Featuring the award-winning images of photographer Lars van de Goor, Through the Fairy Door is an enchanting tale that follows a young girl on her magical quest through a fairy door, where she discovers that change starts with a tiny seed and no one is too small to make a difference.
In a busy, noisy town where everyone is always rushing about, there is a little girl named Willow. She sees the things that everyone is too distracted to notice—including a little bird who leads her to a tiny door in an old tree.
When she steps through the fairy door, she enters a magical Wild Wood, where everything has its time and place, and meets tiny fairies who nourish the earth and turn the seasons. The fairies show Willow the joy of living in harmony with nature . . . and returning home, she learns that change can start with a tiny seed.
With vibrant, luminous photographs, artist Lars van de Goor launches an ordinary child on an extraordinary journey to rewild her own home.

“Van de Goor’s digitally altered photographs of lush landscapes and quaint village scenes provide sumptuously detailed 3-D settings for this gentle adventure story. Tomai’s illustrations of brown-skinned Willow, diverse people and fairies, and forest animals have a contrasting two-dimensional quality to them. The artwork is intriguing. Visually engaging throughout.”
