School Library Journal - 04/01/2023 Gr 3–5—In this sequel to series starter Quest for the Unicorn Horn, the Extincts try to raise funds by opening a zoo and gift shop at ROAR headquarters. Bear Ursa, passenger pigeon Martie, saber-toothed tiger Scratch, and poison frog Quito all support this new endeavor; however, mammoth Lug just wants to be out in the world helping others. After Lug loses his temper at a zoo visitor, he quits the venture and heads to California to fight wildfires. When a mysterious arsonist turns out to be an unexpected foe with a fiery desire for vengeance, Lug and the rest of the Extincts must save the day once more. Strikingly rendered, this action-packed middle grade graphic novel blends a quest for purpose with a strong environmental message. Readers will also gain a crash course in smokejumpers and wildfires. VERDICT Purchase where the first book is popular, as context with the Extincts' origins is a must. - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
