Description
Prilla, the newest fairy to arrive in Never Land, is so odd that Never Land itself isn’t certain whether to let her into Fairy Haven. Prilla shakes hands when she meets other fairies, and she says “Pleased to meet you,” instead of “Fly with you.” What’s more, she calls Tinker Bell Miss Bell. Altogether, she acts more like a Clumsy than a self-respecting Never fairy should. To make matters worse, Prilla doesn’t know what her talent is–or if she has a talent at all. Mother Dove, the wisest creature in Never Land, thinks Prilla has a talent, but even she isn’t certain.    A diabolical hurricane, a selfish fairy, Captain Hook, snobby mermaids, a fierce golden hawk, and the evil dragon Kyto combine in a tantalizing elixir that tests Mother Dove’s wisdom, Tink’s courage, and Prilla’s mettle. Even Clumsy children on the mainland–even readers, wherever they may be–play a crucial role in deciding Never Land’s fate.

      • content: Settle down, cozy up, and listen in! Hannah Gordon transports listeners of all ages to the fairies' domain nestled within the familiar realm of Neverland. Amidst great expectation, each newborn fairy learns to identify her special talent. What will Prilla's be? She doesn't come upon it easily. Then a hurricane ravages Neverland, and Prilla embarks on a quest to save Mother Dove and her egg, the source of Neverland's youthfulness. Gordon's narration is as gentle as a fairy's kiss; her genuine tone makes us believe in these possibilities. She delights in the details of mermaids and dragons, exudes personality, whether prickly or pompous, and casts a caring magic spell over all. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine

        Tinker Bell, the feisty fairy made famous in J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan
        as well as Disney's animated movie of that book, goes into freefall here, recast as a star of this flighty and confusing fantasy. Levine (Ella Enchanted
        ) introduces readers to "Tink's" world, Never Land—a magical island that can shift size and location, and where humans (called "Clumsies"), animals and fairies never grow old. The perpetual state of spring and summer is sustained by Mother Dove sitting on her magic egg. A new fairy named Prilla arrives on the eve of Mother Dove's Molt—her feathers provide flight-making fairy dust. But when tragedy strikes Mother Dove and the egg, Prilla and two other fairies are chosen to go on a perilous quest (involving Captain Hook) in order to save the ailing bird. Unfortunately, the detailed descriptions of Never Land life are overly precious (e.g., "a midge on a fairy was as big as a bee on a Clumsy") and the characters' qualities come off as cloying. Tink remains fundamentally petulant but does relate to Mother Dove her unrequited love for Peter, a point likely to be lost on readers who would migrate to this book's fairy themes. The conversational narrative frequently addresses readers directly, a convention that becomes tiresome ("Remember the worst pain you've ever felt. Close your eyes and think of it"). Though Levine takes Tink on new adventures, she probably won't win the fairy many new fans. Ages 6-10.

        An infectious baby's laugh (said to be the genesis of fairies) kicks off this audio adaptation of Levine's (Ella Enchanted
        ) original novel about Tinker Bell, of Peter Pan
        fame, and her friends on the island of Never Land. Tink is among the Never fairies who are curious about Prilla, the isle's newest arrival. But Prilla is having a rough transition to her new life; she isn't sure which fairy faction she belongs to, because she doesn't know what her talent is. When tragedy strikes Never Land, however, Prilla is called on to help lead a perilous quest to save the fairies and their leader, Mother Dove. Along the way, Prilla learns what she's really good at. Gordon, a British actress, reads with a softened accent and a kind, sunny tone that prove inviting. Fans of all things fairy may want to flit with Prilla and hear more about beloved Tinker Bell, but many young listeners are likely to find the myriad details of fairy life and the convoluted plot line a bit hard to follow. Ages 6-up.
