Brian Froud's Faeries' tales by Brian Froud( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following in the footsteps of Trolls, Brian and Wendy Froud lead readers deep into the world of faeries. Humans throughout history have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores that complex relationship and the liminal state between the human and faery world where interaction occurs. In Brian Froud's Faeries' Tales, readers encounter individual faeries, each with a story to uncover, as told by the faeries themselves. Many of the stories are familiar to humans, but the "true" story is told by the faeries. Similar to the Trolls fragments, the faeries' tales are coupled with portraits and interspersed with drawings and studies of the mysterious and enchanting folk who travel back and forth between the human world and theirs

Sneezle seeks Uncle Starbucket to ask for a task to prepare for the celebration, but the good faery only tells him to follow his good heart to learn what he can do best. Then Sneezle learns that Titania is under a spell and can't be wakened. A powerful plot is unfolding -- a plot that threatens Old Oak Wood to its very core.
