Evie Scruffypup's Big Surprise (Magic Animal Friends #10)
Lily and Jess are excited to visit Friendship Forest for Blossom Day, but Grizelda has a terrible trick in store! When Grizelda casts a spell on Evie Scruffypup to make all Evie's fun surprises mischievous ones, can the girls undo the spell before Blossom Day is ruined?
The line drawings that accompany the story are quite cute, and I can see the map being used as a starting place for a recreation of Friendship Forest. It would be easy to populate this with stuffed animals and baby dolls, and hours of play could result.
For readers who enjoyed Baglio's Animal Ark Pets or have finished all of Bentley's Magic Puppy series, Magic Animal Friends books offer a familiar story line, cute animals, and friends working together to help each other and their community.
