Best Book I've Ever Read!! It is a must read!
WOW! I have never read a book so exciting. A unicorn, a kelpie, a dragon, and so on. CRAZY!
Order of the Unicorn is book four in an awesome fantasy series, called the Imaginary Veterinary. Two kids named Pearl and Ben are apprentices at Dr. Woo’s Worm Hospital (it’s actually a place that treats magical creatures from another world). Pearl and Ben travel to the Imaginary World to try to find a missing unicorn. They enter the Tangled Forest and start their quest. It is a dangerous and exciting mission. I love the first two lines of the book because they are funny and interesting and make me want to read more. “The first thing many people do after getting out of bed is put on a pair of slippers. The first thing Pearl Petal did on that Friday morning was slip her feet into a pair of leprechaun shoes.” Part of the book is set in our world, and part is in another world. It’s more interesting than if it were set just in one world. Pearl and Ben are doing normal things in Buttonville where they live but trying to keep the Imaginary World a secret. Mrs. Mulberry, the mother of Pearl’s arch enemy in Buttonville, is nosy and trying to figure out what’s going on at Dr. Woo’s Worm Hospital. This makes it hard for Pearl and Ben to keep the secret. I like the dialogue and descriptions. The illustrations are wonderful and they go with the story. I think kids would love this book because it is exciting and fun. My favorite part is when they meet the unicorn king and I love the ending. I wish I could go to the Imaginary World. That would be so cool! Review by Young Mensan Connor C., age 8, Boston Mensa
