Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue is about the famous fairy’s first encounter with a human, a little girl in the English countryside. The story takes place while Lizzy and her father, an academic type, are in the country. The young girl is a fan of fairies and of course her father discounts them as the subject of fiction. After a slightly bumpy first meeting Lizzy and Tink, as she is called by her friends, develop a special bond. A misunderstanding leads her friends to believe the blond fairy is in danger and they mount a rescue in the midst of a summer shower, a difficult time for fairies because when their wings get wet they cannot fly. After a few adventures all ends well.
