Gr 1-4–In this third installment in the “Magical Rescue Vets” series, Rosie and Kat face a new challenge as animal helpers in the fantastical world of Starfall Forest. In their own world, Rosie feels like the adults in her life treat her like a baby. When she offers to assist with cooking, her mom tells her she’s too young; she asks her father if she can help him practice for the school show, but he doesn’t seem to need her either. The girls visit Starfall Forest through their usual secret door, and notice the animals need their help more than ever—because they have all turned into babies! They discover a misguided Phoenix is to blame. This saccharine addition to the series deftly handles a young child feeling babied alongside its magical plot. Rosie is depicted with white skin and light hair, while Kat is Black with dark curly hair. An opening Starfall Forest map and sweet monochrome spot-art bring this charming, gentle series to sparkling life.
VERDICT This series focuses on friendship, teamwork, and adorable magical creatures. Recommended for young fans of animal rescue books and the cutest of happy endings.
