Back cover copy

Something is amiss at the Menagerie. The goose who laid the golden eggs has been murdered--and all the evidence points to a dragon named Scratch.

Zoe Kahn is no stranger to the difficulties of caring for magical creatures, but even feeding deadly basilisks didn't prepare her for this crisis. Zoe and her classmate Logan are sure that the dragon is being framed, but unless they can prove he is innocent, Scratch will be executed. Worse yet, the Menagerie will be forced to shut down--which Logan and Zoe are starting to fear is exactly what someone wants. . . .

Review quote

"Hilarious." -- Kirkus Reviews "Fantasy lovers will delight in this funny and action-packed murder mystery full of the mystical creatures from all of their other favorite fantasies." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) This second volume in the silly, lighthearted series is just as full of madcap adventures, animated magical creatures, and crackerjack detective work from the cast of well-rounded, multicultural kids as the first. Fans will be thrilled at the promise of deeper mysteries in subsequent volumes. -- ALA Booklist PRAISE FOR THE MENAGERIE: "This page-turning fantasy will fly off library shelves." -- School Library Journal "Full to bursting with animated fantasy creatures, this delightful story begs to be read aloud. Animal lovers will eagerly anticipate more Logan and Zoe adventures." -- ALA Booklist

About Tui T. Sutherland

Tui T. Sutherland & Kari Sutherland are sisters and best friends, and if you can't tell by looking at them which one is older, Tui certainly isn't going to tell you. They grew up in South America, traveling a lot and moving several times (and they're still only about 80 percent certain that their parents weren't secret agents). Kari now lives in California, while Tui lives in Boston, but they use every excuse they can to see each other (like, say, writing a book together).
