The Trouble with Tink is the first Disney Fairies chapter book published by Random House.


Tinker Bell's passion is repairing broken pots. It is not only her passion, it is also her job as a pots-and-pans fairy in Pixie Hollow. After a hectic game of fairy tag, Tink discovers that she has lost her tinkers' hammer. She immediately tries using other tools to replace it but nothing works like her hammer and soon everything that she tries to fix ends up worse off than it was to begin with. Tink is quickly losing the other fairies' confidence in her abilities, and she is losing confidence in herself. Her only hope of regaining her talent is to find her lost hammer, which seems hopeless, or to retrieve her back up. The latter, however would involve visiting Peter Pan, whom she distanced herself from after he brought Wendy back to Never Land. Should she go and face Peter, or should she risk losing her talent?
