Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

From Booklist

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

Gwendolyn Jane Mary Darling Carlisle is very aware of her family legacy. As the great-great-great granddaughter of Wendy Darling, who first flew with Peter Pan and darned the socks of the Lost Boys, Gwendolyn is anxious to get started on her journey as the next Darling descendent to visit Never Land. She adores fairies and has wished all her young life for Peter Pan to visit and sprinkle her with pixie dust so she may fly to the world of her dreams. But he hasn't slipped through her bedroom window yet. The window is ever so slightly ajar morning, noon and night year-round, so whenever he remembers, the way is not blocked. Gwendolyn lives her life waiting her turn.

When she reaches age seven, Gwendolyn receives an important part of the legacy. It's been passed down through generations of Darling girls who have all worn it and eventually learned the secrets and excitement of Never Land. When Gwendolyn wears the "kiss" necklace, a silver-covered acorn button Peter Pan gave to Wendy those hundred years ago, her adventure begins. It starts not with dreams, but with visions of fairies, Mother Dove sitting on the special egg that keeps Never Land magical, and funny things like a big-eared man digging under a banana tree. For no apparent reason, the necklace becomes warm, and wonderful sights fill Gwendolyn's mind. Night after night, she holds her eyes open as long as possible for a sleepy little girl wishing for Peter Pan to darken the window frame and tell her it's time.

Then at age nine and three quarters, after waiting and hoping for what seems like an eternity, Peter Pan flies into her bedroom window as Gwendolyn is coming home from school. It is bittersweet as Gwendolyn rushes in to find her mother crying because she has grown up and can't go with them.

This series of three books is a must read for fairy lovers and provide lots of history on the fairies of Pixie Hallow.. They are very well written and engaging, I was just as interested in them as my daughter was when I read them to her - summer before first grade. She re-read them to herself as a third grader. and thoroughly enjoyed them. Family friendly, content is appropriate for early elementary children and interesting to older children as well.

I like the fairy stories that Gail Levine wrote. They have some of the same characters as Disney's Pixie Hollow movies. But, if you expect these to build on any of the movies, you'll be disappointed.

I've bought these books for David Christiana's illustrations. They are wonderful. They seem very simple at first until you start to notice all of the intricate details. I may have to buy a 2nd set so I can frame my favorites so I don't wear out the book itself.

A story with lots of unexpected twists to it. Like the other two Disney Fairies special I find the change in the Fairies looks to the regular series art hard to get use to. What makes this one of the best Fairies books however is the connection between Neverland and the Darling family. Wendy's great great decendant has been passed the kiss that Peter and once given Wendy in the nursery now on a necklace. The magical items allow her to see visions of Never land. Like her mother, grandmother and other Darling kids she looks forward to having her own adventure in Never Land. Unlike most who visits and stay with Peter, Gwen prefers to spend her time in Pixie Hollow. Her visions has allowed her to learn many of their names and their special words like I'D FLY BACKWARD oppose to saying I'M SORRY. This book has the return of Rani Bat that we only see in these hardcover specials and not in the normal fairies book. When Kyo the dragon breaks free from its cage its up to Gwen to help the fairies re capture it even at the risk of loosing her family heirloom the kiss forever. Once of my favorite parts of the book is when Gwen find Peter crying in the closet because he's sad that Gwen mother grew up and I like how happily and easily her mother let her go off on her own Never Land adventure even knowing the dangerous she could be facing from her own time with Peter Pan.

Originally posted at book reviews for kids by kids
This is the third book in this series. All of them had really pretty pictures. This one was my favorite because it had a little girl named Gwendolyn. This story brings in some of the Peter Pan story. Wendy’s kiss necklace has been passed down mother to daughter for generations and Gwendolyn receives it for her birthday. Unlike her mother and grandmother she is more interested in the fairies than in Peter Pan. Gwendolyn finds herself in at the home tree at a bad time. Kyto the dragon has gotten loose and is planning to destroy pixie hollow. Gwendolyn wants to help but the fairies worry that she might make things worse. This book is a fun adventure and lets us find out more about my favorite fairies. There are some sad parts but it works out okay in the end.

If you haven't read her other 'disney fairy books', you may want to start with those (this is the third one and they'd make more sense if you read them that way), but I just love her books (both the disney fairy ones and her others) and would 100% recommend them to everyone... my 8 year old daughter also loves these books, if that is helpful.
