Gr 2-4–Gwendolyn Carlisle, a descendant of Wendy Darling, receives the precious “kiss” necklace from her parents on her seventh birthday. A year and a half later, Peter Pan arrives to escort her to Never Land to meet Tink and the other fairies. However, when she arrives, nothing goes according to plan. She is told that there is danger coming and that she may be the cause of it. The evil Kyto, an imprisoned dragon, escapes with plans to destroy Never Land. As the fairies begin their quest to stop Kyto, they have to decide whether or not Gwendolyn is helpful or harmful to them. Fans of Tinkerbell and the Disney Fairies will enjoy this series entry. Written in short chapters interspersed with color illustrations, some full page, the text is accessible to readers. The occasional full-color, full-page artwork adds to the magic and excitement of the story.Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH

Gwendoyln, a descendant of Wendy Darling, is thrilled when Peter Pan returns after 100 years to take her to Never Land. Although the framework story dovetails nicely with Barrie's original, once Gwendolyn finds her way to Fairy Haven, Peter Pan and the Lost Boys fade into the background. Spending most of her time with the fairies, Gwendolyn plays a pivotal role in their struggle to capture a dragon. Readers who love stories about diminutive fairies will find plenty of details to enjoy in Levine's third volume for the Disney Fairies series. Grades 3-5. --Carolyn Phelan
