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 hot mess of trouble.

Jackson Pearce is a bestselling author of books for young adult and middle grade readers. Her favorite magical creature in the Pip series is the Flowerbeast. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
Gr 3–5—In this promising series opener, nine-year-old Pip has the unique ability to communicate with magical creatures—but no one believes her. After the "Unicorn Incident" ruins Career Day at her Atlanta elementary school, Pip is sent to small-town Cloverton to stay with her aunt. Aunt Emma is a veterinarian to magical creatures, and even though she doesn't believe in Pip's ability either, she is willing to let Pip help out around the clinic—especially when an invasion of fireball Fuzzles threatens the town. With the help of her cousin Callie (a fan of musicals) and her new friend Tomas (who is allergic to everything), Pip must use her knowledge and imagination to save the town from fire and the Fuzzles from extermination. VERDICT Fast-paced and sprinkled with diagrams of magical creatures and whimsical details (like Tomas's tendency to exhibit allergic reactions such as hiccuping colorful bubbles or floating), this younger middle-grade offering from Pearce and Stiefvater will please fantasy and animal story fans alike.—Laurie Slagenwhite Walters, Brighton District Library, Brighton, MI
