First Aid for Faeries and Other Fabled Beasts by Lari DonAdolescent Fantasy
Helen's first love is music and she has little time or attention for her mother's veterinary skills until the night a centaur crashes into her life. The centaur needs lots of help, and not just the medical kind. He reluctantly enlists Helen to help him correct a mistake he made. Helen teams up with the centaur, a shape-shifting selkie, a cranky dragon and a very Tinkerbell-like fairy to fix their mistake, the theft of an important book, before their parents find out, and before it falls into some very wrong hands.
This was a very clean book, absolutely nothing inappropriate in it so parents could hand it to a young reader with no fear. It is probably best for elementary readers and would probably not be of interest to teens. The British, or Welsh, setting was very new to me and enjoyable. It seemed to be one of those books that could be read in any time---just a good, old-fashioned fantasy adventure story.
