"Graham's not-too-subtle message about slowing down to enjoy the small wonders of life will resonate with children and adults alike." —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Annabelle's dad has little time for fairies, which he assures her she won't find in the cement and the weeds of their urban backyard. But Annabelle has lots of time, so she keeps looking, even under her baby brother, Sam. And one day she finds what she's looking for: a thumbsize fairy child named Jethro Byrd, whose family has made an awkward landing in a tiny ice-cream truck among some discarded bottles and cans. What a wonderful chance to invite all the Byrds for tea with Mommy and Daddy! But why, Annabelle wonders — as the fairies fiddle and sing and dance and whistle away among the cake crumbs — are she and Sam the only ones who can see them?

About the Author

Bob Graham is the award-winning author and illustrator of many books for children, including MAX, an acclaimed story about a family of superheroes who can fly. About JETHRO BYRD, FAIRY CHILD, he says, "I'm surprised to find another flying family in my books, this time a family of fairies. I don't see fairies too often these days, certainly not during working hours. To see fairies you need time to spare, time to think about not too much at all."
