Barbara Mary Campbell (CAM) BUTTERCUP FAIRY 1945 rare!
I recently sold this book by Mary Campbell (CAM). It's an extremely rare book, published in 1945. The story is of a fat fairy, who has been invited to a party being held by the fairy king.
She is too fat to move from her flower, so her friends build a sort of contraption to hoist here there. She managed to fall off, and lands on a hedgehog... causing her to 'explode'. It turns out she is thin - all the fatness was just air!
The fairy king, who had been rather bored of the whole party - thinks an exploding fairy is hilarious - and Buttercup gets some lovely new wings!
You can see more beautiful images in my collection (around the top of the set).
