This is the second book in the Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series. Overall I enjoyed it, although it is a pretty short book meant for younger readers.
Right on the heels of his first adventure with the Phoenix, Nathaniel is spirited away by his Aunt to help capture a Basilisk that has gone astray.
This book is very short, would probably take an adult 20-30 minutes to read, but is very readable and enjoyable. There are nice pictures throughout so children just starting chapter books would be a good fit.
The pace is fast and the action non-stop. The mythology behind all the different beasties is interesting. I love reading about mythical creatures so this book was right up my alley. Children who like reading about adventure, travel, or magical creatures should get into this book. It is an easy read and entertaining. I look forward to the next book in the series.
