The Lovereading4Kids comment

Little girls who enjoy the Rainbow Magic books will love these gentle stories of magic and animals. Hattie B is quite ordinary except when she is summoned to the magical kingdom of Bellua. There she’s able to help its wonderful creatures and cure them if they’re ill. In this story, wicked King Ivar has stolen a feather from the tail of a young phoenix, and with it immortality. Hattie must get the feather back as quickly as possible. These fun stories offer just the right amount of suspense and excitement to young readers, together with the cosy reassurance of familiar characters and a happy ending. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Phoenix's Flame by Claire Taylor-Smith

Discover a secret world of fairytale creatures! Book 6 of Hattie B's magical adventures.

The creatures of The Kingdom of Bellua need Hattie's help now more than ever! Evil King Ivar of the Imps has stolen the ultimate power - the immortality of a young Phoenix. With a little help from her friends, Hattie must help the Phoenix get her power back before she can face King Ivar and free the creatures of Bellua once and for all!

Hattie B is inspired by a little girl called Harriet, who once asked 'where do unicorns and dragons go when they're unwell?' Her mum, Lindsay Taylor, and their friend, Suzanne Smith thought long and hard and suddenly realised - a magical vet of course! With this twinkle of an idea they met the writer Claire Baker and together they created the Kingdom of Bellua - and the pen name Claire Taylor-Smith.
