In this best-selling sequel to Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, Newbery Honor-winning author Gail Carson Levine and illustrator David Christiana spin a riveting fairytale about the dangers of dreams come true. The mermaid Soop has sent a flood to Fairy Haven! Water-talent fairy Rani must bring Soop a wand, or the Home Tree and all the Never fairies will be swept away.
But wise Mother Dove isn't sure which is worse, a wand or a flood. Wand wishes, tantalizing wand wishes, are risky. The most innocent wish can cause untold trouble. And not even Mother Dove knows that wands have hearts and minds-kind hearts or cruel hearts, sympathetic minds or minds filled with spite and mischief.
Rani, Tinker Bell, and Ree, queen of the Never fairies, set out on a perilous quest for a wand, a journey that takes them across an ocean to the palace of the terrifying Great Wanded fairies. Many obstacles stand between the questers and success: Tink's disappearance, a mermaid's magical song, wand madness, and even Never Land itself.
Meanwhile, the floodwaters are rising. . . .
When Gail Carson Levine (http: //gailcarsonlevine.blogspot.com/) was little, she loved to act out fairy tales, and she often made pretend magic wands out of sticks. Back then, she never thought about the intricacies of a wand, and she had no idea she'd ever write a book about one! Gail is also the author of many acclaimed children's books, including the "New York Times" best seller "Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg"; Newbery Honor Book "Ella Enchanted"; and "Writing Magic," a how-to guide for young writers. Gail lives with her husband, David, and their Airedale, Baxter, in a 220-year-old farmhouse in New York's Hudson Valley.
David Christiana has illustrated over twenty books for children, including four that he wrote. He lives in Tucson, Arizona, with his wife, Kristie Atwood, and teaches illustration at the University of Arizona and at the Orvieto Institute in Italy.
