Fairy Foals by Suzanah

Fairy Foals by SuzanahNot long after updating the blog banner to feature horses with butterfly wings, I received several packages from the publisher Sourcebooks, the same publisher who sent us book pile #1 from our last Muck the Book Pile giveaway. Included in the package was Fairy Foals by Suzanah, one of the featured picks in our updated catalog.

This beautifully illustrated, high quality book brings us into the world of Suzanah Rose Williamson, a 40 year-old woman who discovers a herd of winged foals in the enchanted garden of a country home she inherits from her Grandma, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Although picture books are typically geared to a younger reader, this one will appeal to a wide range of readers. The 90-plus page story is written in a journal style. Some pages tell the reader about each of the fairy foal herd members. Other pages have poetry or mini-stories about the herd’s antics. Each page brings the fantasy to life with sketches and full-color illustrations of the foals. As you can see below, the artwork is stunning.

Admittedly, I’ve never outgrown a love for picture books. I’ll be adding Fairy Foals to my holiday gift-giving list, and two of you will have a chance to win one of the copies sent by Sourcebooks in a pre-holiday giveaway next month. In the meantime, enjoy this glimpse into the world of Fairy Foals and visit the official website.
