    After reading her first two books, I awaited this one with eager anticipation and, believe me, it did not disappoint! I read it, off and on, in about 24 hours because I found it very hard to put down. As with any good book, the story drew me in quickly and I felt like I lived the lives of its characters. I now know so much about them, I want to go back and read School for Essential Ingredients again. I want to revisit those tales with this additional insight I have into each of the players. And, as with all of Bauermeister's books, the writing is just superb.

    A must read!

    This author is brilliant in her portrayal of characters and events. In a very short time you are knee deep in feelings and emotions of characters that could be you, or someone you know. Outstanding author.

    Mixel Misadventures Episode Zero: Meet the Legeneans

    ((Hi guys! I'm making this series in secret. Hopefully, no one will see this until I reveal it! Admittedly, I based the Legeneans on Ho-oh, Lugia, and Shadow Lugia. I wanted to put in the Darkilars (another fan-made one; affiliated with darkness), but after discovering Globert on the w-i-k-i and saw in the trivia he might be from a monster-themed tribe (the Darkilars kinda look like monsters), I decided to put in my Pokemon-themed tribe. :/ Anyway, I hope you like! Oh, and if you put in ))<p>(At first the screen is black)<p>Female Mixel Voice 1: Is it recording?<p>Female Mixel Voice 2: Yup!<p>Male Mixel Voice: Why is the cap for the camera lenses still on, then?<p>Female Mixel Voice 2: Oh, right.<p>(The cap is removed, revealing two Mixels standing in thier homeland, Ancient Ruins. The one who removed the cap ran to the position between the two. The first one was light red and gold. She was one of the few Mixels with a beak, which is pale yellow. She had three gold feathers on the top of her head, and on her back was a pair of beautiful light red, green, and white wings. The second one, the Mixel who had removed the lenses cap, was mostly snow white. She has two blue horns surrounding the eyes, and a tail with two small blue horns at the tip. She also has white wings, but the feathers are unkempt. The third Mixel looked like the previous one, but he is dark violet instead of white and silver instead of blue. The horns are more crooked, and he has de<_>monic wings and completely red eyes.)<p>Light Red and Gold Mixel: Hi. I'm Sacrire, the leader of the Legeneans.<p>White and Blue Mixel: I'm Aerast, second-in-command!<p>Dark Purple and Silver Mixel: And I am Dargea, the last member of the Legeneans.<p>Sacrire: We-<p>???: NIX NIX NIX NIX NIX NIX!<p>(Aerast picks up the camera, and the Legeneans run to where the noise came from. As it turns out, Nixels were attacking the Ancient Ruins!)<p>Sacrire: We need to Max! (Holds out a gold cubit) Ready, Dargea?<p>Dargea: (Nods)<p>Sacrire: Aerast?...Aerast?<p>Aerast: (Makes faces in front of the camera)<p>Sacrire: AERAST!<p>Aerast: Oh!<p>(The Legeneans touch the cubit.)<p>MAX!<p>(In thier place was a Max that was completely gold-colored. It had three pairs of wings that resemble those of Sacrire's, Aerast's, and Dargea's. One would compare the Max to a six-winged gryffin. The Legeneans Max starts attacking the Nixels until they fled.)<p>Legeneans Max: AND STAY OUT!<p>(The Legeneans revert back to normal, and Aerast goes look at the camera.)<p>Aerast: We're almost out of time.<p>Sacrire and Dargea: Then turn it off!<p>***<p>THE LEGENEANS<p>Sacrire- The fashionista leader who takes pride in her wings.<p>Aerast- A goofy, easily distracted Mixel with (believe it or not) au<_>tism.<p>Dargea- The goth guy who still doesn't know how to fly.<p>((If you want, you can put in your tribe. I read these fan episodes on the Mixels W-i-k-i Creative Corner, and I got the idea for "Mixel Misadventures". Since I don't have a w-i-k-i ac<_>count, I'll just put it here!))
