Flower Fairies Colouring Book

First published in 1923, The Flower Fairies were initially a set of illustrated books by Cicely Mary Barker, with a poem about each fairy and a botanically accurate drawing of the flower each fairy is named after.

They became so popular that a range of merchandise was launched, including story books,  activity books like this one, and dolls, as can be seen on the front cover of this colouring book.
