Summary

From best-selling authors Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pearce comes an exciting new series full of magical creatures and whimsical adventures.

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 flame 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.

Hidden gem!

Found this quite by accident and so pleased we did. A lovely magical, moral and very human tale told with humour and good sense to appeal to young children.

Loved it

Listened to this with my 7 y/o granddaughter. We both loved it! The narrator was perfect for telling the story.

kids loved

the voice actor was fun a lively and the story had my 7 and 9 year olds very intrigued while I was able to not grow bored. We will be buying them all.

The reader compliments the story beautifully.

More annoying than my little pony

After 20 minutes of self-absorbed unicorns shouting (in a little kids voice) "look at me", we couldn't take it any more.
