The Fairy Caravan (OCLC 54274386) is a book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. It was first published in 1929. The story follows the adventures of Tuppenny, a young guinea pig who runs away from home to join a travelling circus.

The woods and estate surrounding Graythwaite Hall in the Lake District, Cumbria, which were a favourite walking spot for Wordsworth, were also the backdrop for Potter's story.

The book is described by Margaret Drabble[1] as: '...those later written [1928] for the US....' ; and also: '...of little interest' .
