For thousands of years girls have been crossing bright meadows to enter dark forests. They’ve allowed their legs to be gently whipped by buttercups and asters, and they’ve often stopped to crouch down in search of four-leaf clovers and wild strawberries. They’ve climbed turnstiles, stone walls, hedges, and barbed wire fences, with or without dogs tagging along to guard their virtue. Weather, climate, flora, fauna, and geography have varied, but this part of the experience is always the same: Once the girl enters the forest, everything changes.
~from the introduction to They Tell My Tale to Children Now to Help Them to Be Good
Our faerie volumes are designed to remind you of the books that sat on your bedside table when you were very young, books gleaned from the library or having arrived as birthday and Christmas gifts from adults who loved Faerie and who felt a surge of nostalgic joy at the thought of sharing it with a small and wondering being, the kind of being for whom Faerie lives on.
The first book in this imprint is They Tell My Tale to Children Now to Help Them to Be Good: A Bedtime Book for Grownup Children. It has set the tone, and several similar books are in the works.
