Originally published in 1918, this beautiful picture book is filled with sweet little flower children that look a lot like fairies but of course they are only "playmates of the fairies" so they don't always have wings. They are dressed in the most charming Victorian costumes including lace petticoats, bonnets, pinnafores, spats, and waistcoats. Each one represents a wild flower, rendered in satisfying detail by this talented illustrator and accompanied by a nostalgic little poem. The flowers are identified by their Latin names as well as their often quaint and colorful folk names such as Frostweed, Virgin's Bower, Pearly Everlasting, Baby Blue Eyes and Gold Thread.I love this book. The other three by the same writer, Bird Children, Flower Children, and Mother Earth's Children, are all similar but the Bird Children one is a bit creepy in spots. See my review on it if you are curious.
