I'm not sure what to say. I bought it at a recent Scholastic warehouse sale because my 4 year old daughter saw the cover with all the fairies and I saw the name of the author whom I usually really enjoy...but this book was somewhat of a disaster. It is published by the "Disney" company and involves Tinkerbell and other fairies from Neverland but the writing is very choppy and formulaic...no individual voice and style to it. The story is confusing and doesn't get very interesting until about 1/2 ...more

I clearly remember that this was my first book (of more than 100 pages) that i read in my life. It took me around... Hmm... One year? No. Over a year. It took me over a year to finish this book, i was only nine years old, so, one page was like a REALLY big progress for me.

But anyway i remember ( i read it a long that ago that i can't remember clearly) that i really like.

Maybe i should read it again...

What happens when a selfish mermaid wants a wand? A flood happens. What happens when a fairy hears a mermaids' song? They fairy turns into a bat.
What happens when some fairies go on a quest for a wand? Read it and you'll find out. XD

''FAIRY HAVEN AND THE QUEST FOR THE WAND'' this book is okay it reminds me of Tinker Bell and her fairy friends... But its a pretty good book!

In the previous book, Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, a promise is made to the mermaid Soop. In exchange for the mermaid comb, she was promised a magic wand. Time has passed and this promise has not been fulfilled. So, Soop decides that she will flood Fairy Haven unless she is given her want.

Queen Clarion, Tinkerbell and Rani set out for the land of the fairies that possess wands in hopes that they will be able to get a wand to prevent the flooding.

A rare sequel that is better than the fi

This was kind of a cute book. You really need to know the fairy lore of the Disney Neverland Fairies to really get the book, though. I've seen a couple of the movies, so I got the talents and some of that. I need to read the first one, since I'd never heard any of that about the Dove. This is not a particularly deep book, and doesn't really have any grand message, other than "be responsible." The illustrations are quite well done and I enjoyed them a lot. This is a good book for girls on a purel ...more

By Gail Carson Levine

I am sort of upset that I didn't like this adventure. It's just if you have read my review of Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg you would know why I like the Disney Fairies. They just seem comfortable with themselves. In this book it was all about the fairies having magic wand madness that made them want to wish for what they wanted. Of course things go bad when they get what they want. It is a story that gets told a lot. Yes, Yes, be careful what you wish for. I know this story very well. I ...more

Oh no! Rani made another estupido mistake and now they have to give a want to a mermaid! Wait a short moment...give a want to a mermaid!? That can't be right! To do that would cause the end of Neverland... or even the world!

But they must! The mermaids are threatening them with a flood. A flood would mean the end of Fairy Haven!

So Queen Ree (Clarion) send the fairies on a quest to go to the mainland and ask the big fairies for a wand.

But it's much more difficult than that. They must overcome the

The second book about Fairy Haven. When I finished the first one, I thought how weird it was that they left a few loose ends. Then when I got to GR I found out why, so they could take that and turn it into another quest. The fairies need a wand to give to a mermaid who traded them her comb in the first book. I really liked the theme of the story about how nothing good comes from wishing for things you want. Everyone who made a selfish or forced their will upon another ended up with consequences ...more

This really was not that enjoyable for me or for my daughter. I was super annoyed by the weird conversations when they would finish the other person's sentences. It didn't read well for me at all. I'm fairly familiar with the different fairies, so that helped a little, but the writing was a flop for me.
Rachel
Such a cute book. I love how these stories move right along. I wish they could be longer, but they make for a wonderful rainy day read. Such a shame there are only 3.

Annabelle:
I like Prilla the Fairy Talent because it was really fun that she could blink away. And that she made a wish to make Sara Quirtle complete. I liked it that in the end, the wand did only good things. That was my favorite part. And I think it was fun how that Rani the fairy could turn into a bat and how she got out of the bat-brain-thingy. And that's all I like.

I read this to Annabelle. It started out really good, I was intrigued and excited. But it got stranger and stranger as it we

Para comenzar debo decir que leí este libro con siete u ocho años, al inicio me deje llevar por la portada y los colores llamativos y hermosos que esta tiene. Sin embargo, debo decir que fue tedioso en ese momento el hecho de leerlo, y hace poco que lo releí entendí por qué.
Esta historia es independiente de otras, me parece que existen otros volúmenes, no obstante recomiendo que hayan visto quizá una película de las hadas de Disney, ya que eso facilita la lectura.

