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…?”
