Here's a lighthearted approach to the world of the little people, with attention to the bad things that sometimes emanate from them. Author Fay Langmore tells why it is not a law of physics but bad fairies who dictate that dropped bread nearly always falls butter-side down. For those who wonder why the whole world sometimes seems against them, this book is an unvarnished overview of all the malign magic influences that prey on their weaknesses. See, for instance, is the Translocation Fairy--a creature who goes around moving things from where we just put them to some new place where we'll never find them. Here too is Zitania, the fairy who plants an instant, ugly cold sore or pimple on a girl's face just as she's preparing for a date. Among the worst of the bad fairies is Puck--not the Shakespearian Puck, but the fairy of gas, snoring, hiccups, sexual dysfunction, and all the most embarrassing bodily upsets. These and many other bad fairies are profiled and enhanced with clever duotone illustrations. Added features include a Genealogy Index, explaining how all bad fairies are related, plus a glossary of fairy terms.

About the author (2004)

Fay Langmore spent much of her early life wondering why her parents gave her the disagreeable name, Fay. She finally concluded that they had been tampered with by fairy folk, which is why she has now decided to warn others of the havoc wreaked by the pesky little people, otherwise known as bad fairies.
