Milly Hope was born in the village of Whimbury to be the Crossover Child of Fae legend. Her destiny is to be able to cross over from human to fae and back again whenever she chooses. But her ability to do that will only be within her powers if the first 'Crossover' takes place before her 7th Birthday.

There is a responsibility, therefore, for the fae community of Whimbury to prepare her for this event. She will need to understand the history, legends, myths and folklore of the faeries in order to become truly faery at the right moment.

This book of short stories and fae documents is designed to give the reader an insight into those legends and folklore that Milly has to learn, as part of her preparation. They include the Fae Creation legend and popular songs and poems of the fae community, including extracts from the epic prose poem 'Paradise Mislaid'. Many of these have been subsequently adapted and adopted by humans, though very few realise it.

Also included here is the story of Milly's first Christmas - her first staging post on the journey to become the Crossover Child.
