ADAMS, Mass. — Local Author Kristen Demeo taps into the magic of the Berkshire Mountains Faerie Festival with a new book "The Garden Fairies."
 
"Last year I went to the festival and I just really enjoyed walking around and the atmosphere and I went home that night and wrote this book," she said. "It was inspiring to do."  
 
Demeo, who will read her book at the Berkshire Mountains Faerie Festival Saturday, said the book features a group of Fairies who all have different traits. 
 
"What I wanted to embed in this story was some content that kids really need. Like to believe in themselves and to know how to show love and embrace who they are," she said. "These fairies possess these traits…and the book acknowledges the belief of fairies and in hope of something special and magical." 
 
Demeo said the Fairies are inspired by some of her students at St. Stanislaus School. She said the book also has an educational edge and helps young students build vocabulary.
 
She said the book comes with a magic wand and she made sure to include a boy fairy.
 
"I Included a boy fairy in the book because the boys in my class loved the wands and were playing with them so I thought I needed a boy fairy," she said. "He collects treasure and I think boys can connect with him and I want them to know its ok to connect to magic."  
 
She said the book is interactive and has illustrations she made to color in. It also has a fairy field guide that is loaded with new vocabulary.
 
Demeo said she hopes the book empowers children.
 
"I want kids to know that if you give love you get love and that you should never give up on your dreams and that you are one of kind and special," she said. "I hope this book lets them know that they are good little people and that it is ok to believe in fairies. That is the gift of childhood."  
 
The book can be purchased at the Faerie Festival as well as Reynolds General Store, Water Street Books, Berkshire Emporium, Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum and Arrowhead.
