When 10-year-old Ben Silverstein arrives in smalltown Buttonville to stay with his grandfather, he is prepared for the most boring summer ever. Buttonville has its share of excitement, however, starting when Ben and a local girl named Pearl see what looks like a dragon flying to the newly opened “worm hospital” outside town. When Ben discovers an injured dragon hatchling, he and Pearl head to the hospital, which is actually a refuge for imaginary creatures (including that other kind of worms—dragons) run by the mysterious Dr. Woo. While there, Ben accidently releases a sasquatch, and he and Pearl are sent to retrieve it. Selfors (Smells Like a Dog) has created an entertaining story that will pique readers’ interest from the first dragon sighting. Ben is a relatable main character, and daring, outspoken Pearl is the perfect partner in crime. Santat’s characteristically dynamic illustrations (not all seen by PW) complement a story that will have readers eager for the next book in the Imaginary Veterinary series. Ages 7–12.
