"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
* "Hijinks-filled...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...A fun ride."School Library Journal
