Synopsis: Most people think that dragons and unicorns don’t exist outside of story books – but Kat and Rosie know better! The best friends have been helping out at Calico Comfrey’s Veterinary Surgery ever since they stumbled across its secret door one summer holiday.

Review: What a sweet story, I love that the magic world in the story is connected to the normal world but only a few people get to see it. Makes the whole world even more magical.
Kat is struggling with the changes in her household with her parents new baby and her chaotic brothers and being ignored. She takes solace in the magical forest and finds a sick dragon and has to help it.
I loved getting to explore the world with Kat, Rosie and the Doctors, meeting all the gnomes and sweet little magical animals. I loved that the girls cared so much about their lives and wanted to do all they could to help out and find the reasons why the gems weren’t growing and also why the dragons were getting sick.
This was so beautiful, had beautiful illustrations, sweet characters and a dream magical world with so much to learn and explore. I adored reading this story, it was such a beautiful magical escape and I know that anyone that reads this will adore it too.
