    Great for an 8 year old boy

    My son is in the third grade and loves these books - he is reading the whole series.

    I love this series and am kind of obsessed with it.

    The Unicorn's Tale by R. L. LaFevers, illustrated by Kelly Murphy (2011)

    Book 4 in the Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series

    Since I have already reviewed book 1, book 2 and book 3 of the Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series I decided that for book 4 I didn't need to go in depth with background information. SPOILER: I loved all of the books. Much as it pains me to say this, we're really at the point in the series where you have to read the previous books to keep up.

    In addition to featuring one of my favorite mythical creatures (I'm on Team Unicorn) this book gets back to basics established in book one. Nathaniel and Aunt Phil stay together for the entire story, Cornelius the Dodo is back. And we learn more about Nate's parents.

    The mythological beast story was charming and worked well with the more ongoing story of Nathaniel's missing parents. We are also treated to an excerpt from the Book of Beasts (instead of a glossary) filled with information on the various kinds of unicorns. As usual Murphy's illustrations are gorgeous and add a fun dimension to the story.

    I love this series and am kind of obsessed with it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an old fashioned adventure-fantasy for the younger set.

    Cute story!!

    The fourth installment of Nathaniel Fludd's journeys brought us to the beautiful and well loved unicorns. The Fludds have documented several different types of unicorns several of which the Fludds have recorded and never seen again. But when Nate and his aunt trek out to help a unicorn in need, will Nate find the clues he needs in order to save his parents?

    This is a cute story for any child who is interested in the fantastic world. It will introduce or make them a little more familiar with all sorts of fantastic beasts. This was a fun story, and leaves plenty of mystery to make the young readers wait in anticipation for the next book!! The action in this book is appropriate for a younger crowd, keeps the plot moving along without being scary for younger readers.
