Description

From author Adam Rex comes the first book in the Cold Cereal Saga—a hilarious, clever, and action-packed adventure series with an educational hook.

Scottish Play Doe—aka Scott—is used to being a little different. Sometimes he hallucinates things no one else can see. But then one of these hallucinations tries to steal Scott's backpack, and he comes face-to-face with an honest-to-goodness leprechaun named Mick who's on the run from, of all things, the Goodco Cereal Company. With the help of his friends Erno and Emily, Scott and Mick uncover Goodco's sinister plans—and take the first steps in saving the world from the evil cereal company.

Like the Artemis Fowl Series and the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series, the Cold Cereal Saga takes elements of familiar mythology—in this case, Arthurian legend and Irish folklore—and reimagines it in the modern world with a cast of relatable characters and myriad magical beings. The story is told from multiple points of view, and there are dozens of illustrations—including "commercial breaks"—and stories within the story.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 12, 2011 – Mythology and magic collide with breakfast cereal in this dry-humored adventure from Rex (Fat Vampire), first in a planned trilogy. When sixth-grader Scottish Play Doe who understandably prefers to be called Scott moves to the small town of Goodborough, N.J., a community dominated by the Goodco Cereal Company, he starts seeing imaginary creatures. One of them, a world-weary clurichaun (akin to a leprechaun) named Mick, claims sanctuary with him, explaining that he s trying to escape Goodco, which stole his magic. Teaming up with his new friends superintelligent Emily and practical Erno Scott investigates the mystery that is Goodco, soon learning the awful and bizarre truth behind the company s origins and success. With talking rabbit-men, Bigfoot, riddles, and clever riffs on cereal company advertising, it all makes for an intriguing if convoluted tale. Rex takes his magically delicious premise seriously, though, finding the thin line between absurdity and comedy, while giving this story more gravitas and depth than might be expected. The inherent oddities are further played up in Rex s frequent illustrations, not all seen by PW. Ages 8 12.
