Scottish Play Doe, aka Scott, is used to being a little different. Sometimes he hallucinates things no one else can see. Mermaids. Unicorns. A talking rabbit-man in tweed pants.

But then one of these hallucinations tries to steal Scott’s backpack, and he comes face-to-face with an honest-to-goodness leprechaun named Mick who’s on the run from, of all things, the Goodco Cereal Company.

With the help of their friends Erno and Emily, Scott and Mick uncover Goodco’s sinister plans, and take the first steps in saving the world from the evil cereal company.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Totally original and wholly brilliant—this is the one book this year I wish I had written. Adam Rex must be stopped.” 

    Eoin Colfer, bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series

  • “Warning—this book contains the following ingredients in dangerously high quantities: wild fantasy, dynamic action, great satire, and silly jokes. I loved it. Second helpings, please!” 

    Jonathan Stroud, bestselling author of the Bartimaeus Trilogy

  • “The divinely demented Adam Rex strikes again! Cold Cereal is exciting, strange, and deliciously different. His deft mixing of myth with modernity is flat-out fabulous.”

    Bruce Coville, author of My Teacher Is An Alien

  • “Mythology and magic collide with breakfast cereal in this dry-humored adventure…Rex takes his magically delicious premise seriously, though, finding the thin line between absurdity and comedy, while giving this story more gravitas and depth than might be expected.”  

    Publishers Weekly

  • One of the Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books for Children in 2012
  • Selected for the Spring 2012 Indie Next List for Children

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Dawn | 2/19/2014

    " I was excited to find Adam Rex's newest book, Cold Cereal, at the library. I liked it, but not as much as Smekday. Rex is still weirdly brilliant and serves up lots of adventure in this story about kids trying to fight against an cereal company bent on world domination. But overall it just wasn't as humorous to me as Smekday. Bizarre, yes, but not really funny, though of course there were some funny moments. Actually, my favorite part was the inside front cover which introduces the book in a format which mimics the nutrition information from the side of a cereal box. That made me laugh! Smekday was a stand-alone book, but Cold Cereal clearly leaves room for intended sequels. "

    " I probably didn't love this quite as much as I loved Smekday, but boy was it ever fun! And it looks like there'll be a sequel? Here's hoping we'll see more of the unicat next time :) "

    " Why do they have creatures like leprechauns and giant rabbits selling breakfast cereal to kids? Scott (Scottish Play Doe) and his new friends Erno and Emily are about to find out. Scott's been having hallucinations most of his life, but learned to act as if he doesn't. Erno's a genius, who has also managed to get along. Emily is a supergenius, who hasn't. The GoodCo Cereal Company has a lot to do with all of this. Plot twists, mysteries and strange juxtapositions of pop culture icons abound, but the story doesn't end here...aargh! I checked his website and it's part of a trilogy. I can't decide if I'm relieved or irritated because I want to read more. Now. Rex's artwork is great fun, even the ingredients list on the inside of the dust jacket will make you laugh. Gr. 4-8. "

    " Totally crazy and awesome. Can't wait for book two!!! "
