Cold Cereal by Adam Rex

From author Adam Rex comes the first book in the Cold Cereal Saga—a hilarious, clever, and action-packed adventure series with an educational hook.

Scottish Play Doe—aka Scott—is used to being a little different. Sometimes he hallucinates things no one else can see. But then one of these hallucinations tries to steal Scott's backpack, and he comes face-to-face with an honest-to-goodness leprechaun named Mick who's on the run from, of all things, the Goodco Cereal Company. With the help of his friends Erno and Emily, Scott and Mick uncover Goodco's sinister plans—and take the first steps in saving the world from the evil cereal company.

Like the Artemis Fowl Series and the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, the Cold Cereal Saga takes elements of familiar mythology—in this case, Arthurian legend and Irish folklore—and reimagines it in the modern world with a cast of relatable characters and myriad magical beings. The story is told from multiple points of view, and there are dozens of illustrations—including "commercial breaks"—and stories within the story.

This was a fast, fun read! Adam Rex has a quirky sense of humor that I absolutely love! I enjoyed his book Fat Vampire, but think I liked this one even better! We are first introduced to Scott and his sister Polly. They're recently moved to Goodborough, NJ for their mother's new job at the Goodco Cereal Company. Scott hates the first day in a new school, as that's when everyone learns that his real name is Scottish, as in Scottish Play (his father was a superstitious actor and had just gotten a role in MacBeth when Scott was born). While on a field trip to the Goodco Factory, Scott meets Erno and Emily Utz. Improbable twins, they are both incredibly intelligent. Emily is the smarter of the two, and is also one of the untouchable, unpopular girls. Scott and the twins become friendly, as Scott is the new kid and Emily has no friends. I think they bond over their unpopularity. They are all interesting characters, and did I mention that Scott occasionally sees things that aren't there? Things like giant talking rabbits or unicats? Never knew there was such a thing as a unicat, but I so want one now! Seems that the Goodco Cereal Company is up to no good, and their There's A Little Bit Of Magic In Every Box slogan might be all too true! There's something strange going on in Goodborough! Good thing that Scott and the twins are around! There's magic and mythical creatures and puzzles and strange experiments...all in all, pretty fascinating stuff! I got sucked into the magic and really enjoyed the story, despite being a Middle Grade title. It didn't read like a MG book, and I loved the author's humor! Really hope that there will be a sequel, as I'd love to see more of these kids!

This book was good, but totally random. I didnt really relate or get to know the characters that well. I was totally lost in some plaaces of the book, but overall is was good. I would hav liked to have gotten this book from the library before buying it.

So there are not very many reviews for this book. I heard about it in a magazine and think it looks good. The overview of cold ceral is funny. I heard that this is the second book in the series. Is this true? Never heard of this author. As i already said, looks pretty good. I think i will probably get the free sample. The reviews say this book is good.
