Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Tinker Bell's passion is repairing broken pots. It is not only her passion, it is also her job as a pots-and-pans fairy in Pixie Hollow. After a hectic game of fairy tag, Tink discovers that she has lost her tinkers hammer. She immediately tries using other tools to replace it but nothing works like her hammer and soon everything that she tries to fix ends up worse off than it was to begin with. Tink is quickly losing the other fairies' confidence in her abilities, and she is losing confidence in herself. Her only hope of regaining her talent is to find her lost hammer, which seems hopeless, or to retrieve her back up. The latter, however would involve visiting Peter Pan, whom she distanced herself from after he brought Wendy back to Never Land. Should she go and face Peter, or should she risk losing her talent? This lighthearted chapter book is part of the "Disney Fairies" series and delves into the daily life of one of the most famous of the modern day fairies.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-These four paperbacks feature the denizens of Pixie Hollow, in Never Land. Beck, an animal-talent fairy, helps to end a war between the hummingbirds and the chipmunks. Lily, a garden-talent fairy, plants a mysterious seed that grows into a noxious but ultimately amazing plant. Tink, otherwise known as Tinker Bell, is a pots-and-pans fairy whose talent disappears when she loses her magic hammer. Vidia is a fast-flying-talent fairy with a mean streak, whose heart warms just a little when other fairies help her clear her name when she is falsely accused of stealing the Fairy Queen's crown. The full-color illustrations are typical Disney animation style. These attractive, fluffy titles will almost certainly fly off the shelves where such paperback series as Tracey West's "Pixie Tricks" (Scholastic) are popular.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

The Trouble With Tink

Chapter One

One sunny, breezy, afternoon in Pixie Hollow, Tinker Bell sat in her workshop, frowining at a copper pot. With one hand, she clutched her tinker's hammer, and with the other, she tugged at her blond bangs, which was Tink's habit when she was thinking hard about something. The pot had been squashed nearly flat on one side. Tink was trying to determine how to tap it to make it right again.

All around Tink lay her tinkering tools: basket full of rivets, scraps of tin, pliers, iron wire, and swatches of steel wool for scouring a pot until it shone. On the walls hung portraits of some of the pans and ladles and washtubs Tink had mended. Tough jobs were always Tink's favorites.
Tink was a pots-and-pans fairy, and her greatest joy came from fixing things. She loved anything metal that could be cracked or dented. Even her workshop was made from a teakettle that had once belonged to a Clumsy.

Ping! Ping! Ping! Tink began to pound away. Beneath Tink's hammer the copper moved as easily as if she were smoothing the folds in a blanket.

Tink had almost finished when a
shadow fell across her worktable. She looked up and saw a dark figure silhouetted in the sunny doorway. The edges of the silhouette sparkled.

"Oh, hi, Terence. Come in," said Tink.

Terence moved out of the sunlight and into the room, but he continued to shimmer. Terence was a dust-talent sparrow man. He measured and handed out the fairy dust that allowed Never Land's fairies to fly and do their magic. As a result, he was dustier than most fairies, and he sparkled all the time.

"Hi, Tink. Are you working? I mean, I see you're working. Are you almost done? That's a nice pot," Terence said, all in a rush.

"It's Violet's pot. They're dyeing spider silk tomorrow, and she needs it for boiling the dye," Tink replied. She looked eagerly at Terence's hands and sighed when she saw that they were empty. Terence stopped by Tink's workshop nearly every day. Often he brought a broken pan or a mangled sieve for her to fix. Other times, like now, he just brought himself.

"That's right, tomorrow is dyeing day," said Terence. "I saw the harvest talents bringing in the blueberries for the dye earlier. They've got a good crop this year, they should get a nice deep blue color . . ."

As Terence rambled on, Tink looked longingly at the copper pot. She picked up her hammer, then reluctantly put it back down. It would be rude to start tapping right now, she thought. Tink liked talking to Terence. But she liked tinkering more.

"Anyway, Tink, I just wanted to let you know that they're starting a game of tag in the meadow. I thought maybe you'd like to join in," Terence finished.

Tink's wing tips quivered. It had been ages since there had been a game of fairy tag. Suddenly, she felt herself bursting with the desire to play, the way you fill up with a sneeze just before it explodes.

She glanced down at the pot again. The dent was nearly smooth. Tink thought she could easily play a game of tag and still have time to finish her work before dinner.

Standing up, she slipped her tinker's hammer into a loop on her belt and smiled at Terence.

"Let's go," she said.

    Amazing book

    It is good for 3rd-4th graders. It is good for people who like Tinkerbell, but may not want their friends to know. I hope you really enjoy the book. It's a chapter book with some pictures - not too easy.

    It's good but not the best.

    I liked the book but I could expect better. When Tink loses her hammer it feels like the world went upside down. I like it.

    A great book.. The Trouble with Tink

    Hi there! I am reading a book called The Trouble With Tink and it is a very good book. I enjoyed the book because it was interesting for me and a very nice and cute story. I chose the book, because it was on the school bookfair and their usually great and I love Tinker Bell because she is my favorite fairy and character so I read the summary and it was interesting for me and the summary made me read it. SUMMARY Tinker Bell is the best Pots-and-pans talent fairy in all Pixie Hollow. The fairy¿s played a game like tag and suddenly when they were playing, she lost her tinker¿s hammer and she is very sad. She checked all over the ground for her Tinker¿s hammer. But Tink had a spare hammer but in Peter Pans hideout. All the fairies thought that she had lost her talent. A friend of her called Prilla told her that she could go with Queen Ree and she said that she would probably fix it but who knows? You¿ll have to read the rest. My favorite part was when she was playing tag and the pictures I did and saw and the part when she went with Peter Pan. You should read it so you can tell us you¿r favorite part(s). I would recommend the book to a girl between 8-12 years because it is not a very hard book. Or for a person between second grade and sixth grade.

    My child loved these books

    My daughter (11) loved this series, and she is reading it to her 6-year-old sister as well. She has read all 4 books in the series and anxiously awaits the 5th in May. The last book she read in 2 sittings. Love any book that gets kids to read and be excited about it.
