I’m trying to find a copy of a beautifully illustrated storybook I had a a child in the 1960s called Fairy One Wing, which I loved very much. This is the exact title. Does anyone have a copy or know the publisher?

  • Hi ,You have provided a specific title which is great . Even so as much additional information as possible not simply the title : the book content and appearance of book itself : cover art , illustration , publsiher , dates if known . As Sherlock Holmes was wont to say at the start when interviewing clients " Omit no detail however slight". This wiki is helpful : literature.stackexchange.com/tags/identification-request/info – schweppz

  • Asking whether people personally own copies is off-topic. Asking how to purchase/acquire a copy is also off-topic. Asking for the name of the publisher, however, is on-topic. Would you like to focus the question onto the publisher, then?

    Hi and welcome to Literature Stack Exchange. Please take a look at the guidance for identification requests and edit your question to include any additional information you can remember. E.g., what color and size was the book? How many pages? Was it a newly published book when you had it, or a book that had been published earlier? What was the story line? What werre the illustrations like? Such details can help us narrow down the book and identify it. Thanks!

Could the story have been part of a book called Fairyland Treasury, The One Winged Fairy and Other Tales?

It has about five stories about fairies by different authors. Luisa Willoughby, Rene Cloke, Julie Cavalea. The book is blue with a little girl opening a chest on the front cover. The story about one wing features (among other insects) a lady bird family with a ladybird called Billy.
