This is the first book of the series of Nathaniel Fludd Beastologist. It's a very easy book to read for young teenagers, but a very good book. If you like things about mythical creatures and animals, this would be the book you might try reading. I really enjoyed this first book of the series. It might seem boring at first, but once you start to read more and more, and story gets more interesting. It's a short little book, so it's going to fit for people who don't like reading thick, fat books like Harry Potter or Twilight. The story is about a little boy called Nate. His parents have been gone overseas for years and he lives with Miss Lumpton, his guardian. Later on, he got a message that his parents are not coming back anymore and he had to go live with his aunt who he has never even met. So that's what happened. Nate was moved to live with his Aunt Phil who was a beastologist. Nate haven't been with his parents much, so he doesn't really have an idea of what they do everyday. So when Aunt Phil started bringing all these topics up, Nate had no clue what she was talking about. Aunt Phil explains to Nate about the Fludd family and beastologists, and what beastologists do. Beastologists are people who study beasts and try to protect them. Common people don't know about them and think that they're only in fairytales and myths. In this book, Nate had to go to Arabia along with Aunt Phil to train to become a beastologist, as he was the only Fludd left (not including Aunt Phil). The two went to Arabia to see the rebirth of the phoenix, which happens once every 500 years. But then, Aunt Phil was taken away by the nomads for intruding "their land". Now, Nate who has completely no experience with beasts or mythical creature he thought never existed, had to take care of the phoenix.

I really like this book, although it was a bit easy for me to read. It's still a great book, with some details written in it. The author does a good job for describing about the situations. :D
