Fairies and the Quest for Never Land by Gail Carson Levine

July 22, 2016

This is the third book in this series.  All of them had really pretty pictures.  This one was my favorite because it had a little girl named Gwendolyn.  This story brings in some of the Peter Pan story.  Wendy’s kiss necklace has been passed down mother to daughter for generations and Gwendolyn receives it for her birthday.  Unlike her mother and grandmother she is more interested in the fairies than in Peter Pan.  Gwendolyn finds herself in at the home tree at a bad time.   Kyto the dragon has gotten loose and is planning to destroy pixie hollow.  Gwendolyn wants to help but the fairies worry that she might make things worse.  This book is a fun adventure and lets us find out more about my favorite fairies.   There are some sad parts but it works out okay in the end.

    Great review! Have you read other books by Gail Carson Levine? Ella Enchanted is wonderful, and it’s a fun book-to-film adaptation if you want to read the book and then watch the movie and talk about the adaptation. Also, since you mention Peter Pan, I’m assuming you’ve read the original book by J. M. Barrie, yes? If not, it’s worth checking out. And once you’re ready for books that are a little bit harder, but still incorporate the world of fairy tales, you might like Chris Colfer’s Land of Stories or Sarah Mlynowski’s Whatever After series or the Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley. Keep up the great reading and reviewing!
