Title: Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition
Series: Lady Cottington
Author: Brian Froud
Rating: 4/5 stars
OK, I admit, this is cheating on my reading challenge just a little bit. I read the original edition of Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book earlier in the year after I received the next 2 books in Brian Froud's "series" of Lady Cottington books for Christmas. I found this edition at an outlet store for $4 and couldn't pass it up. In addition to the original text, the new 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition comes with new cover art, a new foreword, 8 additional pages of story, a DVD mockumentary about Lady Cottington and her unique ability to trap fairies in her scrapbook and a new pressed fairy window cling (which I admit to having the first one in my car now - I have it on the corner of my windshield, so that it doesn't look so much as a pressed fairy as a fairy that has been smashed on my windshield whilst driving down the road). It's a very witty and clever book, and the drawings of the pressed fairies are hysterical.
I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
