Aziza's Secret Fairy Door and the Magic Puppy
Illustrated by Cory ReidAges 6 to 8
Aziza's Secret Fairy Door and the Magic Puppy is the fifth title in this fun and inclusive, young magical adventure series for readers of 6-8 from Lola Morayo. Inspired by fairies and creatures from world mythology this is gorgeously illustrated in black-and-white throughout by Cory Reid.
Aziza's brother Otis is pestering their parents for a dog. Again. Even though they're not allowed pets in the flat. Aziza is sympathetic, but soon forgets about all this when she enters her room to find the fairy door making a ticking noise - almost like a clock - and spring flowers all around it. Soon, she is stepping through the fairy door - but not before her brother, Otis, runs up to her and enters the fairy door too.
Aziza and Otis arrive in time for the Spring fete, and they are about to unveil the town clock, marking the arrival of Spring and growth. But the clock is broken. Otis and the naughty fairies, the Gigglers, haven't noticed and are too busy playing fetch with their new and friendly dog.
But it's up to Aziza, Otis, Peri and Tiko to find help fix the clock before it's too late.
