Unicorns are real. (At least we think they are.)

Are you ready to protect the creatures of myth and legend? Then you belong in The Unicorn Rescue Society. Hurry! The creatures need you!

Elliot Eisner isn’t exactly thrilled with the first day at his new school. His class is going on a field trip to a creepy forest called the Pine Barrens. The trip is being led by Professor Fauna, the weirdest teacher Elliot has ever met. And the only kid who will talk to Elliot, Uchenna Devereaux, isn’t afraid of danger. She likes danger.

Elliot and Uchenna are about to become part of a secret group of adventurers, The Unicorn Rescue Society, whose goal is to protect and defend the world’s mythical creatures. Together with Professor Fauna, Elliot and Uchenna must help rescue a Jersey Devil from a duo of conniving, greedy billionaires, the Schmoke Brothers.

Join Elliot and Uchenna on their very first quest as members of the Unicorn Rescue Society in this brand-new fantasy-adventure series from Adam Gidwitz, the beloved bestselling and Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitors Tale and A Tale Dark & Grimm. It’s a perfect fit for newly independent readers looking for a story full of adventure, fun, and friendship.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator January LaVoy shows off her many voices while portraying Elliot, the fact-loving new kid at school, and Uchenna, a free spirit with a sense of adventure…LaVoy transitions between characters so seamlessly that it sounds like there’s more than one narrator. The emotions, especially the humor, throughout this well-crafted production create an enjoyable story. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    AudioFile

  • “Admission into the highly exclusive Unicorn Rescue Society requires pledging allegiance to the existence and protection of all things mythical: unicorn, chupacabra, mermaid—the creatures young children want as pets yet forever feel denied. It’s an easy, fun hook for readers…The rapport between nebbishy Elliot and impulsive Uchenna is already terrific.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A quick-witted fantasy focused on supposedly imaginary creatures and finding like-minded friends, told from Elliot’s fresh, young perspective. Though Elliot and Uchenna’s burgeoning friendship and cooperation are emphasized, a more subtle lesson about fallibility and recovering from mistakes demonstrates slightly more complex, and necessary, life skills.”
