Booklist - 06/01/2018 There’s no rest for the members of the Unicorn Rescue Society, a secret organization devoted to protecting mythical creatures. Indeed, the day after Elliot and Uchenna help Professor Fauna save a Jersey Devil (The Creature of the Pines, 2018), they are called upon to find a missing herensuge (dragon) in the Basque Country of Spain. Professor Fauna whisks them off in his battered plane, conveniently parked in the faculty lot, with anxious Elliot’s worries during the flight standing in entertaining contrast to Uchenna’s enthusiasm. Miraculously, they arrive in one piece and meet with Mitxel Mendizabal, fellow society member and guardian of the errant dragon. Soon they realize the horrible billionaire Schmoke brothers are once more involved and guilty of dragon-napping. Filmmaker Casey joins Gidwitz in writing this breathless series installment, which will sweep up readers within its opening pages. Facts about the Basque Country and herensuge mythology are peppered through the short chapters, along with phonetic pronunciation prompts when necessary. Though unseen for review, Aly’s artwork will be liberally featured in this spirited, addictive read. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
