Foul Faeries

Join Lily-May on an adventure she’ll never forget.

But when foul faeries kidnap Lily-May will they ever make it back home?

Why Faeries and not Fairies?

“Fairies are kind and pure-hearted mythical creatures whereas the faeries are evil, horrid and terrifying mythical creatures. Fairies are quite mischievous and they play around but are not dangerous whereas faeries are very mischievous and they are often dangerous.”

Hare Today, Gone Tomorrow

Young Lily-May has always been fascinated by hares, they’re her favourite native Irish animal. But it’s not just their behaviour and looks she likes; she loves the stories her grandad tells her about the hares being shapeshifters. Tales of how the Celtic warrior Oísin injured a hare whilst hunting and followed it only to find a beautiful woman and many more like it.

A determined Lily-May forms a plan, going through their secret tunnel into the magical wild alone, without Johnny or Ruairi. She is going to find out the truth about the hares once and for all. But has her curiosity put her in grave danger?

Suitable for 8 – 12 year olds.
