Synopsis: Young Clover seems to have the worst luck—until she happens upon a help-wanted ad from an animal adoption agency. She soon discovers that it is a place like no other. Instead of regular pets, this agency houses magical creatures: fairy horses, unicorns, a young dragon with a temperamental snout. All of a sudden, Clover finds herself in a new world of wizards, princesses and witches who will test her strength, courage and luck.
200words (or less) review: The first book in The Magical Animal Adoption Agency Series is lovely. I requested it on a whim and I’m very grateful Disney approved me because I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Clover believes she is unlucky. If something can go wrong it will and she is most unlucky when it comes to pets. Her summer holiday begins when her best friend goes to camp and a football is kicked through Clover’s bedroom window, letting her pet bird escape. Trying to retrieve it Clover comes across the ad for The Magical Animal Adoption Agency. Mr Jams hires Clover to help over the summer but just the next day she is left unexpectedly in charge – more bad luck.
Kallie George has individual stories for some of the magical creatures in Clover’s care, which are funny and lovely at the same time. I thought there was a lot of positive content in the book; Clover’s perceived bad luck that bought her to the agency. The importance placed on picking the right owners for the animals. Also Alexandra Boiger’s illustrations are charming.
Clovers Luck is a great introduction to this series and I hope to read more about The Magical Animal Adoption Agency.
