Summary

A New York Public Library Best Books for Kids 2017 Selection
A Mighty Girl Book of the Year
Illinois Monarch Award Nominee 2018-2019

Washington OTTER Award Nominee 2018-2019

With magical animals, science, mystery, and adventure -- the brand new series Zoey and Sassafras has something for everyone! Easy-to-read language and illustrations on nearly every page make this series perfect for a wide range of ages.

In the first book of this series, Zoey discovers a glowing photo and learns an amazing secret. Injured magical animals come to their backyard barn for help! When a sick baby dragon appears, it's up to Zoey and Sassafras to figure out what's wrong. Will they be able to help little Marshmallow before it's too late?

Each story in the Zoey and Sassafras series features a new magical animal with a problem that must be solved using science. There isn't a set formula for each book; Zoey sometimes needs to run experiments, while other times she needs to investigate a mystery, and yet other times she needs to do research. Zoey models how to keep a science journal through her handwritten entries in each story. Each story is complete with a glossary of the kid-friendly definitions for scientific terms used. The series highlights child-led inquiry science and the topics covered align with both Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Magical creatures are invisible to most humans, but not to Zoey, a bright African American girl, or her scientist mom. In the first in a series of three simultaneously published titles, Zoey discovers her ability to see magical creatures and learns they've been coming to her family's barn for years whenever they need help. When Zoey's mom leaves for a conference, she entrusts this special responsibility to Zoey. When a sickly baby dragon appears, Zoey and her cat, Sassafras, use the scientific method (question, hypothesis, steps, findings), along with research on reptiles (a close relative to dragons), to nurse the dragon back to health. This plot-driven early chapter book boasts 16 quick chapters and a glossary of scientific words. The first-person narration is presented in a large font with lots of white space and complemented by pleasant black-and-white spot illustrations. Although there's little conflict in the story and Zoey is perhaps a little too well behaved, conscientious, and responsible, the imaginative premise and the incorporation of STEM elements make this an attractive and engaging choice.--Seto Forrester, Amy Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this whimsical first book in the Zoey and Sassafras series, Zoey-a resourceful budding scientist with brown skin, springy curls, and a cat sidekick-learns that her mother has been secretly rehabilitating magical animals in their backyard. Naturally, Zoey wants to help, but when a sick baby dragon appears while her mother is away, she must use the tools available to her to help the dragon survive. Citro plays Zoey's anxieties against her can-do attitude, demonstrating how research, past experience, and the scientific method can come in handy (investigating what dragons like to eat, Zoey learns that they enjoy marshmallows but fish is a better choice). Dense blocks of text don't make for a terribly inviting reading experience, but Lindsay's cheery spot illustrations help, and Citro gracefully balances her story's scientific and fantasy elements.
