Fairies and the Quest for Neverland by Gail Carson Levine

5 stars

Disney Fairies

So you had to know we couldn't get through Once Upon A Week without a Disney fairy book!

This is the latest from Gail Carson Levine, whose books I love and adore.  I wish desperately that Disney had done the movies based on her beautiful books, but whatever.

This one is lots of fun because we have a Clumsy (human) who's a descendant of Wendy.  Her perspective gives a new twist to these stories.

Very cute, definitely recommended.  You don't have to read the other two first, but it's helpful, since there are a few references you'll miss otherwise.

And I LOVE the references at the end, when Gwendolyn is telling stories to the lost boys, because I'm pretty sure some of them refer to other books by Levine.  Too funny.

Of course, David Christiana's illustrations are GORGEOUS too.

HIGHLY recommended!!

  1. That is funny that we posted the same book. I wish the Tinkerbell movies had been like these books too.
