Shout-Out: The Little Fairy Sister

The Little Fairy Sister is a real fairy story of Bridget's adventures among the wee people. She meets the most delightful little creatures: the Dragon-fly, the Kookaburra, the Lizard, the Teddy Bears, the Pelican, as well as the Mannikins, the Merman, and of course the Fairies.

This facsimile of The Little Fairy Sister, popular with children of the 1920s, has been reproduced by the National Library of Australia from an early edition of the book.

Ida Rentoul Outhwaite's enchanting illustrations will appeal to children as much today as they did yesterday.
