Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This sequel to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (2005) returns children to Levine’s Peter Pan–inspired Fairy Haven. Given the long gap between books, readers may struggle to recall details of the first plot, upon which Levine heavily builds without providing much backstory. But once Tink and her fairy pals bring a havoc-wreaking magic wand back to their community, readers will become sufficiently absorbed to forgive the bumpy start. Full-color artwork supplies the lavish visual element that is a major draw of the Disney Fairies series. Grades 3-5. --Jennifer Mattson --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Given that we were all big fans of Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, we were anxiously awaiting Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand. My library was a little behind on picking up this book, so I finally broke down and picked it up at the bookstore. Over a period of 3 days around New Year's, I read this to my 5 ½ year old daughter. She's at a point where she can't read for herself yet, but enjoys longer chapter books that still contain a picture here or there. Some of our favorites are the Little House books which we've now read almost all of them. Make sure that you're not missing out on the other non-Laura series. If you haven't already, go pick up Little House on the Highlands which is about Laura's great grandmother Martha when she was a little girl in Scotland. That's followed by a series about Charlotte (grandma), then Caroline (Ma). It eventually ends with Rose, Laura's daughter. But I digress.
All in all a good read, but maybe a little too mature in some places as well as difficult to follow. The mature point is a minor one. At one point, one of the fairies makes a wish that another fairy would feel for him romantically. It's really no problem, just not something I'd like to expose my 5 ½ year old to just yet. (If I could wait until she was 25, that would be fine too- spoken like a true dad). They also use the word "hate" throughout the book. Might be just me but that's a word we really try not to use.
The most difficult thing with the story is trying to follow what's going on. Again, it might be fine for older kids that can read to themselves, but my kid really struggled. They bounce around from story line to story line.

This second Disney Fairies hardback novel by Ella Enchanted-author Gail Carson Levine is even better than the first. Full of charm and wit, it tells a terrific story that teaches some good moral values -- mainly concerning the evils that can come with greed and power.

Also better than ever are the illustrations. About every fourth page has a large watercolor; one is a four-page fold-out. Underneath the dust jacket, the book cover has a watercolor on its front and back.

Ella Enchanted (Trophy Newbery) is still a cut above, but if you're looking for a Disney novel you can't do much better that this one.

Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand
By Gail Carson Levine

Soop is a mermaid in Neverland. She is threatening to flood Neverland, unless the fairies get her a wand.

Tinkerbelle, and the other fairies are sent on a quest to get a wand from the Great Wandies. The wandies are willing to give up the wand to help save Fairy Haven. The wandies decide it would be best if they put the wand to sleep.

Each fairy is allowed to have one wish, on the way back to Fairy Haven. One fairy wishes to have wings, so she can fly, and then turns around and wishes for Soop to be her friend. Tinkerbelle wishes for Peter Pan to fall in love with a clam shell.
The fairies get carried away with wishes and they all get `wand madness'. This means, they can't stop using the wand.

The magic of fairy dust has always been enough for the fairies, until the wand takes over.

The mermaid, Soop, turns one fairy into a bat, by singing her song, before she can warn the mermaid that wand wishes are permanent. Soop makes it so her friend cannot speak, or read, the friend wishes that Soop can't be heard.

When the fairies sneak in and take the wand from the mermaids, the wand is in a dream state. The wand makes the fairies grow and shrink, grow and shrink.

Tinkerbell tries to tame the wand. Will she be able to control the wand, without getting wand madness, again? Will the fairies be able to return to their normal size? How can the fairies return the wand and return to their calm, peaceful kingdom?

Although, this book is very fast paced and exciting, at first, it was a little hard to follow. It took awhile before I realized I was reading about Tinkerbelle and Neverland. I think it would be best to read Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, first.

Format: Paperback
This book is bad. Just plain awful and nearly unreadable. No idea where the 20+ positive reviews have come from, certainly not from people who actually read the book to a child...

The Writing is terrible. There is no flow with the language, no artistry, it is very mechanical and feels like reading a stone tablet translated from ancient Greek, not a childrens/young adult book. It is just poorly written.

There must be 50 characters introduced within the first 1/3rd of the book. This makes the story totally confusing for both parent and child. This combined with the poor writing makes the story totally unreadable.

The complaints I have on the subject and plot I will leave alone, because they are a matter of opinion. However, I believe that Disney must have demanded a book from the author that introduced 100 Characters, a horde of different types of fairies and who knows what else in order for the book to satisfy some sort of marketing scheme, that is really the only sane explanation for the convoluted cast of characters, archetypes and mechanical 'fill in the blank' writing that seems to have happened here.

The actual plot of this book could have been written in less than a quarter of the finished product, however it seems the author shoehorned in a host of pointless characters just to represent the various Disney marketing bullet points.

The only, and I stress the word ONLY redeeming value of this book is the artistry and love put into its illustration. The pictures included and formatting of the book is beautiful. However, books are meant to be read not just looked at. The pictures are great, but if you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.
