Blog Tour For “Unicorn Rescue Society: The Creatures Of The Pines” By Adam Gidwitz @DuttonYR @fabanks92 @randomhouse @duttonbooks

Thanks for stopping by! My part of the blog tour is a list of Five Mythical Creatures I’d want to meet, and Five Mythical Creatures I’d want to stay away from. So here we go, and again thank you for coming. Feel free to share with me, your answers.

  1. Unicorns, Because they are majestic and beautiful. Full of rainbows and sparkles.
  2. Mermaids, Because they are the epitome of beauty and mystery.
  3. Vampires, Because the mom in me loves them and I have for years. Given the opportunity I’d turn in a heartbeat. haha!
  4. Dragons, Because who wouldn’t want to pet one? Or ride one? or have one roast marshmallows for you? (Did you know I have my very own Dragon egg?)
  5.  Werewolves, Because that is my twins choice. They love anything resembling dogs and wolves.

Now on to the list of Five Mythical Creatures we would run away from.

  1. Minotaur, Because some reason a big furry, ax wielding beast, with huge teeth terrifies us.
  2. Chimera, Because a three-headed, fire-breathing hybrid monster with the head and body of a lion, the head of a goat on its back and a tail that ends with a head of a snake, is the stuff nightmares are made of.
  3. Banshee, Because, she may not appear scary, but because of what she is, and why she comes, We never want to meet her.
  4. Ghouls, Because, Ghouls are thought to be zombie-like djinn, who haunt graveyards and prey on human flesh. They are strictly demonic and incapable of goodness. We are going to stay far away!
  5. Goblins, Because they are little creatures, with sharp teeth, pointy eyes, and gross nasty green skin. Mean little things too!

UNICORN RESCUE SOCIETY: THE CREATURE OF THE PINES Description

A fully illustrated, globe-trotting new middle grade fantasy-adventure series about mythical creatures and their cultures of origin, from the Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitor’s Tale.
Elliot Eisner isn’t exactly excited about starting at a brand-new school in a brand-new town; he’d much rather stay at home and read a book. But things take an unexpected turn when he finds out his weird new teacher, Professor Fauna, has planned a field trip for Elliot’s very first day. Along with a new friend–brave, outspoken Uchenna Devereaux–Elliot gets caught up in a secret group of adventurers, The Unicorn Rescue Society, whose goal is to protect and defend the world’s mythical creatures. Together with Professor Fauna, Elliot and Uchenna must help rescue a Jersey Devil from a duo of conniving, greedy billionaires, the Schmoke Brothers.

Unicorn Rescue Society is an exciting and hilarious new series about friendship, adventure, and mythical creatures from around the world by Newbery Honor-winning author Adam Gidwitz teamed up with Mixtape Club founders Jesse Casey and Chris Smith, and Hatem Aly, illustrator of The Inquisitor’s Tale.
