Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Young Kate McCrady, her friends Lainey and Mia, and Mia’s younger sister, Gabby, hear silvery bells, view flying flamingos, and feel an ocean breeze, and then they are magically whisked away—in a blink—to Pixie Hollow, Never Land’s home to fairies, including Tinker Bell. The fairies agree to transport the girls back home, but before that can occur, Kate sneaks away for a rendezvous with Vidia, a fast-flying fairy with a nasty agenda. As the book concludes, the girls (called “Clumsies” by the fairies) are stuck in Never Land, happily awaiting further adventures. This new series builds on the popularity of existing fairies titles (including Thorpe’s Tink in a Fairy Fix, 2011) that promote the Disney version of Never Land. Each fairy has his or her own talent (Tinker Bell mends pots and pans, while Rain is in charge of weather), making the characters easy to remember. Short chapters, a large font, and plentiful black-and-white illustrations make this book accessible to beginning chapter-book readers. Recommended where demand for fairies is high. Grades 2-4. --Kay Weisman

I think that this is a good book for people who like fairies and a little adventure and the people in the book are very curios.

Format: Paperback
This is a very solid series, and it seems ideal for readers who are ready for a book that is just a bit more advanced than a basic chapter book.

The four girls who are transported to Pixie Hollow, (Fairyland), have distinct personalities and are more developed as characters than I've generally found in books like this at this reading level. There is a plot, some action, a bit of adventure, and some common sense decision making. Not to be a wise guy about it, but the heroines are not fashionistas, or shallow mean girls, or drippy incompetents. They have a little oomph and they are generally engaging. There is a good give-and-take dynamic within the group.(In this regard they are very reminiscent of the little girls in Vivien French's "Tiara Club" sets of books.)

The writing is serviceable and not overly cutesy. The cloying sweetness you can get in some of the older-style Disney offerings is kept to a minimum. These are very straight forward books. There is no subversive humor or tongue in cheek dialogue or hip irony, (and Tinkerbell is no longer the homicidal psycho we know and love from the original "Peter Pan"). That said, the books are cheerful, mild fantasy adventures, with a satisfying and pleasant feel. That's not such a bad thing.

So, if you want an early reader that has a bit of fantasy/adventure and a nice vibe, this is certainly a decent book to look at.

Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Except for that I have no connection at all to the author or the publisher of this book. I never met Walt, but I was assaulted by Pluto at Disneyworld.

This book is notable in that it reveals the fairies of Pixie Hollow harvest their milk from MICE. Yes, you read that correctly. The fairies apparently breed mice for their milk. Somehow, I don't think Disney is going to incorporate this detail into an animated Pixie Hollow film anytime soon... it's a bit of an eyebrow-raiser the inference made it into the book to begin with... kudos to the author for keeping things provocative...

Also, Tinker Bell is more true to the spirit of the character's original roots - that is, a conceited little brat who needs to be knocked down a few pegs. It's a lot more interesting dynamic than the white-washed personality featured in the Disney Fairy movies.

The narrative is a bit pedestrian but remains a welcome divergence from identical chapter book subjects... if you're bored to death of Rachel & Kirsty's repetitive adventures securing endless items stolen by Jack Frost and his goblins, this book may serve as a worthwhile (albeit similar) departure from your child's compulsive fairy-oriented fixation.

This book is a great book for seven-year-olds who believe in fairies! While I was reading this book, I found alot of pictures, so it is not like a very long book.
I rated this book four stars because it was very interesting, but towards the end I wasn't that interested anymore. I mostly recommended this book for seven-year-olds because some ten-year-olds, like me, may lose interest reading because it may start to get easy for their reading level.
This book was a great book!

Story Synopsis:
Friends Kate, Lainy and Mia are playing outside in Mia's yard when Gabby, Mia's little sister, meets Prilla, a fairy from Pixie Hollow. Prilla is a rare talent fairy in that she is a blink fairy. She transports to the mainland to visit children when she blinks as it is her job to keep children believing in Fairies, which keeps them alive. Mia cannot believe her luck--she always knew fairies existed but imagine her surprise when she gets to talk with Prilla!

In a blink everything changes. The four girls are transported to Pixie Hollow with Prilla. The girls are welcomed by Queen Clarion who instructs Tinker Bell and Prilla to watch over their short stay in Pixie Hollow. They should be able to return to mainland the next day when the conditions are favorable. During their short stay in Pixie Hollow, the girls get to see where the fairies live and work in Pixie Hollow and meet Terence when they go to get pixie dust so they can learn to fly.

Kate wants to learn to fly better so she can return to Pixie Hollow whenever she wants. After meeting Vidia, a fast flying fairy, promises to help Kate learn how to become a better flier if Kate meets her after the others have gone to bed. Tension mounts as Kate gets lost in Pixie Hollow after Vidia vanishes with the pixie dust Kate brought. What will Kate do and will the others find her in time for them to go home?

My Thoughts:
This is a cute new series involving the ever popular Disney Fairies. It is a great stepping stone up into longer books, perfect for those readers who need more of a challenge than Beginner Readers offer but are not quite ready for full fledged fiction novels.
