In a nutshell: gentle stories of friendship and magic | Linda Chapman writes stories that young readers love and this exciting but reassuring series combining magic, friendship and animals will be another favourite. Maia and her friends Lottie and Sita make an amazing discovery: because they believe in magic and love animals they become Star Friends, picked out by magical animals and given magical abilities themselves so that they can do good deeds, bring happiness, and stand up against those wielding dark magic. It’s a shame that their bossy classmate Ionie is a Star Friend too, but she’s a useful person to have on your side. This first story builds to an exciting conclusion, and readers will be eager for the next in the series. Charming black and white illustrations by Lucy Fleming add to the appeal. ~ Andrea Reece
