Brian & Wendy Froud Signing

Brian & Wendy Froud Launches Faerie's Tales - Plus Interview!

As well as their popular range of books on Faeries, Trolls and other creatures, Brian and Wendy Froud are well know for their work on movies such as 'Dark Crystal' and 'Labyrinth. Find out in our interview why Wendy is known as 'The Mother Of Yoda'!

Humans throughout history have always had special relationships and bonds with faeries, whether loving and helpful or at times destructive. This new book explores that complex relationship and the liminal state between the human and faery world where meeting and interaction occur. In Brian Froud's Faeries' Tales, readers encounter individual faeries, each with a story to uncover, as told by the faeries themselves. Many of the stories are familiar to humans, but the "true" story is told by the faeries. Similar to the Trolls fragments, the faeries' tales are coupled with portraits and interspersed with drawings and studies of the mysterious and enchanting folk who flit back and forth between the human world and theirs.
