"Little people"--fairies or otherwise--have always captured people's imaginations. Now, little people are showing up in teensy street art pieces around England and Italy. They are the creation of Slinkachu, whose blog is called Little People - A Tiny Street Art Project.
Here at the library, we have many, many books featuring little people--from Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift in our adult section [F SWI], to The Littles series books by John Peterson in children's [J PET]. If fairy-type little people are your thing, there's the Daisy Meadows series (Pet Fairies, Weather Fairies, Jewel Fairies, etc.) [J MEA]. For little dolls-come-to-life, there's The Doll People by Ann M. Martin [J MAR].
And, if you're looking for something to do with the kids one rainy summer's day, try constructing little people art pieces of your own to display under your rhododendrons!
Many thanks to Slinkachu for permission to use photos from his blog!
