Birdie and His Fairy Friends

Book cover

I recently had the pleasure of reading Birdie and His Fairy Friends by Margaret T. Canby, and I must say it was a delightful and charming read. The story follows a young boy named Birdie who befriends a group of fairies in the forest near his home.

The characters in the book are wonderfully crafted, each with their own unique personalities and quirks. Birdie is a lovable protagonist who is curious and brave, while the fairies are mischievous and magical. I found myself becoming attached to each character and rooting for them throughout the story.

The writing style is simple and engaging, making it easy for readers of all ages to enjoy. The imagery used to describe the forest and the fairies is vivid and enchanting, transporting me to a magical world where anything is possible.

Overall, Birdie and His Fairy Friends is a heartwarming tale that celebrates friendship, courage, and the wonders of the natural world. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a charming and imaginative read.

Book Description:
This book contains 13 stories for little children, about a little boy named Birdie and his adventures out in nature with the fairies. The stories include "The Frost Fairies", made famous by a very similar short story entitled "The Frost King", penned by deaf/blind Helen Keller when she was a young girl. Helen's story was so similar to Margaret Canby's tale, that Keller was accused of plagerizing. Her teacher Anne Sullivan finally pieced together that a friend had read Margaret’s story to Helen years before, and she had internalized many details without remembering the story having been read to her. This episode helped reveal what Mrs. Canby described as Helen's "wonderfully active and retentive mind", and she was honored for her story to be so well remembered .
