When Yann the injured centaur clip clops into Helen's life she decides to help him even though she's not exactly a vet. But that's just the beginning...
Helen's first aid kit comes in very handy when she meets Yann's friends—a gang of fabled beasts with a habit of getting into trouble. Together they must solve riddles, fight fauns, and defeat the dangerous Master of the Maze before midwinter and the end of the world.
First Aid for Fairies and Other Fabled Beasts is the first book in the bestselling “Fabled Beast Chronicles,” an exciting four-book adventure series starring creatures from myth and legend.
(From 8 to 12 years)
“This is a wonderful fantasy story that will be enjoyed by both children and adults...the transition between Helen's normal world and her conversion to the land of myth and fable was spotlessly done. There was just enough wonder, quarrel, and disbelief to bring me right along with her.”—myshelf.com
“It is a world where anything can happen—where centaurs roam, dragons fly, and evil enemies must be defeated.”—Linda Summerhayes, The Edinburgh Evening News
