A magical midsummer bedtime story from the bestselling creator of much-loved In the Land of Fairies

It's a warm summer's night and Faith can't get to sleep. The curious little fairy feels magic is in the air and flies off to see who else is still awake.

Faith comes across a mother fox and her restless cubs, an elf family wide-awake in their tree root house, and the sandman collecting extra magic dust — no one can sleep tonight. But why? Finally, a moth prince leads the little fairy to a wonderful Midsummer Night's party and she discovers where the night-time magic has come from. Later on, tired from a night of dancing, Faith falls fast asleep.

This magical, dreamlike picture book from bestselling international illustrator Daniela Drescher will enchant and gently soothe young readers, making it perfect bedtime reading.
