The Creature of the Pines
The Creature of the Pines | Adam Gidwitz
3 posts | 7 read | 4 to read
A fully illustrated, globe-trotting new middle grade fantasy-adventure series about mythical creatures and their cultures of origin, from the Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitor's Tale. Elliot Eisner isn't exactly excited about starting at a brand-new school in a brand-new town; he'd much rather stay at home and read a book. But things take an unexpected turn when he finds out his weird new teacher, Professor Fauna, has planned a field trip for Elliot's very first day. Along with a new friend--brave, outspoken Uchenna Devereaux--Elliot gets caught up in a secret group of adventurers, The Unicorn Rescue Society, whose goal is to protect and defend the world's mythical creatures. Together with Professor Fauna, Elliot and Uchenna must help rescue a Jersey Devil from a duo of conniving, greedy billionaires, the Schmoke Brothers. Unicorn Rescue Society is an exciting and hilarious new series about friendship, adventure, and mythical creatures from around the world by Newbery Honor-winning author Adam Gidwitz teamed up with Mixtape Club founders Jesse Casey and Chris Smith, and Hatem Aly, illustrator of The Inquisitor's Tale.

I was definitely expecting more from this book. It is an easy read but did not grab or hold my attention at all.

Definitely going to recommend this one at work. This new series is part nature walk, part social studies, all adventure. It has dashes of The Phantom Tollbooth and A Series of Unfortunate Events in it's smart, humorous style, and it's a fast paced read. This will be a great pick for kids who like outdoor adventures, animals, and magic.

Unicorns have been pretty hot in books right now. I love that this one has boys on the cover.
