Waiting on Wednesday – Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures

Publisher: Scholastic

Author:  Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pearce

Release date: May 2015

Synopsis from GoodreadsFrom bestselling authors Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pearce comes an exciting new series full of magical creatures, whimsical adventures, and quirky illustrations.

Pip is a girl who can talk to magical creatures. Her aunt is a vet for magical creatures. And her new friend Tomas is allergic to most magical creatures. When things go amok—and they often go amok—Pip consults Jeffrey Higgleston’s Guide to Magical Creatures, a reference work that Pip finds herself constantly amending. Because dealing with magical creatures like unicorns, griffins, and fuzzles doesn’t just require book knowledge—it requires hands-on experience and thinking on your feet. For example, when fuzzles (which have an awful habit of bursting into flame when they’re agitated) invade your town, it’s not enough to know what the fuzzles are—Pip and Tomas also must trace the fuzzles’ agitation to its source, and in doing so, save the whole town.

Why I’m excited: As soon as I saw that Maggie Stiefvater had illustrated a book, I knew I wanted it. But then I read the description and I definitely wish I had this book RIGHT NOW. You’ve got a girl named Pip – great name – and magical creatures and a last name like Higgleston and adventure and things that burst into flame and this sounds SO. GOOD. And again, Maggie Stiefvater illustrated it. She’s such an amazing artist, whether she’s creating with words or colored pencil. I want this now. I hate that I have to wait half a year until I can read it. 😦
