Scholastic New Zealand Limited, 2018. ISBN 9781775434863
(Age: 7+) Imagine having six gorgeous little winged toy horses that come to life when the adults aren't looking! Firestorm is the hero - or chief troublemaker - in this fourth book in the series.
Clara and Sophia are preparing for their performance in the school orchestra, but those sneaky little Miniwings stow away in their instrument cases. Surely, they won't press the fire alarm . . .
This is a delightful series by Sally Sutton that is a must read for fans of the Ella Diaries and Go Girl. Each Miniwings has its own adventure. It will appeal to girls who are challenging themselves with reading chapter books. The storyline is simple and easy to follow, allowing even the reluctant reader to be successful tracking the text and being able to understand the plot. The print is relatively large and the gorgeous illustrations throughout the book will be a hit with the girliest of girls. This book would be suitable for readers aged 7 and up.
