This book has everything an active boy would like: fighting, food, chases, escapes, beasts, and document revisions. Document revisions? Yeah, you read that right. Deal with it.

I found this one hard to put down. Full of great characters, mystery and adventure. Fans of books like The Chronicles of Narnia or the Septimus Heap series will enjoy the story and world that Bishop has created.

This is one fine story.

It's imaginative, moral, suspenseful, full of great characters and a moving plot. Highly recommended.

Benjamin Weatherby's Practical Bestiary was a great read for my husband and I. We couldn't put it down. We were immediately taken in from the start as the characters became known to us. As the story progressed, there were surprises and some rather scary and gross things, but in a good way. We highly recommend this book.

Josh Bishop is a great author, and one we wait with anticipation for another book of his to come out.
