The Fairy Lady is often asked if fairies are real. Like many of the magical mysteries of this world, fairies show themselves in subtle ways. I always look for signs of fairies – sparkles on the water, petal paths, rings of flowers in the grass. You will know if you’ve seen a fairy by the excitement you feel when light flickers quickly through the air and your heart skips a beat. Here’s a photo taken by Jeff Wallin, the brother of Wendy Wallin Malinow, who illustrated our Fairy Box Books. We were at a signing at the famous Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon. A little girl asked if fairies were real. At that moment, she peeked inside a fairy box and Jeff snapped a picture. He managed to capture one of those magical moments I’m talking about. Look at the lower right hand side of the photo. There is a little girl looking down into a fairy box. Do you see the light coming out of the top of the box. Now ask yourself, are fairies real?
