Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (audio) by Gail Carson Levine

A new fairy arrives in Fairy Haven named Prilla.  But Prilla doesn't know what her talent is which is very unusual for a Neverland fairy.  When a hurricane blows Mother Dove's egg (which keeps Neverland young) away, Prilla and some of her fellow fairies set out to get Kyto the dragon to put it back together, but first they must gather three items with which they hope to tempt Kyto.

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.
