Review for Amelia Fang and the Naughty Caticorns
A new Amelia Fang book, this time no adventures but new family and kittens with horns.
After skipping one book (because I am sooo not a fan of screaming and shouting Florence and other yetis (which is sad as I normally love yetis)) I am back again with Amelia Fang. This is the book in which she gets a baby sibling which I already knew about since I read the Worldbookday book some time ago.
I do have to say I miss the adventures in this one. I am looking forward to each Amelia Fang book and then especially the adventures she will have. Sadly, in this one with the exception of the OMG what is happening around the ending, it was actually very tame and fluffy.
It mostly focused on Amelia Fang’s parents and her mom’s pregnancy, Amelia wants to be the best big sister she can be and she gets a chance to show off that when her aunt pops by (I wasn’t a big fan of her aunt as it was all ME ME ME/I I I) and drops off three adorable caticorns. Oh poor Amelia. She thought it would be easy to care for these cats because they are adorable… oh boy. I had quite a laugh at the chaos the little ones spread throughout Amelia’s house, that trio is naughty 9001%. I felt for poor Amelia as she just wants to be kind and nice and catsit those cuties and all she gets back is chaos, a dirty house, and something precious lost. At times I just wanted to hug her and tell her she was doing a fine job. That everything would be fine.
I wasn’t always a fan of the caticorns and while we get a sobstory on why they were acting like this later and I did warm up, I still was annoyed greatly at the antics of this trio. Especially as Amelia wasn’t her aunt and actually listened to them and treated them kindly.
I have to say the two best parts of the book are when Amelia meets her baby sibling and that part before Amelia’s aunt + parents come back and the caticorns have run away. Especially that last part was amazing and had a lot of fun action in it.
The art was really fun and adorable.
I can’t wait for the next story in this series though I do hope there is plenty of action and magical adventures again. crosses fingers
