Book Giveaway: Where Do Fairies Go When It Snows?

Everyone knows fairies love spring flowers and summer sun, but what happens when autumn comes and the days get shorter and colder? Now, Liza Gardner Walsh, acclaimed author of the Fairy House Handbook and Fairy Garden Handbook, explores the matter in a charming children’s picture book of rhyming questions. Combined with delightful illustrations by Hazel Mitchell this whimsical book will help children discover just where fairies go when it snows and offer a subtle lesson about the importance of helping one another.



The idea came to me on a walk where I was actually trudging about in the snow. I found a perfect little tree hollow and thought what a good fairy house it would make.  But then I wondered if the fairies hung around in the winter or if they took a long nap or headed south. The questions kept coming and I felt like it might be a story. It helped that I was teaching preschool at the time and probably heard about three hundred questions a day!



Liza Gardner Walsh has written numerous books for children , including Muddy Boots, Treasure Hunter’s Handbook, Fairy Houses All Year, and Where Do Fairies Go When it Snows? illustrated by Hazel Mitchell. Liza has been a children’s librarian, high school English teacher, a Museum Educator and she holds an MFA from Vermont College. She lives with her family in Camden, Maine.

Thank you Lisa for sharing your journey with us and offering WHERE DO FAIRIES GO WHEN IT SNOWS? to one lucky winner.

  14. Not only do I love fairies, but I make fairy gardens. I’m always on the lookout for small little items that fairies would love. Now the friend, a floral designer who taught me all about making miniature gardens and settings for the fairies, has learned that she has cancer in three different areas. I would like this book not only for me to read but also for my Chief Fairy who taught me how to keep fairies happy and needs an extra boost of fairy dust and miracles now.


  15. What a delightful story! I have often wondered about what fairies do when the winter arrives. It’s nice to know that others have found some answers. I would love to win this delightful book for my grandchildren to read.


  16. Preschoolers ask so many questions. I have been looking for some good fairy stories and this one looks very appealing!
