cottingley fairy photos and previously unpublished drawings and images from the family’s archives. A delight for everyone with a fondness for fairies, and for anyone who has ever started something that spun out of control.
“Well-written nonfiction that reads like a novel. . . . Secret believers of fairy stories will thoroughly enjoy this account.” — School Library Journal (starred review)
