Fairy Dust

Fairy Dust and the Quest for the EggFairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg by Gail Carson Levine

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When Prilla arrives in Neverland, it is clear she is different from the other fairies - she doesn't know what her special talent is. But when a terrible storm injures Mother Dove and puts the ageless residents of Neverland in danger, Prilla is called upon to perform extraordinary acts of courage.

This adventure story, written by Gail Carson Levine, hits all the familiar Neverland beats - Tinker Bell, Peter Pan, Hook, and the mermaids - while adding a few others - a wicked dragon, Mother Dove and her one precious egg, and the idea that each fairy comes into the world with a special purpose that she loves to do above anything else (and yes, there are male fairies - but they are known as Sparrowmen).

Great for young children who love Disney's Tinker Bell movie and its sequels and want to hear more about Neverland's fairies.
