New Customer Review - Cold Cereal

Cold Cereal
by Adam Rex [j Rex]

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 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
