Reviews

"Tweens will instantly connect with innovative, hardworking Thisby and cheer her on. The story is an intriguing page-turner." -- School Library Journal

"A proper adventure story." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Gorman makes a strong children's book debut...delivering a fast-paced, high-stakes adventure. Clever Thisby and forceful Iphigenia make a delightfully odd pairing as they form an unlikely friendship amid the chaos and danger, and Bosma's ghoulish b&w illustrations further help bring the characters and creatures to life." -- Publishers Weekly

"The strength of this first novel of a planned series is certainly its menagerie of familiar and unfamiliar monsters, which Thisby helms as a young and extraordinary zookeeper."
-- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
