Those crazy cryptids are back for more fun. This time they start off with a quick game of image scrimmage between Blizz and Cousin Brian, in which we learn that even the toughest monsters can be defeated by a cute kitty. But as soon as Brian leaves, Blizz gets a call for help from Vanessa (also known as the Loch Ness Monster). So Blizz, Alex, Gunthar, and the dogs pile on their bicycles and travel to Scotland to see if they can fix Vanessa's problem. With the help of a leprechaun named Tobin Clover, our band of helpful monsters travels through time to find a solution for Nessie's dilemma. Some of them make new friends (like a lovely family of protoceratops), while others almost get eaten by a T-Rex. Eventually they do find their way back home and get some valuable information from Tobin. Of course, as soon as they start to relax, another call for help comes in. But that's just a typical day in the life of the world's foremost cryptozoologist.
Fans who enjoyed the first Yeti Files will be glad to see some favorite characters return. For those readers who haven't tried the series yet, this adventure is just as much silly fun as the first - so jump right in! It's great for those who love books with lots of illustrations like Big Nate or Diary of a Wimp Kid.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through edelweiss.
