Reviews for Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand : Library Edition

School Library Journal Reviews 2008 March

Gr 2-4 -The plot of Gail Carson Levine's sequel (Disney, 2007) to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (Disney, 2005) is convoluted. Soop, a mermaid, is angry because Rani, a Never fairy, promised her a wand, but never followed through on that promise. In retaliation, Soop has sent a flood to Never Land, endangering the lives of all the Never fairies and the existence of Never Land itself. In desperation, their wise leader, Mother Dove, sends Rani, Tinkerbell, and Queen Ree on a quest to get a wand from Queen Titupia. Wands, and all the magic they possess, are extremely dangerous things. Once they get their hands on the wand, the Never fairies all succumb to "wand madness," making irreversible wishes that have disastrous results. Rosalyn Landor provides the narration, but even her gentle voice doesn't make the action more understandable. For die-hard fairy fans.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Library, Burnhaven Branch, Burnsville, MN
