Scottish Play Doe (a.k.a. Scott) can
"see things" like a giant Rabbit-Man with a lisp, a two-foot leprechaun named
Mick, and mermaids, unicorns, etc. But when he realizes they're REAL, and that
they've just escaped from, off all places, the Goodco Cereal Company, a cereal
factory with "a little bit of magic in every box," things start to take a turn
for the weird...er...weird-er. And when, worse, he and his twin
brother-and-sister-friends (the girl, by the way, barfs rainbows and burps
butterflies) discover a weird cult is behind the draining of magic from magical
creatures and the implanting the magic in cereal so they can rule the world and
turn all cereal-eating-children into mindless zombie-slaves, what do they do?
Only the obvious--camp out for a few days in Bigfoot's tree house (who happens
to be a house-cleaner and nanny) and then they attack! Will the reign of the
GoodCo Cereal Company ever end? Or will "Burlap Crisp" and "Peanut Butter
Clobbers" take over the world? With a little help from Bigfoot, a
Queen-Punching-Actor, and various magical creatures (including a fire-breathing
Finch and a flabby Merlin from the future) this amazing book will leave you
begging for seconds! -- review submitted by Elanor J. - a customer of the Bennett Martin Public Library
