Orchard Books, 2014. ISBN 9781408326251.
(Age: 8+) Highly recommended. Magic Animal Friends: Lucy Longwhiskers gets lost is a short novel aimed at girls aged 8+. Lily and Jess are best friends and it is holidays. They both love animals and enjoyed helping around Lily's family animal hospital. Imagine their surprise when they discover Friendship Forest, a magical place with talking animals. They are brought to Friendship Forest by Goldie the cat who the girls had looked after in the human world. Goldie believes the Forest is in danger and needs the girls to help with a witch.
Magic Animal Friends: Lucy Longwhiskers gets lost is a quick moving adventure for girls and is highly recommended for independent readers just moving into novels. The text is easy to read and will appeal to any girl who loves animals and magic.
