“Nobody in the world will admit to having seen a fairy, but it doesn’t mean they are not there.”

“Fairies are kind and they always, always do the sweetest, gentlest things for you and for all that you love, but rarely will they be visible. But you just never know…”

Fairy mum, Starlight, is beautiful. Sheer gossamer wings with a duck-egg blue hue, her tinkling voice always sounds like tiny cymbals chinking as she laughs, forever checking her fairy family, imploring them to keep kindness and gentleness to the fore of every endeavour.

From their garden at number 55, the family of fairies, Starlight and Nimbus, their fairy children, Mimosa, Chicory and Chirrup, Lychen and Moss, weave in and out of the lives of various woodland and water creatures, “giants” and their pets, all along the leafy green and cool bridleway.

Calling, along the way, upon such firm friends as doves, Darcy and Dill and magpies, Mick and Maggie, Spinner the friendly spider, and Skeet the generous dog, the fairies cheerfully carry out rescues, avert danger, make gifts, and even bring love to two lonely foxes.

Tessa-Kate Curtis grew up in Hertfordshire, but now lives in Cambridgeshire with her husband Stuart, where she works full-time as a medical secretary. They live with their two dogs, Zeke and Nova, plus two large cats, Rocco and Tino – who think they are dogs. Tessa-Kate loves her weekends with Stu, particularly walking the dogs in woodlands or coastline, and exploring new trails. She enjoys swimming and cycling (occasionally), plus watching movies at the cinema – or at home. She is also really happy when burying her nose in an exceptionally good crime thriller novel.

    I bought this for my great granddaughter and followed it up by buying extra for other children in the family.
    Primrose is 3years old and loved having these stories read to her at bedtime, chatting about the characters and what they were doing. A real feel good book. Which takes your child to a place they dream of.
    Primrose enjoyed it so much, I downloaded a copy for myself and found it very well written and enjoyable, plus I can read it over and over again.

    Bought a copy for my granddaughter as she loves fairies, and ended up buying one for myself !! So well written with great illustrations too. Highly recommended

  • Emma Mccorkell

    A gorgeous book with lovely stories and illustrations. I had to have a read myself before I pass this onto my friends little girl for her birthday. Each story has a heartfelt and heart warming feeling. I hope there are more stories to come.

  • Tracey Biggs

    A truly magical story with beautiful illustrations. My class of four year olds are soaking up every page (as am I). A thoroughly enjoyable read.

  • Jane Reilly

    I bought Fairies at number 55 for my granddaughter for Christmas as she is very into fairies and loves reading. I have been reading it myself and really enjoyed the stories and adventures of the characters Tessa-Kate has written about. The illustrations are really sweet and enchanting.
