One day when Ashfield Rover is napping under a tree (he’s supposed to be watching his grazing cows), he is woken by a bump on the head. He picks up a rock, warm and swirling with colours. This strange rock is the beginning of his adventures with his two friends. When the ‘rock’ hatches, Ashfield is told he has been chosen to be Keeper of the Phoenix. The tiny ugly bird that has hatched is demanding but Ash’s responsibility and they are soon forced to emark on a quest full of danger and magic.
