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.Supports the Common Core State Standards
