9780061252228: The Last Phoenix

She's no ordinary bird. . . .

For stepsiblings Milly, Michael, Jason, and Jess, life has never been trickier. Milly's worried about her singing audition, Michael's losing his friends, Jason's never going to get picked for any sports teams, and as Jess's exams loom closer, she can't seem to remember anything. But then Fenella, the only living phoenix in the world, swoops into their lives looking for help—and their problems really begin!

Fenella has laid a magical egg, but if she wants it to hatch she needs four very special ingredients, scattered throughout time to the far corners of the world. So the children embark on a hair-raising hunt across the world, through the past, present, and future. And with a crazed phoenix-worshipping cult on their tail, a grumpy gryphon to soothe, and time paradoxes to avoid, Milly, Michael, Jason, and Jess will need all their wits and bravery if they hope to succeed.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5–In this sequel to Be a Genie in Six Easy Steps (HarperCollins, 2009) stepsiblings Milly, Michael, Jason, and Jess meet up with Fenella, a phoenix with a problem. She needs help to gather the sacred ingredients that will help her hatch her baby, an event that has never before been possible. The children are given magical feathers to travel through time and are tempted to use the powers of the sacred ingredients to solve their own personal problems. They soon find out that there are no shortcuts to overcoming troubles and that it takes courage and determination to face the obstacles that get in the way of success. Children who grew up loving Mary Pope Osborne's “Magic Tree House” series (Random) will enjoy this lively romp into the world of the mystical and magical. The story moves quickly, and the characters come with their own peculiarities, strengths, and weaknesses that endear them to readers. Though the book contains undisguised lessons in making good choices, the negative toll of lies, and the consequences of self-promotion, they do not detract from the adventure. The happily-ever-after ending is a satisfying conclusion to the trials and tribulations suffered by the children in their efforts to do the right thing and help a friend in need.–Debra Banna, Sharon Public Library, MA.
