"I'm often asked what was my favourite Roadshow moment and I think the Cottingley fairies has to be it.It was so unexpected and so exciting, one of those moments that still sends shivers down my spine. During the filming I felt that I might not get through the item, such was its impact on me."
Paul Atterbury, Antiques Roadshow Highlights (April 2009)
"Thank you, Thank you for the touching Cottingley Reflections, this is the first book I was compelled to read in one sitting (immediately after opening the parcel). I'm not the most eloquent chap but Id just like to say Frances memoirs were just wonderful, I wept but I also had a giggle. Thank you so much."
M Bowen, Yorkshire (first official customer of the book)

I'm just a normal 30 something working man. I have no particular interest in fairies but everything about this tale captured both my imagination and heart since I was a boy

"My interest in Cottingley got sparked by the movie “Fairy Tale A True Story”.
I started to collect every bit of information around this captivating story that I could find, including a coloured glass slide of the Cottingley beck. Since then I have collected books and magazines: Doyle, Gardner, Cooper, The Unexplained –
BUT Cottingley Reflections outshines them all!"
