    Default Importance of Fairies

    In the beginning of the book, MS says
    "As you read and look carefully at the illustrations, if you believe in Fairies, you may find clues".
    Can we take the "believe in fairies" line literally, or could it mean "trust in fairies"?
    This would seem to reinforce the idea that we should follow the pointing fairies.
    My question is, do we trust all fairies equally?
    Perhaps this is why Ye Nomenclature of Faeries is included, to give us hints as to which fairies we should trust.
    For example, it clearly says that Flower Faeries are least mischievous, and don't usually play tricks on people.
    Pickenrooters don't pay attention to what they do, so they may not be aware that they are not clearly pointing to a letter.
    It's clear that fairies will provide the solution.
    By the end of the book, Zac "believes" (trusts) in fairies, and I think this is how he was able to find the pieces.
    The question to us now is what are they telling us.
    Just a thought about fairies.

    I posted about the differences of the faries on the Q4T board, wondering if we should *ignore* the things Pickensrooters point at. But then, they *all* could be mischievious... Just some are more so than others... Hmmm

    Interesting, that someone posted somewhere here, that the Pickensrooters could be 'red herrings' (because they're red-heads).
    Red-Hairings? LOL

    When Yorah is sending them to steal the jewels, from Rusful she mentions (on pg. 62) that "She knew she could trust the Flower Fairies and the Pickensrooters. She told the Kookenstoopits just to stay out of the way."

    I'd forgotten about that! Thanks for bringing it up!

    Off-topic, but on the *same page*:
    "Pook found himself alone in the dark, empty room, staring at a knothole."

    I wonder why?

    Just a thought, but this is one of the ideas that has been rattling around in my head, what if it changes, based on the story, like at the beginning you can only follow flower fairies, then after that, when yorah says she could trust the flower fairies and the pickensrooters, you can follow their signs, then when zac blieves in faires all of them are helpful, don't know, what do yall think?

    Default Ye Nomenclature of Faeries

    Could the picture on the cover of the book, Ye Nomenclature of Faeries could possible mean to reverse the characteristics of each type of faery?
