These pictures, watercolors painted by David Christiana, are stunning. The colors are subtle and really the skill is just so obvious in all of the drawings that viewing them is a joy. Christiana manages to stay true to the original Disney vision for Tinker Bell while making her "look" slightly new and different to better fit in with the other fairies. Unfortunately, it takes more than great illustrations to sustain a good book.

The basic plot stays pretty true to some of the elements found in the original story of Peter Pan.

The book starts when a baby laughs every time a baby laughs for the first time, a fairy is born. This fairy, named Prilla, is special.

Not only is she going to be a Never Fairy in Neverland, she is also unlike any fairy the island has seen before. Prilla says "please" and "thank you" like humans called "Clumsies" by fairies. She even curtsies and apologizes. Stranger still, Prilla is able to move between Neverland and the dreams of Clumsy children.

Every Fairy in Neverland has a special talent water, baking, pots and pans, etc. However, when a storm strikes the island injuring Mother Dove the source of the Fairy Dust that allows Never Fairies to work their magic Prilla doesn't have much time to worry about not having a talent as she and two other fairies are sent out to try and find a way to heal Mother Dove.

I had several problems with the story. The idea of each fairy having a talent, while superficially cute, has deeper problems upon further investigation. It just feels too much like each fairy having a clique and, even worse, the story spends a lot of time focusing on Prilla being special in a bad way for not having a talent. This issue is resolved by the end of the story, but it just seems like a bad message to send to children.

And what's up with the name Prilla?

The narrative of the story also started to grate very near the beginning of the book. I haven't read J. Barrie's "Peter Pan" so I don't know if Levine was trying emulate his style or not--I think she was but need to investigate further--but it just didn't work.

Frankly, it sounded like Levine was writing in a style that was not her own and with which she was not entirely comfortable.

The book looks like a novel for older children. The print is small and there is a lot of it.

And I think that the friendship, the intense bonding, among the boys must be close to what happened. I also interviewed several kids about their hobbies, their classes, their opinions on popularity and life" [4] Levine, following the success of her adaptation of the Cinderella story into Ella Enchanted, continued telling fairy tales with a twist in what would become her Princess Tales series. According to Levine, "After Ella Enchanted was published, I submitted some of my old, much rejected picture books to my editor.

She liked one, which was then called Talk Is Cheap? But she thought it should be a short novel, rather than a picture book, and she asked me to do three more.

That picture book turned into The Fairy's Mistake, and that's how the series got started. As Levine says, "In Sleeping Beauty , the prince falls in love with the princess when he knows only three things about her: she's pretty, she's a princess, and she doesn't snore. In Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep I give the prince a real reason to kiss Sonora even though, after years, she's covered with spider webs!

Familiar characters such as Tinker Bell and Captain Hook appear in the story, as well as original characters. The book was followed in by a sequel, entitled Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand.

Another sequel, Fairies and the Quest for Never Land, was released in Levine also runs writing workshops for children in her community.Prilla arrives just before Mother Dove's "molt" when she loses some of her feathers which are turned into fairy dust, which then allows fairies to fly and do all of their tasks more effectively.

At least that's what her mini-bio on the dust jacket of her new novel says.

The basic plot stays pretty true to some of the elements found in the original story of Peter Pan. This fairy, named Prilla, is special. My daughter and I have also read the first chapter book in the Disney Fairies series, The Trouble with Tink, and that is a fairly predictable chapter book for elementary readers.

And what's up with the name Prilla? Tinker Bell takes her on a tour hoping to help her figure it out, but Tink quickly becomes frustrated because Prilla doesn't talk like any other fairy, seems to be talentless and occasionally blanks out on convers Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg by Gail Carson Levine is the first book in the Disney Fairies series by Levine.
