This past year has been chock full of newly released TinkerBell merchandise, from dolls to books to a full-length, straight-to-DVD movie. My 7 year old daughter has been caught up in this Tink-mania, and has been amassing quite a collection of Tink stuff. So when she saw this junior novelization of Tink's story, she had to have it. Once she got it home, she devoured the entire 128 pages in an afternoon.
The book tells the story of Tink, who lives in Pixie Hollow with other fairies, each of whom has their own special job. A fairy's job is determined by the particular talents of that fairy, and each job is shown to be imperative to the working order of nature: the blooming of flowers, the placement of dewdrops, the changing colors of autumn leaves, even the changing of the seasons.
Tink is unhappy with her particular set of responsibilities. What unfolds in this book is the story of how Tink comes to the realization that everyone's job is important. Her Pixie Hollow pals help to demonstrate that everyone plays a part in the workings of the world. What a great lesson for children to learn!
If you know a girl under the age of ten, chances are she'd love this book....my daughter sure did!
