Product Details

Praise

This supernatural tale of self-discovery in a setting of rare natural history specimens delivers a credible hero, folk-tale threads, memorable characters, and family bonds. Cooper’s worldbuilding seems endlessly inventive, the characters that inhabit the museum fully realized, up to and including the storytelling bees…Unusual, fascinating, fast-paced.
—Kirkus Reviews

Picture-book creator Cooper weaves magic and mystery through her debut novel, wonderfully bringing the past to life and enhancing the present, as Ben endeavors to save the Gee Museum from a devious real-estate developer. Along the way, he learns of his family’s history, draws upon knowledge gleaned from folktales, and befriends the museum’s animals. Cooper incorporates many chapter illustrations, which add further charm to this uncommonly enchanting novel.
—Booklist

Readers who are just beyond Mary Pope Osborne’s “The Magic Treehouse” but not quite ready for J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” will find this a great fit. A fantastical, captivating illustrated novel that will appeal to many young fantasy readers.
—School Library Journal

This book is a must read for those who love a combination of fantasy, museums, animals, and adventure.
