Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg by Gail Carson Levine is the first book in the Disney Fairies series by Levine. Prilla is a brand new fairy in Fairy Haven, and she has a big problem. Most fairies know as soon as they are born what their talent is, but Prilla doesn't have any idea. Tinker Bell takes her on a tour hoping to help her figure it out, but Tink quickly becomes frustrated because Prilla doesn't talk like any other fairy, seems to be talentless and occasionally blanks out on conversations. What Tink doesn't know is that Prilla is visiting "Clumsy" (human) children on the mainland. Prilla arrives just before Mother Dove's "molt" when she loses some of her feathers which are turned into fairy dust, which then allows fairies to fly and do all of their tasks more effectively. But when a huge hurricane hits Never Land, it destroys the egg and wounds Mother Dove, which causes most of the residents of Never Land to begin aging. Prilla, Rani an water-talent fairy, and Vidia a fast-flying talent fairy embark on a quest to restore the egg, heal Mother Dove, and save all of Never Land, and Prilla also hopes that along the way she will discover her talent. I began reading this book nightly with my eight-year-old daughter, and I quickly fell in love with this beautiful novel. Levine's descriptions of Mother Dove are breath-taking and heart-breaking. There is surprising depth in this character, more than you normally see in adult novels, much less one for children. The quest has an epic feel, although it is accomplished rather easily, but Rani makes a shocking sacrifice, and Tinker Bell has to grow up a bit while dealing with her feelings for Peter Pan. Levine has written a novel for both the children and adults who love Tinker Bell with rare ability. Children can relate to Prilla's search for where she fits in the world. David Christiana's watercolor paintings throughout the book are gorgeous. My daughter and I have also read the first chapter book in the Disney Fairies series, The Trouble with Tink, and that is a fairly predictable chapter book for elementary readers. But The Quest for the Egg is something much better. It's one of the best books I've read this year.

Though my reading level is high, I enjoyed this book. It is mainly about Prilla, a new fairy in Pixie Hollow. She doesn't know what her talent is, and the other fairies ignore her because she is 'incomplete'. So when disaster strikes during the Molt, Mother Dove, her feathers the source of pixie dust, is injured and her egg is broken, Prilla, Rani, Tinker Bell, and Vidia embark on a journey restore the egg. Through this they learn to trust each other, and Prilla discovers her talent. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Tinker Bell.

A story about the newest fairy in Never Land and her affinity for Clumsy (read Human) children. Prilla has no idea what her talent is, unlike other fairies, who know what their special gift is from the moment they arrive in Never Land . When a storm hits the island and cripples its inhabitants, Prilla and two other fairies are chosen for a dangerous quest that will pit them against sea people, Captain Hook, and a dragon! Engaging, with gorgeous color illustrations. This author is known for spinning out fairy tales in award-winning fashion.

Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg was an outstanding book. If you are into Magic, Fairies, and Never Land that is. Prilla, a never fairy, comes to Never Land incomplete. She doesn't know her talent! If you are a complete fairy, you know your talent as soon as you arive in Never Land. She also says things like 'Thank You' and 'Pardon Me' which is not like a never fairy should act. But when Mother Dove's egg that keeps the 'Never' in Never Land breaks, hope is lost. So it's up to Prilla, Rani, and Vidia to save the day. What will happen? It's up to you to find out.

Overall, a very good book for young children. So much more interesting than most of the formulaic childrens' books available today. The characters had real personalities, and the drama was quite intriguing. There was still quite a bit of the dichotomy that characterizes books meant for younger children- wherein the 'good' characters are completely good and the 'bad' characters have almost no redeeming features. I felt the book could have been really, really good if Gail Carson Levine wasn't still 'writing down' for children. Still- a superior childrens' book by a talented writer.

Even as a 15 year old, I absolutely love this book. Gail Carson Levine used to be a favourite of mine and she has created an enchanting and inspiring story that goes beyond the realm of Peter Pan. Paired with stunning illustrations, this book will truly make you believe.
