Storyline
Review
  • Grades 3-7 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. -- Hunter, Sarah (Reviewed 05-15-2014) (Booklist, vol 110, number 18, p66)
  • 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. --Staff (Reviewed May 1, 2014) (School Library Journal, vol 60, issue 5, p145)
  • New threats to the existence of a hidden refuge for magical and mythical animals occupy a trio of young sleuths in this droll middle volume. The tale picks up just after the opener's cliffhanger ending (The Menagerie, 2013) and likewise ends midcourse with an ominous, sequel-keying discovery. In between Zoe, Logan and their part-merman buddy, Blue, find themselves racing to discover the truth about the apparent murder of Pelly, the thoroughly obnoxious goose whose golden eggs are nonetheless the Menagerie's sole source of income, and to keep the entire Wyoming facility from being shut down by regulatory agents. Meanwhile the large cast of griffins, hell hounds and other creatures—many with oversized egos, bad dispositions or both—need often hazardous care and feeding: "If you look a basilisk in the eye, it kills you instantly. If you hear a basilisk hiss, it kills you instantly. If you smell a wide-awake basilisk—." And lest the pace lag for even a moment, the authors also stage a hilarious jury screening for a dragon's trial-by-peers, trot in a rambunctious family of unregistered shape-changers, engineer encounters between Blue and a preening classmate with a crush, and shoehorn in several other subplots, both new and ongoing. Busy, busy…but funny, funny too, not to mention positively stuffed with exotic fauna. (map) (Fantasy. 10-12)(Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2013)
