Do you remember Tinkerbell from Peter Pan? This story revisits her and Neverland where Tinkerbell helps all the fairies including one named Prilla. Prilla, the newest fairy in Neverland, doesn't know her talent. Every fairy has a special talent. Will Prilla ever discover hers? Meanwhile, something has gone terribly wrong in Neverland. Prilla and her friend Rainy, Vida and Tinkerbell have to try to save Mother Dove - the bird that keeps Neverland alive - from danger.
We think Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg is a fantastic book to read because there are a lot of descriptive details that you won't forget. We loved the part when the fairies were trying to get Captain Hook's cigar case. That made us laugh and laugh. Prilla, the new fairy, felt left out because she didn't know what her talent was. This made us feel sorry for Prilla. We found this book suspenseful because while reading it we were wondering what Prilla's talent was.
I would recommend this book to people who like adventure and happy endings.
