School Library Journal - 05/01/2014 Gr 6–9—Zoe and Logan are trying to figure out who killed the goose that laid the golden eggs. With another cliff-hanger ending, readers will be eagerly awaiting the next title. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 05/15/2014 After safely returning the litter of griffins to their enclosure in The Menagerie (2013), Zoe and Logan are dismayed to find Pelly—the haughty, demanding, gold-egg-laying goose—missing and her nest covered in blood and feathers. A dragon stands accused and faces possible extermination, but the kids are sure he is innocent, so they launch an investigation. This second volume in the lighthearted series is just as full of madcap adventures, animated magical creatures, and crackerjack detective work from the cast of well-rounded, multicultural kids as the first title. Fans will be thrilled at the promise of deeper mysteries in subsequent volumes. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.
