The Fairies of Nutfolk Wood by Barb Bentler Ullman

Pastoral and warm; this is a book to delight lovers of fairies and fantasy.  At first I was reluctant to believe there could be a fresh take on a world of little people.  After all it has been done with The Littles and The Borrowers.  The title didn’t lead me to believe it would be a satisfying read but it exceeded my expectations and made me a believer.  A delightful read with quirky and interesting characters, a lush setting and engaging plot line.  Definitely worth purchasing for a K-8 library. Great companion for ” The Higher Power of Lucky” as it has similar themes.
