Pip Bartlett loves magical animals, and, what's more, she can speak to them! But no one believes her. What's a girl to do? Clearly, start a unicorn stampede, help a limping hobgrackle, and solve a mystery. Filled with hilarity and great illustrations!— From Joy

Because of a Unicorn Incident at her school (it was an accident!), Pip is spending the summer with her Aunt Emma at the Cloverton Clinic for Magical Creatures.

Because if the mystery of the Fuzzles isn't solved soon, both magical and unmagical creatures are going to be in a hot mess of trouble.
