The Grumpy Fairies hide all around the UK thanks to The Book Fairies!

Our first official UK campaign since lockdown, book fairies were excited to be hiding this gem of a book written and illustrated by Bethan Stevens!

The UK book fairies were thrilled to get back out there hiding books! What a great title for us, too!

About the book:

Deep in the depths of the forest, under rustling leaves, live the fairies.

You probably think that fairies are good, kind and sweet.

Well, a lot of them are. These helpful fairies take care of the forest and they’re happy to do it.

But I’m sorry to tell you that some of the fairies, particularly the littlest ones, are GRUMPY. I mean proper grumpy. I mean foot-stompy, frowny, bottom-lip-sticking-outy kind of grumpy. I mean ‘it’s just one of those days’ grumpy. But these grumpy fairies better watch out. There’s a goblin about, and grumpy fairies happen to be a goblin’s favourite food… This wonderful, funny debut will bring a smile to the smallest (and grumpiest) of children.

These Grumpy Fairies were hidden on a beautifully sunny day, from deep down south of England all the way up to the Outer Hebrides!
