Description

Ten-year-olds Ben Silverstein and Pearl Petal have had quite a busy summer as apprentices of Dr. Woo, veterinarian for imaginary creatures. Together, they've encountered all sorts of magical beasts--a sasquatch, a lake monster, a dragon, a unicorn, a griffin, and even a leprechaun!

When a swarm of sugar fairies escapes into Buttonville, Pearl and Ben are tasked with catching the mischievous creatures. But with know-it-all Victoria getting in the way, the quest will prove difficult. Can Ben and Pearl protect the townspeople, keep the fairies safe, and outsmart the dangerous poacher, Maximus Steele?

In this thrilling finale to the Imaginary Veterinary series, Suzanne Selfors delivers an incredible adventure, filled with twists, turns, and tons of fun that is anything but imaginary!

This book includes bonus writing, art, and science activities that will help readers discover more about the mythological creatures featured in The Fairy Swarm. These activities are designed for the home and the classroom. Enjoy doing them on your own or with friends!
