Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Imaginary Veterinary series:
"The best books are those in which imaginary creatures leap off the page and into our world -- just one of the reasons why this book is a ton of fun. I can't wait for more adventures!"
Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author of The Candymakers

* "From the first dragon sighting, readers will be thoroughly entertained with this hijinks-filled adventure story. Ben and Pearl are fun-seeking characters, while Santat's illustrations perfectly complement a story that mixes reality with the imaginary. Young readers will be anxious for future adventures in the Imaginary Veterinary series."―Library Media Connection, starred review

"An entertaining story that will pique readers' interest from the first dragon sighting...Santat's characteristically dynamic illustrations complement a story that will have readers eager for the next book in the Imaginary Veterinary series."―Publishers Weekly

"A solid, entertaining opener. Ben and Pearl are Everykids that readers will relate to, and the adults of Buttonville are often delightfully weird and clueless....More hijinks-filled adventure than mystery, this is sure to win an audience."―Kirkus Reviews

"Funny, touching, and sure to please, this title is full of charm. Kids will relate to Ben and his troubles, root for the amazing animals, and enjoy Santat's zany illustrations."―School Library Journal

"The story is imaginative, fast paced, and absorbing. Pages fly as readers race to find out how Pearl will get out of the tangle of mistakes she's made...A fun ride."―School Library Journal

My 10 year old daughter has friends reading many YA books, however she is not interested in teen romances or drama. This book had the 3 things she loves to read about the most: Veterinarians and pets, kids solving mysteries and fantasy. There are 2 books in this series so far and she is excited for the 3rd. She did think it was a little too short, but I enjoyed the fact that the story did not involve teen issues or heavy topics, since I feel that 10 is too young for that. Finding books for Middle Schoolers is easy, but they all seem alike. This book stood out and is highly recomended by my daughter and her mom.

A great option for your advanced 1-3 grade readers. This is a nice, new series that is a fun read aloud but also works well as a read along for more advanced younger readers. Probably little appeal past 4th grade but perfect for younger kids who want fantasy books that aren't super complicated or violent.

From an eight year old perspective
It is a really good book. There are a lot of fun characters. My favorite part is when Mr. Tabby turns into a cat again. I can't wait to read the next book.

Definitely like this new series and the characters.

Love how these two characters interact and are building a solid friendship.
They are learning about taking responsibility for their actions and decisions.

Quick, simple, entertaining. Great for young readers.

Also, it's pointed out they don't have computers or a TV to entertain themselves! Shocked and horrified mine!

There's not much I can say here compared to other reviewers given that I haven't read the book ! Basically my 10 year old son is a big fan of the "smells like (treasure, et cetera) " books by the same author so I purchased this thinking he would like it - sure enough he did! ...

I ordered this book for my nephew with a promise of sequels if he enjoyed them. He now owns every one. Both he and I are enjoying the stories.

I read to my 7-yr. old grandson while we're waiting for his sister at pre-school, usually about 20 minutes. We finished this book yesterday and had already read the first book about the susquatch. He's in first grade and so loved the first book that he lent it to his friend to read. Today, he's taking "The Lonely Lake Monster" to his friend. These stories are funny, creative, and perfect for lower-school kids.
