Waiting on Wednesday (124)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures by Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pearce (04/28/15):

Description on Goodreasds:
From bestselling authors Maggie Stiefvater and Jackson Pearce comes an exciting new series full of magical creatures, whimsical adventures, and quirky illustrations.

Pip is a girl who can talk to magical creatures. Her aunt is a vet for magical creatures. And her new friend Tomas is allergic to most magical creatures. When things go amok—and they often go amok—Pip consults Jeffrey Higgleston’s Guide to Magical Creatures, a reference work that Pip finds herself constantly amending. Because dealing with magical creatures like unicorns, griffins, and fuzzles doesn’t just require book knowledge—it requires hands-on experience and thinking on your feet. For example, when fuzzles (which have an awful habit of bursting into flame when they’re agitated) invade your town, it’s not enough to know what the fuzzles are—Pip and Tomas also must trace the fuzzles’ agitation to its source, and in doing so, save the whole town.
Why I’m Waiting:
Do I need a reason to wait for anything by Maggie Stiefvater at this point? I’ve never read anything by Jackson Pearce, but I have read lots of good reviews for her books. Also, this book sounds adorable and kind of gives me warm/happy memories of Hagrid.
What are you waiting on this week?
