Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures (#1)

Jackson Pearce, Maggie Stiefvater

Pip is a girl who can talk to magical creatures. Her aunt is a vet for magical creatures. And her new friend Tomas is allergic to most magical creatures. When things go amok - and they often go amok - Pip consults Jeffrey Higgleston’s Guide to Magical Creatures, a reference work that Pip finds herself constantly amending.

Because dealing with magical creatures like unicorns, griffins, and fuzzles doesn’t just require book knowledge - it requires hands-on experience and thinking on your feet. For example, when fuzzles (which have an awful habit of bursting into flames when they’re agitated) invade your town, it’s not enough to know what the fuzzles are…Pip and Tomas also must trace the fuzzles' agitation to its source, and in doing so, save the whole town.

Review

Pip lives in a world filled with magical creatures and she has a special skill that no-one else has – she can speak to them. Her talent can also get her into big trouble, such as the unfortunate (but hilarious) incident of the unicorn stampede.

Pip’s aunt is a vet for magical creatures and when Pip gets to help her for the summer it’s a dream come true. But then the Fuzzles take over the town, bursting into flames at the worst possible moments. Pip and her new friend, Tomas, who is allergic to practically everything, must figure out how to control them before the town burns to the ground.

This is a fun magical adventure for animal lovers, brought to life by Jackson Pearce’s talent with words and Maggie Stiefvater’s trademark witty and fun illustrations. An enjoyable read for ages 8 and up.
