Prilla, the newest fairy to arrive in Never Land, is so odd that Never Land itself isn’t certain whether to let her into Fairy Haven. Prilla shakes hands when she meets other fairies, and she says, “Pleased to meet you,” instead of “Fly with you.” What’s more, she calls Tinker Bell “Miss Bell.” Altogether, she acts more like a Clumsy than a self-respecting Never fairy should. To make matters worse, Prilla doesn’t know what her talent is, or if she has a talent at all. Mother Dove, the wisest creature in Never Land, thinks Prilla has a talent, but even she isn’t certain.

A diabolical hurricane, a selfish fairy, Captain Hook, snobby mermaids, a fierce golden hawk, and the evil dragon Kyto combine in a tantalizing elixir that tests Mother Dove’s wisdom, Tink’s courage, and Prilla’s mettle. Even Clumsy children on the mainland, even readers, wherever they may be, play a role in deciding Never Land’s fate.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marah | 2/3/2014

    " I didn't think the introductory laugh would ever go away, and the rest of the plot didn't move either. Liked the message of self-worth. Listened on CD. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/19/2014

    " We read this aloud to Gracie and thought it was quite adventurous! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna | 1/18/2014

    " I really enjoyed this quick read- its about 172 pages, about Tinker Bell, in her post Pan days, and the other fairies in Fairy Haven. I'm blaming this all on hormones, but at the end, when there's a bunch of clapping going on, I even started to tear up. It was a fun book- I def want to get if for Elena in a couple years when she's old enough for chapter books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 1/18/2014

    " This book has a quirky, somewhat contrived plot and a few surprising revelations about the inhabitants of Neverland (did you know that Tinker Bell specializes in repairing pots???) It has beautiful artwork, but unfortunately the artist did not read all the descriptions carefully (one of my pet peeves in book art or cover art). "
