An action-packed and hilarious animal fantasy adventure from New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer, this new series stunner (Kirkus starred review) will thrill fans of Warriors and Spirit Animals. Includes a stunning full-color poster!

Caldera has forever been divided into the animals who walk by night and those who walk by day. Nightwalker panthers, like young Mez and her sister, have always feared daywalkers as creatures of myth and legend.

Then Mez discovers that she can enter the daylight world, and she rushes to discover what it means to cross the Veil-and the extent of her newly uncovered magical powers-before a reawakened evil threatens everything she's ever known.

Now, with an unlikely group of animal friends-including a courageous bat, a scholarly tree frog, and an anxious monkey-Mez must unravel an ancient mystery and face her greatest fears, if they are to have any hope of saving their endangered rainforest home.

Reviews for Mezs Magic (#1 Lost Rainforest)

The Lost Rainforest feels unlike anything I've read. Eliot Schrefer has mined the richness and depths of his setting to find a deeper magic, immersing us in a world that is at once complex, dangerous, beautiful, and ultimately demanding of our protection. A thrilling start to an exceptional new series. -- Soman Chainani, <em>New York Times </em>bestselling author of the School for Good and Evil series While the story is pure fast-paced fantasy, the underlying issues are real. Ignorance among the species, racism, and intolerance of differences are rampant. An author's note highlights the beauty and importance of the rainforest. Magic with depth in this new series stunner. -- Kirkus Reviews <strong>(starred review)</strong> Just right for middle grade readers who want an engrossing fantasy adventure. -- School Library Journal With a memorable, quick-bantering cast, this kickoff to the Lost Rainforest series, a playful departure from Schrefer's ape novels, brings fresh perspective to the magical animal subgenre. And, despite the fantasy setup, readers will come away learning quite a bit about this ecosystem and its inhabitants. -- Publishers Weekly Mez's Magic is packed with as many jokes as fast-paced fight scenes. And Schrefer has created a stock of memorable characters-including Gogi, a monkey with self-esteem issues; Rumi, a delightfully urbane tree frog; and a manic, pixie-dream bat named Lima. -- New York Times Book Review
