Forgot to Mention

I forgot to mention in my last blog about a wonderful app that was recently produced by a group of artists in Chagford– well -an artist, a writer and a fabulous technician -Steve Dooley, Sam North and Bobby Gilbert. It is a retelling of The Wind In The Willows, especially for the brave new world of electronic devices. The website is: www.thewindinthewillowsapp.com  It is just enchanting! Please take a look at it if you get the chance.

Here’s a photo I just took of Elfie having a little nap with a troll who is coming to New York with us. I think the troll is trying to reserve his strength for the journey. I haven’t told him that he’ll be able to sleep on the plane (or that he’ll be in this position for the next week or so). He looks a bit like “Lindow Man” the preserved bog person when he’s all curled up like that. I always feel a bit guilty curling them up so tightly for travel but it really is the safest way. He’ll have a good stretch when we get there. Elfie just seems to like the company. Buster isn’t always so accommodating!


  1. The Wind in the Willows is fabulous, although I am a Luddite without Kindle. The Mr Badger I am making thinks it is quite impressive for a new fangled doodad.

  2. Dear Wendy, first of all thank you very much to you and Brian who give life to these little people I have in my mind since I was a child. I write you from France (sorry if I make some mistakes...) I would have so much things to tell you but I will be brief for this time. Friend of mine has a french book publishing house in Paris about spiritual life , he fell in love with "The fairies Oracle" I showed him. We don't have this oracle in a french traduction here and he would be VERY interest to publish it, so he tried to contact Simon & Schuster but not answer... So I try on my way on this blog and maybe you will find my message and maybe help us. This is my E mail for any questions and more details about the french publishing house: maialedissez@gmail.com . In the hope of receiving an answer from you both. With all my love. PS: Thank you for you dvd about making doll, I gave life to my own red hair fairy... Maïa le Dissez

  3. My heart stop beating going in the Realm of Froud. Thank you Wendy and Brian for share yours Art here! And thanks to Elfie and Buster for posed for this photo, during... a nap! :)
    Fairy Greetings from Rome (and sorry for my bad english!)
