Sue Bentley: A Summer Spell

Ries This series is extremely popular and I can definitely see why This book presents that there is such a thing as a magic kitten who s really part of a grandiose royal conspiracy plot Add to it the fact that the kitten saves the girl from a boring summer in the country and you get instant excitement I had a difficult time liking the girl I found her rude and manipulative in a way where her age could not excuse such behavior Regardless I nderstand the draw for early readers The book does have a good deal of suspense and adventure and I wasn t always sure what kind of magic the kitten would do next I m intrigued by the grand plot though and how that will work throughout the series I m not sure if I will read all the books but you never know For early readers kitten fans readers looking for fantasy and adventure readers wanting wish fulfillment Possible red flags talking back to adults poaching animals magic obvious prejudice toward a group of travelersgypsies on part of the police This book is so great I read it over and over that s how good the book is I love the book magic kitten If you didn t think The Lion King could get any weirder you are wrong Take talking animal kingdom and replace Simba with Simba 20 or Prince Flame and you have yourself a magical lion on the run from his ncle It basically is the classic tale you remember but with a lot serious topics1 Racism against Romany gypsies We learn halfway through the story that certain white men of privileg Obviously I was much much younger when I read these booksIf you ve got a younger brother or sister or a child I d highly recommend these books for children p to about age 11 The storylines were imaginative and fun while the words weren t too difficult to process Kids with love the adventures of this little kitten who s actually a lion prince hiding from his The Long Road Home uncle I love animals so this was an amazing story My 5 year old daughter and me read this together and she so fell in love This is her new favorite book and she can t wait to read the next one It s magical funny and sincere all at the same time My only criticism of this book is that the cover doesn t accurately reflect the content The cover with its giant eyed kitty on a background of sparkly stars looks like it s going to be a Rainbow Magic like read for 2nd and 3rd graders looking for something gentle and sweet But the story is darker and the issues complex than that Flame an orange kitten is really a lion prince in disguise on the run from anncle who wants to kill him and The Sweetest Burn (Broken Destiny, usurp the throne 10 year old Lisa visiting her aunt in the English countryside finds Flame in the barn and immediately bonds with the kitten She is astonished to find that Flame can talk and perform magic such as making her invisible doing the dishes in a twinkling and healing a horse s leg This is a well told interesting story but here are some of the book s darker elements the poaching and killing of deer including a scene where Lisa encounters deer carcasses guns and gunfire an evilncle tracking down his nephew in order to kill him and prejudice against Romani gypsies I was pleased that Lisa showed growth in how she came to appreciate her aunt s kindness and enjoyed the charming setting the suspenseful story and the warm relationship between Lisa and Flame My sister she is 7 but at the time was 6 read it and thought that it was the best thing in the world and my parents and I had been trying to get her to read for months I thought If this made her want to read then I had better read it so be can get books that she will read For a while she only read fantasy because that was the only genre that she liked Now she is reading non fiction as well but only about kittens i love it cats are my favorite animals.

Ries Oh and by the way in one of the books he is a black catI agree with my daughter that the book covers are absolutely adorable I m a real sucker for a cute kitten Sue Bentley provides the key ingredients to a story that is a sure winner with the demographic it intends to target namely middle grade girls You can t go wrong combining a young girl suffering from a sense of injustice caused by her parents a cute kitten who talks and performs magic and a mystery in which our young girl rises to become a hero All the Magic Kitten books follow this formula it works In fact I would say that one thing Bentley does really well is to create intrigue chapters The Greek Tycoons Revenge usually end with relatively dramatic cliffhangersI didn t much care for Lisa the young girl in this particular book When we first meet Lisa she is shockingly rude to her aunt Upon their first meeting Lisa tells her aunt the followingI didn t want to come here Mum forced me to stay with youHer aunt Rose isnbelievably kind and patientWell I d better make sure you enjoy yourself then Long Brackby may not compare with America but it has a lot to offerAunt Rose totally rocks in this book she is just a really cool aunt She completely nderstands that her niece is pset with the situation her parents going off to America without her and reacts to her with such compassion that I am left The Queens Choice uite impressed I m not sure that Lisa ever completely redeems herself in the story She still disobeys her aunt throughout the story putting herself in grave dangerWhich brings me to two issues I have with this book1 I have a problem with what I feel is a loose plot We see Lisa beginning to treat her aunt with respect and to start acting responsibly once Flame enters her life I was a bit surprised when Lisa decided to disobey her aunt and sneak off after dark to explore the mystery of the poachers in the surrounding woods I felt like this was not a logical place for the plot to go given Lisa s changes in attitude THAT VERY DAY and given the promises she made her very generous aunt It seemed that the plot took on an illogical direction out of convenience so that the rest of the story could make sense2 Call me crazy well not to my face but what 10 year old girl would go in the woods after dark with the idea to take photographs of poachers ie MEN WITH GUNS I m a little alarmed that this was treated as not such a big deal After all Flame the magic kitten and the eually irresponsible neighbor boy John were there to protect her Right Couldn t the mystery have been who is stealing the Angorra rabbits her aunt is breeding Or who is putting sugar in everybody s gas tanks Or anything not involving firearms It felt a little heavy for a Magic Kitten book The rest of the books as far as I can remember don t involve the same level of danger I think Then again every Magic Kitten book starts with a Prologue detailing how Uncle Ebony wants to kill his nephew Flame hmmmm My bottom line Well I can t NOT recommend a book based on a kitten after which my kids named their kitten can I The kids really enjoyed this book as well as the other books in the Magic Kitten series All the books include a young girl as the main character but my son enjoys the books regardless This is a very easy read I read the book in less than 30 minutes therefore it is not much of a challenge for 8 years old Nonetheless the stories are intriguing and they areite heartwarming I can fully appreciate and The Cowboy Wants a Wife! understand the appeal of having a secret loyal and magical friend especially in the form of a cutie pie little kitten at a time when you are experiencing turmoil in your life It isite simplymagicalCome visit To Defy a Sheikh us at our website wwwmotherdaughterbookreviewscom This is another book in myest to explore different juvenile se.

