Magic Animal Rescue: Maggie and the wish fish by E.D Baker

cover image

Bloomsbury Publishing, 2017. ISBN 9781408878293
(Age: 5-8) Recommended. One day Maggie speaks to a magical fish who promises her a wish, will she let him go, can she trust a talking fish?
The characters in this book are Maggie, Zelia, Peter, Bob, Nora, Leonard, Stella, and all the magical creatures. The characters are creative.
The plot is also very creative and engaging.
The big ideas in the story are the fish granting Maggi her wish.
The settings of this story are the woods, meadow, cottage, bob's stable and the lake. I like how the pictures tell some of the story.
The style of text is imaginary and is a beginner's book.
I recommend this book for 5 to 8 year olds. If you liked this book I reckon you should read Magic Animal Rescue: Maggie and the flying horse.
