Bloomsbury Children's Books, 2017. ISBN 9781681193304
(Age: 5-10) Recommended. Cressida is back in rainbow realm for Flash's race the thunder dash. She is going to be the first human girl in the thunder dash. But the silly wizard-lizard spell goes wrong and the race track is covered in sticky pink goo.
The characters in this book are the unicorn princesses, Cressida and the wizard-lizard. The characters are interesting and some are funny.
The plot makes sense and is engaging.
The big idea was Cressida to run in the thunder dash and help clean the track.
The settings are in the woods behind Cressida house and in the rainbow realm. The setting isn't described as much as the first book but is still really good.
The style of the book is fantasy and the text is big and easy to read.
I recommend this book for 5 to 10 years old. If you like the series of Rainbow magic by Daisy Meadows you will enjoy these books.
Grace, Year 6
