Publisher Comments:

Ten-year-old Nathaniel Fludd is the reluctant hero of Flight of the Phoenix (2009), the madcap debut of the American author R. L. LaFeversand#8217;s Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series and a Junior Library Guild selection. The year is 1928, the setting England, and Nateand#8217;s wayward parents have just been reported lost at sea. Nate is sent that very day to his Aunt Philand#8217;s house in Batting-at-the-Flies, but not for long . . . The morning after he arrives at the renowned beastologistand#8217;s doorstep, she whisks him away to the Arabian desert to witness a phoenix lay an egg! Kelly Murphyand#8217;s cartoonish black-and-white pen-and-ink illustrations add charm and humor to an already delightful adventure sure to please fans of mythology, maps, camels, and gremlins. Includes a glossary of terms from and#8220;cartographerand#8221; to and#8220;Tidy Sum.and#8221;
Donand#8217;t miss the next books in the Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series: The Basiliskand#8217;s Lair (Book 2), The Wyvernsand#8217; Treasure (Book 3), and The Unicornand#8217;s Tale (Book 4)!

Synopsis:

With his parents lost at sea, Nathaniel Fludd lands on the doorstep of a distant cousin--the world's last remaining beastologist. Soon Nate is whisked off on his first expedition, in this first in a new illustrated chapter book series filled with mysterious beasts, magic, and far-flung exploration. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Nathaniel Fludds life has taken a turn for the worst. With his parents lost at sea, he lands on the doorstep of a distant cousin—the worlds last remaining beastologist. Soon Nate is whisked off on his first expedition, to Arabia, where the worlds only phoenix prepares to lay its new egg. When disaster strikes, Nate quickly finds himself all alone.

       Will he be able to see the phoenix safely hatched, keep his accidental pet gremlin out of trouble, and rescue his guardian from the Bedouin? If he fails, nothing will stand between the worlds mythical creatures and extinction.

Too bad Nates not the sort of boy who enjoys adventure . . .yet.
