Plot Summary: Elliot is upset he has to start at a new school three weeks into the school year when everyone has already made friends. But he doesn't have a choice and boards the bus on the first fateful day. He sits next to Uchenna and makes a new friend quickly. They are in the same class and Elliot learns his first day will be on a field trip to Pine Barrens, a forest in which Prof Fauna is very dangerous, and they could die if they don't stay on the path and stay together. Of course, Uchenna steps off the path to search for a sound. Elliot can't decide what to do, but decides to follow her. There they find a small blue animal with wings, like a dragon, tangled badly by a balloon ribbon. While their class gets father away, Uchenna and Elliot debate on what to do. Should they save the animal? What is this animal? Will they find their class again?

Setting: New Jersey

Characters:
Elliot Eisner - funny, loves animals
Uchenna Devereaux - adventurous, outgoing
Professor Fauna - AKA Doctor Fauna, AKA Mito Fauna, scary, rumored to have a torture chamber beneath the school in his office, teaches social studies
Miss Vole - used to be in the military, has a very high-pitched voice especially when she's angry or upset, doesn't seem to have much control over Professor Fauna
Dr. Thomas - lives in a small, falling apart, dirty cottage in the middle of the woods, invites the class in, gives Prof Fauna an awkward hug

Recurring Themes: none

Controversial Issues: none

Personal Thoughts: Not realistic at all with the creepy professor who somehow can go on another teacher's field trip, the field trip with no obvious objective, the teacher who used to be in the military yet seems to have very little control over Prof Fauna or the field trip with her students, the inch of dust on the floor of Dr. Thomas's cabin. Yet I loved it. It was engaging from the very start. It had the right amount of character development and action. I would be curious to find out what happens in book 2!

Genre: fantasy

Pacing: fast, large font, lots of action
Characters: very few characters, good character development
