"From bestselling authors Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pearce comes an exciting new series full of magical creatures, whimsical adventures, and quirky illustrations. Here's a list of things Pip Bartlett can talk to: Unicorns, Miniature Silky Griffins, Bitterflunks. Basically, all magical creatures. Here's a list of things she can't talk to (at least, not very well): Parents, Teachers, Basically, all people. Because of a Unicorn Incident at her school (it was an accident!), Pip is spending the summer with her Aunt Emma at the Cloverton Clinic for Magical Creatures. At first, it's all fun, games, and chatting with Hobgrackles, but when Fuzzles appear and start bursting into flame at the worst possible places, Pip and her new friend Tomas must take action. Because if the mystery of the Fuzzles isn't solved soon, both magical and unmagical creatures are going to be in a lot of trouble"--From the publisher.

This was a fun read.

Pip Bartlett can talk to magical animals. Of course no one believes her. During a bring-your-parents-to-school day she rides a unicorn, and stampedes the entire thing. Because of that, her parents send her away to help on her aunt's clinic, along with her thirteen-year-old cousin.

Pip meets Thomas, a small boy who seems to be allergic to everything, and they become great friends. Along the ride they encounter plenty of creatures, including fuzzles, very cute, but seemingly useless creatures, aside from being able to cook your food, as they have the very annoying habit of lighting on fire when they're afraid or excited. There are fuzzles everywhere, and no one knows why; as they usualy try to stay away from human populations.

Can Pip, Thomas, and Pip's Aunt and her daughter, along with any other help they can get, solve this mystery before the frightening S.M.A.C.K.E.D. Agent exterminates all the fuzzles?

A fun, child-empowering little adventure, with just enough disorder and imagination.

Of course, I had tried to talk to them before, back at the clinic, and they'd only hummed at me. I figured they just couldn't talk or wouldn't talk. I guess I figured that something so small just didn't understand things.

The same way lots of people figure someone so small, like me, just doesn't understand things.
