How Hannah May Hocking was inspired to write the Fairy Tree
Hannah May Hocking was inspired to write and illustrate this book by a tree growing at the bottom of her garden. She had been so unwell, in and out of hospital, unable to leave the house so her garden became her sanctuary. One morning Hannah May Hocking noticed Daisy flowers had grown in the grass over night. The flowers had formed a path from the house to the tree at the bottom of the garden. The tree was unusual as it had grown with a hole right the way through it.
Hannah May Hocking imagined it to be gateway to another world. A world of fairies who wanted to help us. From that moment she named it the Fairy Tree and began to write the story in this book. She wanted people to know that even at the most scary and darkest times in ones life, if you take a breath and look around you, you will see there is always a tiny ray of light that will guide you to where you need to be.
