CHAPTER BOOK: The Menagerie

The Menagerie

Logan finds a griffin cub under his bed which leads him to The Menagerie - a zoo for magical creatures. If only Logan can use his griffin-whisperer skills to help his new friends Zoe and Blue track down the other missing cubs, maybe they can keep The Menagerie safe and in operation.

I really enjoyed this book! The mythical creatures were very interesting - each type with its own "voice" and attitude. The five griffin cubs alone were a hoot to read. There's a fun mystery element to the story as Logan has skills and connections to the Menagerie other people seem to know about but he doesn't. The gradual reveal of those connections was nicely done. My students already love Sutherland's dragon series, and I can't wait to recommend this series to them as well!

4 out of 5 stars
AR reading level of 4.6

Recommended for: Fans of animal stories, mythology stories, fantasy stories, and other books written by Tui Sutherland (the Pet Trouble series, the Wings of Fire series)
