Upon completing this third installment in the series, it is becoming apparent that each book has a formulaic plot structure to it. Baron Marackai is plotting some way to bring down the RSPCB that involves attacking and harming some sort of magical beast. In this case he is after trolls to use as prey in a beast hunting preserve. One of the beasts in injured and brought to the RSPCB where Dr. Fielding, Ulf and Orson care for it. Marackai manages to trick, and capture, Dr. Fielding and Orson and U ...more

"This book is recommended to kids who like adventures and monsters (cryptids). It took me three days to finish and I cannot wait to read the others in the series.

The author tells a great story that you can really picture in your head." Review by a 9 year old, F.B.

The three meet a new friend and set out to save the beasts.

Comments: This is definitely my favourite book in the series so far. So as not to k
Ulf, a young boy, is part of the RSPCB - the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts. What beasts, you ask? Why, your standard run-of-the-mill trolls, goblins, gryphons, and fish-headed giraffes.

Ulf also happens to be a werewolf. He has lived most of his life at the RSPCB because he technically qualifies as a beast. His friends include the human vet, a fairy, and a giant. They work together to keep bad guys from hunting and hurting various mythical monsters. In this book, the bad

If you want to read a book about FANTASY, ACTION and DRAMA then you really should consider reading this book.
Okay, the main character is named Ulf and he is a (as you can hear in the name) a werewolf. Ulf lives in a park for fantasy animals like werewolves, unicorns, fairies, giants and dragons. One day a bat comes with a note which says HELP. The next day he goes to a big mountain and there aren’t passing much time before he is on the case of a illegal troll hunt. The best thing about this bo

More of the same! :)
Wasn't nearly as good as the first two Beastly Business books, and I'm not sure why. Still, Ulf was cute as always and the pictures were adorable. Always loved the artwork.
