After deciding to try out some fireworks in their room the damage has to be remedied. Along with re-decorating the ceiling, a new rug is needed. When the new rug arrives though, the children find a strange sort of egg wrapped up in it. Thus the children come into possession of a Phoenix, and a magic carpet. Of course lots of adventures and mayhem are caused by the children as a consequence.
Sitting here after just reading this I must admit that I found this absolutely charming as well as quite humorous in places. Ideal for children to read, or to be read to them, this is something that will bring back a bit of nostalgia to adults re-reading it after all these years.
I had no idea it is the 2nd part of a trilogy, so I learnt something new!
Interesting to see how attitudes have changed over the years.
I read this because I quite liked '5 Children and It' and this book is similar in many ways (a wishing carpet instead of a Sand Fairy), but overall I actually think Phoenix is a better book, the stories seem more rounded somehow. In my opinion the ending is better too.
I still enjoyed it though.
Although it is a bit dated, the idea is nice. If a little moralistic, here and there - and Vicar's don't seem to get a good press!
This book must be somewhere in the house! Meanwhile, I'll enjoy this version.
