New York: David Fickling Books, 2004. As New in an As New dustjacket. Mauve boards with a blue, silver-stamped backstrip. Octavo. 448pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact. ".A gritty and captivating story of courage and strength against terrible odds, this is the story of Midge, left to stay with her eccentric uncle during the holidays, and her adventures with the Various, a band of fairies. The existence of the Various, who are strange, wild, and sometimes even deadly, has been kept secret since the beginning of time. But when their world begins to clash with the human world, they are threatened with extinction. This wonderfully imaginative story of love and loyalty is the first in a powerful trilogy that readers won't be able to put down."

*It is a fact, an absolute fact, that there are creatures on the surface of this earth that have never been observed by man... We may think we have seen all that there is to be seen on this tiny planet of ours. We most certainly have not.* There have been stories of the "little people" - piskies, fairies, Jack O'Lanterns, call them what you will - ever since the world began. Quiet rumors and whispered hearsay are all they amount to, until a twelve-year-old child discovers the truth, hidden away among the briars and brambles high above the Somerset wetlands. The truth is strange and wild - and sometimes deadly... *You have been granted three wishes, and* The Various *is but the first.*
