Finders Creepers (Half Past Peculiar, Book 1)

We rated this book:


Twin siblings Esmerelda and Atticus Fetch find lost pets. They’re the best (and only) pet finders in Thorns Hollow, a strange little town with almost as many pets as people. There has never been a pet they couldn’t find, except their own beloved dog Dunnsworth. Nothing seems out of the ordinary when a search for a missing pet takes them to an old house across town. But the next thing they know, the twins are hurled into a dangerous world full of dragons, unicorns, and manticores. How will they ever get back and prevent these dangerous creatures from coming back with them?

This book is amazing because it’s very unique. It’s a mix of traditional text, comics, letters, newspaper clippings, maps, and illustrations. The black and white illustrations and comics help bring the story alive. It’s also cool because even though the twins are total opposites, I can relate to both of them; Esmerelda is adventurous and bold, while Atticus is cautious and bookish. This book is full of suspense, excitement, and magical creatures. So if you like all those things (and really, who doesn’t?) then this book is for you.
