gnomes, fairies, and dwarves







-Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs first two photos, cover and a peek inside. Published by Wonder Books 1955 illustrations by Art Seiden

-Peter Pan illustrated by Marjorie Torrey and published in 1957 by Random House. This is the illo of miss tinkerbell pulling Wendy's hair.

-Fairy Elves by Robin Palmer and Pelagie Doane published by Henry Z. Walck Inc in 1964. This book is really cool because it is a dictionary of the little people with some old tales and verses about them. It really says that on the cover. :) From brownies to cluricaun's (a leprechaun gone on a spree).

-Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs color by number book. Published by Clover Coloring Books.

-Four Fairy Stories illustrated by Willy Schermele. Published in 1976 by Purnell and Sons. The cover illustration is by another artist and though similar to the drawings inside...somewhat lacking. When I first picked this book up I didn't expect it to be so amazing, but inside...WOW! It is just filled with page after page of little animals in clothing, elves, fairies, and bugs all living alongside trees + mushrooms with faces. Two of the illos above are from the book and it was really hard just to narrow it down to two!

Snow-White And Rose Red illustrated by Marjorie Cooper and published by Rand McNally.
