Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg

Gail Carson Levine, Author, Hannah Gordon, Read by , read by Hannah Gordon. Listening Library $35 (0p) ISBN 978-0-307-28167-8

An infectious baby's laugh (said to be the genesis of fairies) kicks off this audio adaptation of Levine's (Ella Enchanted ) original novel about Tinker Bell, of Peter Pan fame, and her friends on the island of Never Land. Tink is among the Never fairies who are curious about Prilla, the isle's newest arrival. But Prilla is having a rough transition to her new life; she isn't sure which fairy faction she belongs to, because she doesn't know what her talent is. When tragedy strikes Never Land, however, Prilla is called on to help lead a perilous quest to save the fairies and their leader, Mother Dove. Along the way, Prilla learns what she's really good at. Gordon, a British actress, reads with a softened accent and a kind, sunny tone that prove inviting. Fans of all things fairy may want to flit with Prilla and hear more about beloved Tinker Bell, but many young listeners are likely to find the myriad details of fairy life and the convoluted plot line a bit hard to follow. Ages 6-up. (Sept.)
