Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars
Who doesn’t just love Tinker Bell? Ever since the first time that I watch Peter Pan, I fell in love. Her attitude was amazing and she is just such a great and lovable character. That feeling got even more amplified when I met my wife 15 years ago and found out that Tink was in fact her favorite character. Now that I have a daughter of my own, she has already watched all the “Tinker Bell” movies and have plenty of merchandise for her. This book takes us through the timeline of Tinker Bell from J. M. Barrie’s original version of the play “Peter Pan” to her latest Disney Fairies” franchise.
Official Premise: “Tinker Bell: An Evolution” is a full biography of the fiery little fairy. Designed in collaboration with the Animation Research library, it contains artwork that has never been seen before. The book is heavily illustrated, highly detailed, and will make the perfect gift for every grown-up who believes in fairies
It is crazy to think about but this character has actually been around for over a hundred years, which literally blows my mind. She started as a spec of light and now is one of the center of one of Disney’s biggest franchises She is a prominent part of the Disney parks as well and even opens every Walt Disney Pictures film with a sprinkling of pixie dust. The book is very impressive and is setup as a three act play. Act I takes us through the origin of Tink. Act II shows how Walt Disney created this amazing character and how she has developed. Act III covers Tink’s latest adventures in the recent years.
The images are super high quality and the book is such an easy read. If you are a fan of Tinker Bell, whether it is from “Peter Pan” or your kids with the Disney Fairies franchise, this book is a must own. Also in addition to this book, I have the privileged of knowing Margaret Kerry, who was the original model for Disney’s character and I know that she is also working on a personal memoir as well. So Tinker Bell may well be over 100 years old but she is still as hot as ever and showing no signs of slowing down ever, as long as people still believe in fairies 😉