This review consists of two parts 1 my review Mom s and 2 my daughter s review of this bookDAUGHTER SAYS Once Whiteout (Threes Allowed, upon a time there was a kittenmeow except it wasn t really a kitten it was a magic lion named Prince Flame There was an evil lion named Ebony who was hisncle who wanted to kill him because he wanted to be the ruler of the kingdom So Flame goes into the human world to hide from his The Princes Ultimate Deception (Monte Carlo Affairs, uncle and he meets a girl named Lisa Lisa is spending the summer at her Aunt Rose s house while her parents are away She thinks that it s going to be a horrible summerntil she finds Flame When she meets Flame Flame thinks she s a monster and Lisa is scared because Flame talks but then they figure out that they are both nice Lisa and Flame meet John and they start hanging out together andthey solve mystery of the poachers Flame has to go back to his own world at the end of the bookWhat I liked and disliked about it I really like the pictures of the kittens on the front cover of the book and I like the story I liked it when Lisa and Flame first meet because they have no idea what each other are and are scared of each other I wish I had a magic kitten so that I could talk to it secretly and I could hide it in my desk at school so that it could tell me the answers to the math problems At first John was mean but he turned out to be nice It was cool how John s Grandma knew that Flame was magic so Lisa could share her special secret with someone It was a bad idea for Lisa to sneak out of her aunt s house at night to go take pictures of the poachers She could have been caught and kidnapped or shot by the poachers But maybe it was a little bit safer because she had a magic kitten to protect her I didn t like that the kitten was really a lion because I wanted it to stay a cute little kittenMy bottom line I like the Magic Kitten stories a lot I have read many other ones and they are just as good as this one I like that there is a different colored kitten in each book and they are all super cute I would recommend this book to my friends who are girls Boys probably wouldn t like them because the main characters are always girlsMOM SAYS Magic Kitten A Summer Spell is the first book in the Magic Kitten series written by British author Sue Bentley The Magic Kitten series are distinguisable by their book covers featuring a different and completely adorable kitten on each all with emerald green eyes The premise of the series is that Prince Flame a young white lion and rightful heir to the Lion Throne in another world is on the run from his evil Uncle Ebony who killed his parents and claimed the throne for himself Ebony is chasing Flame trying to kill him in order to stay on as the ruler of the kingdom Flame cannot match the strength of his Breaking the Governesss Rules uncle therefore he escapes into the human world disguised as an adorable kitten In each of the books Flame meets a different young girl who is in the midst of some crisis For example in the first book A Summer Spell Flame meets Lisa whonwillingly has to spend the summer with her aunt when her parents go to America without her In each of the books the kitten and the girl help each other through their troubles and in the end they part ways with the The Christmas Children (The Mellow Years understanding that their connection was only meant to be at that moment in timeWhat I liked and disliked about it Both my kids love the Magic Kitten books to the extent that when we got two kittens my son decided to name him Flame even though he s completely black Not surprisingly when people come to our house meet our cat and ask his name wesually get a puzzled look when we say Flame Apparently most people expect that the name Flame is most appropriate for an orange cat But really Flame was named after the adorable kitten in the Magic Kitten se.
