Have I got a great Operation Story Share for you today! Flight of the Phoenix by R.L. LaFevers. This is the first of four books in the Nathaniel Fludd Beastologist series.
Here’s the inside cover copy:
Nathaniel Fludd’s life has taken a turn for the worst.
With his parents declared lost at sea, ten-year-old Nate lands on the doorstep of a distant family cousin—the world’s last remaining beastologist. Before he can unpack his suitcase, he is whisked off on his first expedition, to the sands of Arabia, where the world’s only phoenix prepares to lay its new egg. When disaster strikes, Nate quickly finds himself all alone.
Will he be able to see the phoenix safely hatched, keep his accidental pet gremlin out of trouble, and rescue his guardian from the Bedouin? If he fails, nothing will stand between the world’s mythical creatures and extinction. Too bad Nate’s not the sort of boy who enjoys adventure . . . yet.
This short little book is packed full of good stuff. Starting with poor Nate, who’s not sure he’ll ever live up to the Fludd family reputation. Then there’s also lots of thrilling early 1900’s era adventure. And mythical creatures who aren’t so mythical—you know, just like a certain Professional Mews we all know and love.
