A fun read for animal lovers and fans of magical mysteries

Blaze the Phoenix is the third in a series of books set in a magical world of unicorns and dragons, running parallel with a normal world of family life and friendship. It follows the adventures of Rosie and Kat as they attempt to solve the mystery of a time turning phoenix in Starfall forest.

The characters and creatures are imaginatively described, though if you have not read the previous books, you need a glossary to keep up with the fast developing plot! There is somewhat of an overload of creatures, magic crystals and flutterpuffs, all introduced quite quickly and a lot to absorb.

The book is beautifully illustrated by Morgan Huff.

What is clever is how Lockhart writes about the magical world seamlessly with the more mundane world of school, friendship, and the village fundraiser. The two worlds appear to blend quite effortlessly.

Amidst the magic and adventure, there is also a more serious message, one of friendship, loyalty and growing up. As the two girls try to solve the mystery, they are learning valuable lessons in life skills and family life. Rosie is thought of as responsible and mature by the Magical Vet team but regarded by her parents and teachers as just a child. A feeling many young people feel as they are growing up.

A fun, fast paced adventure story for all those animal lovers.

Rosie Watch

Magical Rescue Vets: Blaze the Phoenix Synopsis

These best friends have been helping out at Calico Comfrey's Veterinary Surgery ever since they stumbled across its secret door one summer holiday. Join them as they rescue and care for the incredible, enchanted creatures of Starfall Forest. Along the way, they might learn some valuable lessons about bravery, friendship, and loyalty!

Rosie is sick of being treated like a kid. She wishes that she could grow up, so that adults would take her more seriously! Little does she expect, though, that a magical sneeze will make her wish come true, with completely unexpected consequences.

Rosie and Kat venture into the forest to find a poorly, time-turning Phoenix. The enchanted creature inadvertently casts a spell as it sneezes -and all the adults around it are made much younger! She and Kat find themselves responsible for a hospital full of animals in need and a whole crowd of cheeky, loveable baby vets!

Morgan Huff's gorgeous illustrations appear on every page, drawing readers into the story.
