MMGM: Flight of the Phoenix

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.

Flight of the Phoenix

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.

Flight of the Phoenix by R.L. LaFevers. If you haven’t read this one, I highly suggest you get your paws on a copy soon!

I am the Professional Mews for Cindy Strandvold, as well as a huge fan of middle-grade books. Which, coincidentally, is the age Cindy writes for.

    Sounds like adventure and mayhem to me. How can I not be interested? Thanks for the recommendation. 🙂

  2. I recently read this one too. Such a cute little book, and great for the younger end of Middle Grade. Seems like it would b a great transition for kids heading into that next level of reading.

  3. I love the cover and totally want to read this one. It sounds cute and interesting. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!
