Guernsey Pouques – Old Homepage

Load More...


Did you know that the fairy folk of the Channel Islands are just as active today as they have ever been?

Each island has its own witch and colony of fairy folk, similar to pixies who are called pouques.

They are tiny men and women, the size of toddlers, with orange hair and green clothes.

They are shape shifters and can change into rocks and animals.


They speak Guernsey French.


Only children can see them, and they are very mischievous but have a kind heart.

Sammy and Jacob Robilliard have lots of adventures with the pouques.

Don’t forget if you want to see some pouques – THEY WON’T SHOW THEMSELVES WHEN THE ADULTS ARE AROUND!
