Imagine a place where not only legendary creatures such as griffins and unicorns live, but other strange, magical creatures live too, and they all live in harmony with humans; this is the world that Jackson Pearce and Maggie Stiefvater have invented in their novel Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures.
Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures, however, is not a guide. It is a story about a young girl named Pip who loves magical creatures.
This love gets her into trouble when she discovers that riding show unicorns in a crowd is not a good idea due to their arrogance of their own perfection.
After tearing through her school’s parking lot in this unicorn incident, Pip gets sent to her Aunt Emma’s clinic for magical creatures to help out over the summer. There she not only visits her aunt and cousin, but meets a very important friend named Tomas.
Just as everything appears to be looking up for Pip, a new creature called a Fuzzle arrives and begins to wreak havoc in the town.
Together, Pip and Tomas must test their friendship by finding all of the Fuzzles and saving the town from them.
Overall, this book is a fun, easy read with an interesting plot. It seems like the kind of story young, beginning readers would really enjoy. Even those who are older may enjoy it as a quick, relaxing book for the summer.
In general, this book seems like the kind that would become popular at elementary school book fairs everywhere. If this is true and Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures is coming to shelves near you, definitely pick it up and read it!
