The Extincts

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)


George is looking for a job in order to raise money for a new bike, so when he sees a help wanted ad for Wormestall Farm, he goes for it. Before long, he's embroiled in a madcap adventure involving creatures both (supposedly) extinct and (previously thought to be) mythological, a new friend (a girl!), and a maniacal taxidermist who wants the animals of Wormestall Farm in her own private collection . . . stuffed, of course.


THE WEIRD STUFF all began with a handful of change.

I picked it up—a scattering of coins on a wet pavement—and counted it.

George Drake, it’s your lucky day! Three strikes at Bumper Bowl with Josh...
