Cold Cereal is a wacky adventure involving a changeling, a genius, a super-genius, a clurichaun (like a leprechaun), a pooka (rabbit-man), and a large, hairy man who may or may not be bigfoot. This odd cast must work together to stop the evil cereal company, Goodco, from taking over our world and destroying magical creatures. With a quick pace and a lot of twists, readers will be swept into the story. This is the first book in a planned trilogy, so don’t expect a neat and tidy ending!
Fans of The True Meaning of Smekday, also by Adam Rex, will not be disappointed in his latest adventure. It would also likely appeal to fans of Whales on Stilts by M.T. Anderson or Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson.
