#Review of The Mysterious Abductions (The Nocturnals) by Tracey Hecht with #Giveaway @fabled_films

 
 
A flabbergastifying adventure under the stars!

"The characters are delightful and the nighttime landscape is captivating. It was just as I expected—because the best stories always take place in the dark!—R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps

The Nocturnals features three unlikely friends: Dawn, a serious fox, Tobin, a sweet pangolin and Bismark, the loud mouthed, pint sized sugar glider. The stories all play out in their nighttime world with teamwork, friendship and humor in every adventure.

In The Mysterious Abductions, the animals form a brigade of the night after a random encounter with a blood-thirsty snake, and just in time because something is threatening their night realm. Animals are disappearing without a trace. Together with the help of a wombat, a band of coyotes and many others, Dawn, Tobin and Bismark journey to the depths of the earth in a wacky, high stakes game that will determine all of their survival.

This book reminds me of Zootopia!  Animals are missing!  But, in the movie where only a little bunny and then a fox were helping.  This book has a range of creatures banding together to find out what is going on.  I really liked this book.  It made me laugh.  What really made this book neat is that it takes place during the night because all of the creatures that are helping are Nocturnal.  I really loved this story and its characters!  

I recommend this book to kids in high elementary school to lower middle grade.
