The BLUE ROSE FAIRY BOOK, part compiled and part written by Maurice Baring, contains 12 children’s fairy tales.
These are:
The Glass Mender
The Blue Rose
The Story Of Vox Angelica And Lieblich Gedacht
The Vagabond
The Minstrel
The Hunchback, The Pool, And The Magic Ring
The Silver Mountain
The Ring
The Merchant's Daughter
The Cunning Apprentice
Orestes And The Dragon, and,
The Wise Princess
The stories are further brought to life by the 12 full-page colour illustrations by an unknown artist.
But why The Blue Rose Fairy Book? In nature there is natural absence of blue roses. They have come to symbolise mystery and a longing to attain the impossible, with some cultures going so far as to say that the holder of a blue rose will have his wishes granted. And so, we have a book full of magical stories of Kings and Queens, Princes and Princesses, dragons, gypsies and much, much more.
Don’t be surprised that when you have finished reading your young ones a story from this magical book that you feel a small tug at your sleeve with a request for “nutther please…?”

    "Simon Thorn is a hero worthy of a young Harry Potter, and readers are bound to be delighted." --Booklist on Simon Thorn and the Wolf's Den 
    For fans of Rick Riordan and Spirit Animals, this thrilling follow-up to Simon Thorn and the Wolf's Den continues the adventures of a boy who can shapeshift into an animal. 
    Simon Thorn only recently discovered that he's an Animalgam--one of a secret race who can shift into animals. Now, for the first time in his life Simon has real friends to train and study with at the secret Animalgam Academy. The only missing part is his mother, held captive by his evil grandfather, Orion, who's bent on taking over the animal world.  
    To rescue his mom, Simon must head cross-country with his friends, battling rogue Animalgams and their own doubts and torn loyalties along the way. But if Simon's going to succeed, he will need to keep Orion from gathering together the fragments of a terrible weapon, or the lives of everyone Simon loves will be at risk. 
    With plenty of action and adventure and characters full of heart, this story is perfect for fans of Rick Riordan and the Spirit Animals series.

    Welcome to an enchanted land ruled by unicorn princesses!  
    Cressida Jenkins, a unicorn-obsessed girl who is sure that unicorns are real, is invited to visit, and readers will be thrilled to journey to the Rainbow Realm along with her! In each story, Cressida is called to help a unicorn princess and her sisters in a magical adventure. 
    In the first story, a blundering wizard-lizard casts a spell that accidentally robs Princess Sunbeam of her magic yellow sapphire. Without it, she loses her powers--the ability to create light and heat. The only way to reverse the spell is for a human girl who believes in unicorns to find the yellow sapphire and reunite Sunbeam with her gemstone. Sunbeam ventures into the human world and enlists Cressida's help, who is thrilled to visit the Rainbow Realm. But finding Sunbeam's sapphire isn't quite as easy as she thought it would be . . . 
    This sweet series is full of sparkle, fun, and friendship.

There are so many feathered friends to meet in this children's spotter's field guide, published in collaboration with the RSPB, the largest wildlife conservation charity in Europe.
