Overview
The Disney Fairies star in a magical all-new early chapter book series for kids ages 6 to 10--The Never Girls
The smell of salt water, a gust of seabreeze, and the bell-like ringing of a fairy's laugh are the only hints that something magical is happening to Kate, Mia, Lainey, and Gabby. In a blink of an eye, the four friends are whisked out of their ordinary lives to the most wonderful place of all--Never Land, home to fairies, mermaids . . . and now four lost girls. The girls don't want to leave right away, but Queen Clarion and Tinker Bell have figured out a way for them to get home. Will Kate, Mia, Lainey, and Gabby's fantastic adventure end before it's barely begun?

When Kate, Lainey, Mia, and Mia’s annoying younger sister are transported to Never Land’s Pixie Hollow, they become the responsibility of a reluctant Tinker Bell until Queen Clarion and her winged crew can figure out how to get the girls home again. This first installment in the Never Girls, a Disney Fairies spinoff series, is by necessity mostly exposition about fairy life; the girls learn, for example, that humans are referred to as “Clumsies,” and discover the talents possessed by an array of local fairies. Thorpe seems occupied by diminutiveness and shelter magazine prettiness (“It was the perfect room. Four girl-sized hammocks hung from the tree’s branches. The willow’s leaves spilled down around them like curtains”), but there’s little narrative meat, character depth, or dramatic tension to be found among the oohing and ahhing. Fans of the reimagined Tinker Bell, who is now something of a DIY geek, may wish she had elbowed the other tiresome fairy characters out of the way and claimed center stage. Final art not seen by PW. Simultaneously available: The Space Between. Ages 6–10. (Jan.)
