This exquisite cloth-bound tiny gift edition faithfully recreates in beautiful detail the story Fougasse - the celebrated cartoonist - wrote in 1922 specially for the library of Queen Mary's Dolls' House. This charming and beautifully illustrated story tells the magical tale of a fairy blown out of Fairyland and into 1920s London. Alongside the miniature book, which measures just 30 x 40 mm, the box contains an informative booklet with a transcript and information about the Dolls' House. Queen Mary's Dolls' House is the largest and most famous in the world and has a library containing miniature works by all the major writers of the day.
