Tink says she’s going to treat her sisters to the very best Christmas by bringing presents and decorations from Neverland.

But as Christmas draws nearer—and Tink still has not arrived—Clara, Rosy, Goldie, and Sylva find it harder and harder not to join in the Fairyland festivities. And on top of everything else, baby Squeak has started acting rather strangely. . . . Will the season be ruined? Or will the Fairy Bell Sisters find enough faith in one another to make this the most magical Christmas ever?
