About The Author - Ola Cohn MBE

Ola Cohn MBE (1892 - 1964) was a pioneer of modernist sculpture in Australia. Her “Fairies' Tree” in the Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne has delighted generations of children and adults. May 2014 is the 80th anniversary of the Fairies' Tree, from May 1931 to May 1934 Ola spent many hours of unpaid dedication to complete her carvings.

While working on carving the Fairies' Tree, Ola started to write her books about the tree and fairies. All together Ola published 4 books, “The Fairies' Tree” 1932, “More About The Fairies' Tree” 1933, “Castles In The Air” 1935 and “Mostly Cats” 1964.

We are delighted to announce that Ola Cohn's first three books have now been republished, “The Fairies' Tree”, “More About The Fairies' Tree” and “Castles In The Air”. The content of the three books have been kept true to the original, including illustrations and photographs.

Fairy stories are always for adults as well as for children, is the motto Ola Cohn prefixes to her "Castles in the Air," a story of Blossom's adventures in the bush, where Wagglewand, a mallee root, who comes to life and helps Blossom build her castle in the air. They had many more strange adventures amongst the fairy land, creatures in the course of their search for the magic white emu's egg.
