"Really, Ree, you flatter me. But, frankly, I'd rather go on another wild goose chase around the Home Tree, searching for one of your missing baubles than attend any party of yours."

Vidia and the Fairy Crown is the second book in the Disney Fairies chapter book series.


Vidia is greedy and can sometimes be cruel,and is the fastest of the fast-flying-talent fairies, has been cast under a shadow of suspicion when one day the fairy Queen's crown was found missing. Queen Clarion called for a special meeting of everyone in Pixie Hollow. When no one seemed to have an answer to this problem and it looked as if Vidia was the culprit, Queen Ree turned to her and said, "Let's all gather again the day after tomorrow; we'll hold Vidia's hearing then, midmorning. Vidia, you will then have the chance to speak to the charges against you." Everyone believed that Vidia was guilty except for kindhearted Prilla, one of the youngest Never Fairies. This starts off the adventure of finding the Queen's crown.If found guilty she will be exiled. So, Vidia and her sort-of friend Prilla play detective and try to find out what really happened to the crown.Their investigation leads from one place to another. In the end, it's exhausting, but Vidia ends up finding the crown. She has a breif moment of weakness, and considers keeping the crown for herself, but changes her mind in the end. The lesson the Never fairies and sparrow men learn: not everything is as it seems.