When Rena fails to return a wand to the mermaid Soop for the hair comb she gave to her, Soop threatens to flood Fairy Haven. Soop comes through on her threat when Rena says she doesn't have the wand. While Fairy Haven, Mother Dove and the many fairies at Fairy Haven are slowly sinking under water; Rena, Tink and Ree set out on an adventure to find a wand to give to Soop the mermaid. The lives of many are in their hands and they succumb to the magic of the wand, "wand madness". Terrible things go ...more

Picked up Book 1 at the 2012 booksale. Picked up book 2 at the 2013 booksale. Interested to see if it's as entertaining. I like the pictures.

I'm shocked at how much I liked this book--which is a favorite of my 6-year-old daughter's. As the middle book in a trilogy, it does more than set the scene for the finale--it forces its characters to face real decisions about the intoxication of power (wand madness), the ramifications of choice (especially the choices that affect others), and the responsibilities we have for each other. This is a tremendous morality play disguised as a Disney book. Thank you, Gail Carson Levine, for placing hig ...more
Rachel
Not one of my favorite Disney Fairy stories. Too many mermaids for my taste, Rani turns into a bat, and all the fairies get wand fever causing them to act abnormaly. Very creative, but not one of the more enjoyable stories from this series.
Mindy
My daughter and I LOVED reading this Disney Fairy book! This book was delightful and we LOVED the magical drawings inside as well. (There is a sketch about every chapter that is exquisite! Beautiful artwork to compliment the fairytale theme!) At just under 200 pages, it is a perfect book to read with your children. (We read about five chapters at a time.) OR a fun fairytale to read all on your own. This book transports you into Fairy Haven to join the magic of a fairy adventure and whimsical cha ...more

Recommends it for: someone who can't get enough of Disney fairies.
This was such a hard read! It is a terrible book for a read aloud. There were viewpoint changes sometimes every paragraph, along with many other little things that made it hard for my kids to follow along. My boys and I would never have read this book to the end if it hadn't been for my daughter's insistence (she really liked the pictures). I would definitely not recommend it to anyone to read to your kids, and there are very, very few that I would recommend read it at all.

I didn't finish this which I suppose means I should say I didn't like it but it just wasn't my cup of tea so it really is just "ok". This story clearly has an audience and I am not an 8 yr old girl with a fairy/Disney obsession so...I just don't fit the bill here. Meanwhile, the illustrations are amazing. They beautifully portray the magic of fairies and their world. I would get a tattoo based on the artwork, it is so gorgeous.

This book has a great story about making right and wrong decisions and the consequences your decisions can have. I read this and then reread it right after to my children, one chapter at a time at bedtime. My kids loved the story and I think my eldest was thinking through what was happening. There are a few pictures throughout the book that are wonderful art. I really enjoyed this book and so did my children!
Jacy
Another great story by a wonderful storyteller. This takes place soon after Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg and is all about the trouble wishing can get you into. The loveable fairies find themselves in quite a predicament and it's up the Tink, Rani, and Queen Ree to make things right. But when wands are involved nothing goes as planned.
Mandy
I love Gail Carson Levine's other works but not this book. It didn't keep my attention. It took me a long time to finish it. The book is about a bunch of fairies living in Never Land who make a mess of things when they get their hands on a wand. I was so disappointed. I do recommend reading any of her princess fairy tales.
Mike Ehlers
Follow up to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg. Levine again tells a good story, with fine spins on mermaids and fairies. Better than average juvenile fantasy, even with the familiar caution about getting what you wish for. My daughter says she liked it better than Egg.
Megan
I thought we'd really enjoy this, and was sorely disappointed. I don't know if it was just the wrong age for Eowyn, or if it was that we hadn't read the first. Or if we just really preferred the vision of neverland created by Barry and Pearson, but we weren't real fans of this.
Melissa
I listened to this one. I'm not sure if it was the reading or just the book. Maybe it would make a little more sense on paper, but the characters keep interrupting each other and so it was hard to keep track of. But, I enjoyed the storyline and the kids really enjoyed the characters.
Angela
I truly LOVE this series. It's young enough for my five-year old to understand but still entertaining for me. The art work is beautiful in this second book as it is in the first. I love the personalities of the fairies and I'm a fan of Terrance and Tinkerbell making a love connection (0=

Just letting you all know: I'm only going to review books I love. There's enough negative criticism without me piling on. A book is too hard to write.

Gail Carson Levine grew up in New York City and began writing seriously in 1987. Her first book for children, Ella Enchanted, was a 1998 Newbery Honor Book. Levine's other books include Fairest; Dave at Night, an ALA Notable Book and Best Book for Yo
