Overview

Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand by Gail Carson Levine, David Christiana

In this best-selling sequel to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, Newbery Honor winning author Gail Carson Levine and illustrator David Christiana spin a riveting fairy tale about the dangers of dreams come true. The mermaid Soop has sent a flood to Fairy Haven! Water-talent fairy Rani must bring Soop a wand, or the Home Tree and all the Never fairies will be swept away.

But wise Mother Dove isn't sure which is worse, a wand or a flood. Wand wishes, tantalizing wand wishes, are risky. The most innocent wish can cause untold trouble. And not even Mother Dove knows that wands have hearts and minds-kind hearts or cruel hearts, sympathetic minds or minds filled with spite and mischief.

Rani, Tinker Bell, and Ree, queen of the Never fairies, set out on a perilous quest for a wand, a journey that takes them across an ocean to the palace of the terrifying Great Wanded fairies. Many obstacles stand between the questers and success: Tink's disappearance, a mermaid's magical song, wand madness, and even Never Land itself.

Meanwhile, the floodwaters are rising. . .

About the Author

When Gail Carson Levine (http://gailcarsonlevine.blogspot.com/) was little, she loved to act out fairy tales, and she often made pretend magic wands out of sticks. Back then, she never thought about the intricacies of a wand, and she had no idea she'd ever write a book about one! Gail is also the author of many acclaimed children's books, including the New York Times best seller Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg; Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted; and Writing Magic, a how-to guide for young writers. Gail lives with her husband, David, and their Airedale, Baxter, in a 220-year-old farmhouse in New York's Hudson Valley.

David Christiana has illustrated over twenty books for children, including four that he wrote. He lives in Tucson, Arizona, with his wife, Kristie Atwood, and teaches illustration at the University of Arizona and at the Orvieto Institute in Italy.

This is in response to the person who believes that very young children cannot enjoy these books. I read from this series aloud to my daughter. We began them when she was 5 and often re-read them. Now that she is 6 and beginning to read well on her own, she takes a turn reading as well. She loves them! Besides enjoying the adventure aspects, she asks questions which bring up great conversations. Additionally she comments on the moral themes in the stories. We all learn by stretching beyond what is precisely comfortable. What better time for fairies and make-believe than this time when they are developmentally excited by magic and imagination?

Gail Carson Levine is an amazingly talented fantasy writer and this series is adorable! I am really into fairies and fantasy lit so even though I'm 17 I'm a huge fan. Illustrations are by David Christiana and are breathtaking. I read the prequel, 'Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg,' which I absolutely adore, about one year ago.

I love the book, but I think the age range is wrong. Like a 4 or 6 year old is going o read this book or understand what it means. It's like a newborn undestanding the meaning of life.

Like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but for very young children. Tells of how a spell is cast, even for good reasons, that it can become bad, as most books of magic teach.
