Don’t be fooled by Tinkerbell and her pixie dust – the real fairies were dangerous. In the late 17th century, they could still scare people to death. Little wonder, as they were thought to be descended from the Fallen Angels, and to have the power to destroy the world itself. Despite their modern image as gauzy playmates, the fairies feared by ordinary people caused them to flee their homes, to revere fairy trees and paths, and to abuse or even kill infants or adults held to be fairy changelings. However, as changeable as changelings themselves, fairies have transformed to become like no other supernatural beings. And in this book, Richard Sugg tells the story of how the fairies went from terror to Tink.
