Fairy researcher Jonathan Wright is the author of Whos Behind The Fairy Door? (Wright), and has been investigating the flying fantasy creatures since 1993, when he found a tiny door in his home, underneath the stairs.
The diminutive door turned out to be the entrance to a magical wonderland, a little residence where he claims urban fairies live.
Wright says theres substantial evidence pointing to the presence of fairies in his walls.
Amazingly, when you open the fairy door, a tiny spiral staircase and a mini fireplace can be seen inside.
But the mysterious fairy dwellings dont end there.
Over the years, similar small doors have appeared overnight in Wrights home around his kitchen and fireplace.
Several little doors have also popped up all over shops and libraries in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
He believes the Tinkerbells are simply setting up camp in the places they feel most comfortable, where people are open to the idea of their existence.
Though he has yet to actually spot a fairy, Wright has reason to believe theyre fans of sweets like jelly beans, because every time someone leaves one on their doorstep, it vanishes.
