Cornella Corn Fairy

I wrote Cornella Corn Fairy to display on my corn dolly stall at craft fairs. The book aims to answer all the questions that children have asked about corn dollies. 

Rural folklore enters the modern world when an old lady gives Katie a corn dolly. One Spring morning, like a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis, a small fairy climbs out of the corn dolly. Cornella introduces herself and tells Katie all about the magical world of corn dollies and fairies.
