Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures

Series: Pip Bartlett (Book #1)
by Jackson Pearce, Maggie Stiefvater

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.
