J. M. Barrie’s blue little sillies

“[When] a new baby laughs for the first time a new fairy is born, and as there are always new babies there are always new fairies. They live in nests on the tops of trees; and the mauve ones are boys and the white ones are girls, and the blue ones are just little sillies who are not sure what they are.”

— J. M. Barrie, “Chapter 17: When Wendy Grew Up,” Peter Pan
