The Enchanted Egg: 09/25/18

The Enchanted Egg

The Enchanted Egg by Kallie George is the second of the Magical Animal Adoption Agency trilogy. Clover is left in charge of the agency while Mr. Jam heads out to consult with an expert in magical eggs because one has shown up that he doesn't recognize.

Of course while Mr. Jam is away the egg hatches and Clover has to find the animal and then figure out what it is and how to feed it. While she is dealing with an unknown baby she's also still working her charm with matching magical animals to magical adopters.

The main plot was cute but the part that really charmed me were Clover's interactions with the adopters. In particular, a Leprechaun father brings in his daughter to adopt a pet. He believes she needs a real pet to counteract her overactive imagination. (It turns out she can actually see invisible animals).

As Clover notes, she has never heard of Leprechaun families or female Leprechauns. She sort of imagines them as green wearing, rainbow and gold loving Smurfs. Turns out they are just secretive and prefer to keep their villages hidden to most people.

There's one book left, This Missing Magic (2016) which I will be reading soon.

Five stars
