The Enchanted Egg: The Magical Animal Adoption Agency Book 2 by Kallie George

Mr. Jams brought home an odd egg from his last trip that Clover can't wait to see hatch.  They don't know what kind of animal it is so it will be a surprise.  She gets a bit nervous when he goes off to find an expert on magical animals but he says she'll be fine.  He said that last time, too...

Disney/Hyperion and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 3rd, so you can get a copy then.

I enjoyed the first book in this series, so I had to see what new adventures Clover has.  Giants come and almost dislodge the cottage door by knocking.  They're looking for a special pet.  A leprechaun brings his daughter in search of the perfect pet.  And the wicked witch sends her a batch of kittens that have magical powers.  If that's not enough to keep her busy, the egg hatches!  What do you do when you can't see what hatched?  The egg was big, so it should be good sized.  Where could it be hiding?  Was it dangerous?

The magical animals are great fun to read about.  Clover has a strong character and carries on despite challenges.  She's willing to work hard.  And she's good at matching people with the right animal.  This series makes me smile.  I'm sure young readers are anxious to get the next in the series.  I hope there will be more.
