Encyclopedia of Fairies by Theresa Bane

The book, Encyclopedia of Fairies in World Folklore and Mythology by Theresa Bane is such an excellent reference book! It's covering over 2,500 individual beings and species, some well heard of fairies and even learn about trolls! It's packed with ones from fairy tales and others heard from other places all over the world. Many religions that believe in certain fairies, you'll be able to find inside this book. Some of those locations are places such as Greece and Rome. They believed in these different types of Fairies and you'll learn about that with each little information posted beside each fairy's name. Plus, you may even learn about some more interesting details about each different fairy. Let's just say this book is extremely packed and covering so many fairies, even some I never even knew or heard of!
The best part about this encyclopedia as with many is that every fairy from folklore and mythology is organized in alphabetical order, making it simple to find which one if you want to search for any specific type or just find out about a new one any time of the day. Those who love learning about fairies will find this to be a wonderful book. I love how helpful the information about each really is and allows you to know where you might have heard or seen the name of that certain fairy, such as a book or even a different area in the world where they believe in that type of fairy. I think the one I know most of all and many will say they have heard of as well is the Tooth Fairy. So when you search under the T's for this specific fairy, you'll read how it once was said she would make sure the child's tooth will grow back after the one falls out, but now it is said she would leave money or a gift in place of the tooth under the pillow after retrieving the tooth the child lost. That is the most I knew about the Tooth Fairy, but it was cool to read about how she use to be known to make sure the tooth grew back. 
Finally, this is such an average in size book, nicely designed front cover, and a very interesting fairy reference book. I really enjoyed the detailed information on each fairy and can use this to refer too when I learn about any fairy from other regions of the world.
