High Summer Read - A - Thon Mini Challenge - Travel

This mini challenge is brought to us from Book Snob.

As I said before I am reading The Good Fairies of New York by Martin MillarThe Good Fairies of New York

In this challenge we are to tell you with picture and  a little description where the book is taking place.

See there are two fairies that have been exiled from Scotland. (I have never been to Scotland this is only place in the book that is mentioned that I have never been but doesn't it look lovely)

These drunken fairies end up in New York City which is some what of a wonder to them.  Have lived in Ireland, Scotland and England.

The Fairies spend time with there new human friends Dinnie and Kerry in central park.  Dinnie and Kerry are only one of the few people in New York that can see fairies.   Some homeless people see them too.  Some of the homeless keep dying while in the park. 10 to count so far.

The one fairy Morlog  who has attached herself to Kerry finds himself in trouble with the "yellow" fairies of New York's Chinatown.

The fairy, Heather, that has attached itself to Dinnie is in trouble with the Italian fairies in Little Italy.

There are a whole bunch of other fairies looking for these two fairies not to mention the spirits.  This book can be a little confusing at time but it is very different.
