Authors of Fairy Houses Fame Release FAIRY HOUSES … UNBELIEVABLE!:
A photographic journey of the national fairy house phenomenon
Lee, NH: Author Tracy Kane and Photographer Barry Kane announce the release of FAIRY HOUSES … UNBELIEVABLE!, a photographic compilation of fairy houses from around the country.

Fairy houses are small structures for fairies and nature’s friends to visit. Fairy houses are made out of natural materials such as sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pine cones and nuts. Ranging from rustic to intricate, these whimsical habitats are built by children, families, gardeners and nature lovers reflecting their creativity, joy and pride.
The wave of fairy house building throughout the country was inspired by Tracy Kane—Lee, New Hampshire resident and author of The Fairy Houses Series® of books. The series has popularized this wonderful outdoor activity that originally started on islands off the coast of New England. Barry Kane’s photographs featured in FAIRY HOUSES … UNBELIEVABLE! capture the magic and creativity of fairy houses from around the country. Many featured are from author fairy house workshops, events and tours.
