Diane Griffithabout this book: I told these stories to my own grandchildren who loved them so much that I wanted to share them with other children.
It was a way of teaching them without telling. They learnt reasons to do good things and why not to do bad things.
George 7 and his brother Freddie 6 share the same Daddy as Harvey 5 and Saffie 4.
They all love to listen to Granny's stories about the mystical things that go on in her garden during the night, although sometimes amazing things also happen during the day, when the children are there.
They learn simple lessons through the behavior of some of the fantasy characters. They 'see' the action and take part in the story and laugh with Granny, especially at the funny things that 'the silly fairy,' Dirty Gertie, says and does.
In the end the fairies who live with the Fairy Queen in the big cherry tree: the pixies who live with Mr. Ponkey, the King of the pixies, in The Wongilemma Tree: The water sprites who live in the pond, and the grumpy goblin who lives behind a big black stone, all come together in a magical setting to see the wedding of the Fairy Queen to Mr.Ponkey.
It ends with the Fairy Queen singing a lovely little song about wishes coming true, before they both fly away into a starry sky, on the back of a tiny white unicorn.
EVERY GRANNY SHOULD HAVE A MAGIC GARDEN!
