What would you do if you came home from school and found a baby griffin in your room?
Do you want to communicate with griffins, befriend people of the sea, protect dragons, and care for unicorns? If so, check out The Menagerie by Tui Sutherland. Hidden in this book's world there exists griffins, dragons, unicorns, merpeople, and other mythical and fantastic creatures that have needs. They need to be protected so that they are not exploited, misunderstood, or worse. For centuries sanctuaries have existed to protect them. When Logan’s mom disappears and his father moves him to a small town in Wisconsin, he finds himself drawn into this world.
Uniquely able to talk with baby griffins (who have run away from home, one of which has hidden in his bedroom!) he finds his way to his classmate Zoe’s house. She tells him her house is really a secret sanctuary for mythical creatures called The Menagerie. This begins their adventures. As not only must they find the runaway griffins before anyone sees them, but someone, or something, seems to be threatening the Menagerie itself and if they don’t find out who, and stop them, The Menagerie could be closed forever!
If you can't wait to join this amazing secret adventure take a sneak peek at the fan-made The Menagerie book trailer.
