Oxford University Press celebrates the classics with help from The Book Fairies!

The Book Fairies have been sharing some great children’s classics today!

We shared copies of Treasure Island, The Wind in the Willows, Little Women and The Secret Garden for lucky finders to stumble upon. Aren’t these new Oxford Children’s editions just beautiful?

“Might I,” quavered Mary, “might I have a bit of earth?”

Copies of The Secret Garden were hidden in wild public gardens all around the country.

“Seaward ho! Hang the treasure! It’s the glory of the sea that has turned my head.”

Copies of Treasure Island were hidden at nautical locations all around the UK!

“There seemed to be no end to this wood, and no beginning, and no difference in it, and worse of all, no way out”

The Oxford Children’s Classic edition of Wind in the Willows was left in perfect locations today.

“Women, they have minds, and they have souls, as well as just hearts”.

Beautiful copies of the classic Little Women were shared in locations to match the plot by book fairies around the UK.
