Come to the Fairies' Ball by Jane Yolen

The fairies are giving a ball and everyone s invited. Don't be late, dress in your best, and come to the fairies' ball.

What I thought: Pure poetry! I can't stop admiring Yolen's way with words. The story was enchanting. The rhythm of the words is wonderful. They really capture the magic of fairies an the like. The almost begs to be read aloud. The illustrations are fantastic--so detailed. I looked them over several times.
