"The Legend of the Fairy Stones" Wins a Purple Dragonfly Book Award for

Best Interior Design

Story Monsters LLC, a literary resource for teachers and librarians, has honored "The Legend of
the Fairy Stones," by Kelly Anne White, with a Purple Dragonfly book award in the Best Interior
Design category.

Baltimore, MD, August 01, 2019 --( "The Legend of the Fairy Stones," by author and collage
artist Kelly Anne White, recently received a Purple Dragonfly book award from Story Monsters LLC, a
respected resource for teachers and librarians. The picture book, which features nearly 200 digitally
collaged public domain and Creative Commons images, was recognized for Best Interior Design. "The
Legend of the Fairy Stones" cleverly blends its astounding mixed bag of beautiful artwork with originally
authored lyrical verse to share the story of real-life staurolite crystals.

Woodland lore, passed along through oral tradition, says these cross-shaped stones formed from the tears
of fairies after they learned that Jesus had died. Once White introduces the stones into the narrative of
"The Legend of the Fairy Stones," she has hidden one fairy stone on every page thereafter for readers to
find in similar fashion as "Where's Waldo" or "I Spy."

"The most magical thing occurred shortly after my book won the award," says White. "I was doing a book
signing at a festival, and I'd set my Purple Dragonfly award certificate atop a box next to my signing
table. A real dragonfly came along and rested on my award, right next to the certificate's dragonfly
emblem, lolling there for hours. Occasionally it fluttered up to sit on the spine of my book, which
happens to also have a dragonfly on the front cover. That was truly enchanting."

Kelly Anne White is also author of "The Bible Adventure Book of Scavenger Hunts" and other books for
children, teens, and young adults. White is a professional book editor as well, having edited hundreds of
projects for HarperCollins, Kirkus Media, and Christian Editor Connection, and she is former longtime
executive editor of Girls' Life magazine. White conducts publishing courses at Morgan State University
and is on staff at Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, Maryland. Learn more about the author at

"The Legend of the Fairy Stones" is available for purchase on, at Barnes and Noble, and
wherever books are sold.
