Abstract:

"Eden has befriended a strange and gentle beast, the qilin, who lives on the slopes of the Hissing Volcano and whose favourite food is the fire flower, a mysterious new plant. Eden is keen to study this plant further for its magical properties, however, her precious Plant Spell Book is still in Garton the Ghastlys possession. Garton, meanwhile, has tricked the fairies into believing he cant read and that the book is useless to him, so that they dont suspect he is plotting another evil plan to overthrow them. But he is planning the biggest nasty surprise of them all to march on the fairy castle itself and attack, with the help of his loyal goblin army, some enormous fierce flytraps and, his most important weapon, the qilin, who, with the help of the spell book, Garton has turned from a kind friend to the fairies into a vicious, angry beast who obeys his every evil command. But the fairies are a lot smarter than Garton had counted on, and, after a spectacular and dramatic battle, they employ some of their most unusual and powerful magic plus an ingenious idea involving Fafnir the Dragon to ward off the goblin army and save their home. Eden discovers a way to return the qilin to its normal self using the magical fire flower, and the fairies celebrate their narrow victory."--Provided by publisher.
