Celebrate the life of Australia's beloved May Gibbs through the eyes of a little girl with a big imagination.

In a land far away, where fairies and pixies and elves live deep in the woods, a little girl is born. Her family call her Mamie.

Mamie loves to sing, dance and paint with her magical friends. Her days are like a modern-day fairy tale. But when her family moves to the bottom of the world, Mamie's life is turned upside down.

From green fields drenched with rain to hot skies and dusty plains, will she ever find new fairy friends in this strange and beautiful land?

From the talented Tania McCartney comes an exquisite book that celebrates the life of renowned children's author and illustrator, May Gibbs.
