Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (audio) by Gail Carson Levine
This was a precious book. It was so sweet and fun and I love the little fairies. Hannah Gordon the narrator brings a soft gentleness to the story and does an excellent job narrating it. I think the book has illustrations, but since I decided to listen to it, I haven't seen them.
I love the idea of taking Tinkerbell and exploring her life outside of Peter Pan and Levine has created a beautiful and enchanting story. All the fairies had such great personalities, all very individual. It was a simple quest story, gathering three items and taking them to the dragon, but it was cute how much more ingenuity that fairies had to have given their size. I love the ending and how it hearkened back to the original Peter Pan story.
