Neerina, Fairy Queen of Halloween
A fairy to celebrate all ghoulish things.The greeting card features a lovely poem to entertain grown-ups and little ones. Nereena is also the star of our first book and iPad app Nereena, the Fairy Queen of Halloween. She is a very special fairy—as a matter fact, so far, she is the only Fairy Queen.
Fairies have been resident in the human imagination for many centuries. In fact, their very existence relies on being imagined. The FantaFairies series of books, drawings and other artifacts exist to preserve and encourage that magical human energy that makes the existence of fairies possible, and makes our human lives more interesting and enjoyable.
Many know of the improbable city of Venice, Italy, perched off of the northeastern Italian coast, just barely keeping its head above the rising Adriatic Sea. This city, too, exists and survives (and some would say fully depends) on the imagination and dreams of mankind. This makes it the natural place of origin for an entire species of fairy, called FantaFairies, who issue forth from this improbable place to embrace and protect the far-flung cities, towns and hamlets, the holidays, the music, art and other yearnings most precious to the mortal humans chasing their dreams across the surface of the Earth.
