Magic Animal Rescue: Maggie and the flying horse by E.D Baker

cover image

Bloomsbury Publishing, 2017. ISBN 9781408878286
(Age: 5-8) Recommended. One day Maggie finds a tiny injured flying horse. Can she find help in time?
The characters in this story are Maggie, Zelia, Peter, Bob, Leonard and all the magical creatures. The characters played a great role in the story.
The plot is creative, engaging and very interesting.
The big idea in this book is helping a flying horse.
The settings of the story are the woods, meadow, cottage and Bob's stable. I like all the pictures in the book as they help set the scene and add an extra element to the story.
The style of text is imaginary and is a beginner's book.
I recommend this book for 5 to 8 year olds. I suggest reading this book before you read the other book Magic Animal Rescue Maggie and the wish fish.
