The Fairy Fly

Authored by Lori R. Lopez

This illustrated print edition of THE FAIRY FLY presents detailed artwork by the author. A Black Widow queen, a big bad Wolf Spider, and a Hit-Mantis are but a few of the obstacles for a spunky little spider who must find his way home through a strange land of giants in this witty fairytale fantasy for kids and adults.

Transported out of his element into a realm of dangers and foes, Spider is aided by the insects and arachnids he befriends, but only he can see the Fairy Fly. Is she real or imagined? This whimsical novel about finding oneself while feeling small in a big world takes a step back and several steps downward to peep at humanity from below. At the same time, the story is an allegory of the human condition: life and death matters, war and peace, our everyday struggles on a tiny scale. Part humorous, part philosophical, at times poetic . . . it celebrates a love for animals, books and words. View the planet from a different angle as you take a spiderwalk through the door to adventure.

This coming-of-age fairytale received BEST PUBLISHED YA SCIFI/FANTASY for 2013 at the San Diego Book Awards; YOUNG ADULT WINNER in the 2014 Great Southwest Book Festival; SECOND PLACE in Humor, HONORABLE MENTIONS in Animals/Pets and Best Photography/Illustrations from the 2015 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards; HONORABLE MENTION in Young Adult Fiction from the 2014 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards.
