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 crucial role in deciding Never Land's fate.

"Settle down, cozy up, and listen in! Hannah Gordon transports listeners of all ages to the fairies' domain nestled within the familiar realm of Neverland. Amidst great expectation, each newborn fairy learns to identify her special talent. What will Prilla's be? She doesn't come upon it easily. Then a hurricane ravages Neverland, and Prilla embarks on a quest to save Mother Dove and her egg, the source of Neverland's youthfulness. Gordon's narration is as gentle as a fairy's kiss; her genuine tone makes us believe in these possibilities. She delights in the details of mermaids and dragons, exudes personality, whether prickly or pompous, and casts a caring magic spell over all. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
