Item description for Finn and the Fairies by Alessandra Toni Licia Oddino...
Everyone in Aran Village believes in fairies --- everyone but Finn the tailor. When hens don't lay or cows dry up, the villagers blame the fairies, and take extra care not to anger the creatures. Finn just laughs. "What foolish superstitions!" he declares. When King Bertrand announces a royal ball to find a wife for his son, Finn's talents as a tailor are in great demand. But much to his amazement, it's not just the girls of the kingdom who need new gowns! How can he keep these mischievous new customers happy? Finn's comical efforts to stay in the fairies' good graces make for a lively and delightful story.

Reviews - What do customers think about Finn and the Fairies?
A story about an old dressmaker in medieval times who became the friend of fairies. Jan 26, 2007
A delightful story book for children ages 4-8. The illustrations were great, and the text was very well done. They worked well together, too. There were 24 scenes to this book, most of them were two-pages wide, but not all. This book is probably best read to a young child. And from time to time the reader will show the child the pictures that correspond to the text.
The story is about a dressmaker named Finn who is good at what he does for a living. Most of his customers believe in fairies, but not Finn. When the king of Finn's country wants to marry off his son the prince, Finn is commissioned to make lots of dresses for a "wife-finding" event. Interestingly, Finn ends up making dresses for both humans and fairies.
I would have liked the book better if the fairies had not cut up all the original dresses. And I also would have liked it better if the fairies had attended the "wife-finding" event. But I liked the story a lot and I'm sure young children will, too. 5 stars!
