Quest for the Simurgh."
I like the cover picture which comes from an old Arabic text on animals. The bird? Yes, that's a simurgh. The red is also a very nice color for a Christmas present. The reading level is 5th-8th grades.
The book is available in print and ebook on Amazon.

The village magician has gone missing. His four pupils think he has left a clue to his whereabouts in the Magicalis Bestialis--the book of magical creatures. They must seek the help of the elusive Simurgh, the mythical birds who know all the secrets of the universe.
However, this is not an easy camping trip into the mountains. Spirits, gods, and demons confront the four friends, who are not aware they’re being set up by otherworldly forces for a much larger task.
The adventurers--a farmer’s daughter, a slave, an orphan and, a rich merchant’s son--although divided by Dev, the evil god of war, must band together to find the Simurgh, rescue their teacher, and stave off Armageddon.
