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...

This is technically another book in the Disney fairies series, although this one is hardbound and larger than the standard softbound books.

It's also not as good.

The first thing I didn't like about the book is the artwork. It is definitely inferior to the artwork in the regular Disney Fairies books. It's pale and washed-out, and the fairies look remarkable unlike the fairies in the regular series of books. It's actually bothersome.

The second thing I didn't like about the book is the story. Thing

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

This book is utterly charming. Young readers will adore the little fairies and their friend, Mother Dove, as well as Soop and the other mesmerizing mermaids. Ms. Levine teaches the reader a lot about friendship, jealousy, and greed in this wonderful tale of a group of fairies who retrieve a special wand for Soop, a mermaid determined to get exactly what she wants.

The spell of the wand is very powerful. Who wouldn't want to indulge in a little dreaming? If you had the chance to make a wish and ge

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

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.

Fairies need to be careful around mermaid songs! Imagine being a bat! How tragic! What a brave water fairy; she deserves our reverence. Anyone who chops off their wings then goes for a spell with a bat after hearing Mermaid Carol is someone to be respected.

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.

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.

I thought I would like it more than I did. It was a bit obtuse for this age of reader.
That being said, the illustrations were lovely, and the paper stock used really enhanced the high end feeling of the book.

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

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

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.

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
