CRISPIN BOYER lives in Xcalak, a small fishing village in Mexico, where he writes about history, wildlife, and technology. He and his wife live with their flock of hens, a turkey, two roosters, and a guard goose.
His 2013 cover story for National Geographic Kids magazine, Return of the Missing Lynx, won an Eddie Award for Best Single Article, Youth/Teen. The American Library Association chose his book This or That? as one of 2015's top picks for reluctant young-adult readers.
"This book will be a hit with fans of mythology...Readers will appreciate the overlay of this mythological world atop the real-life operations of a pet rescue center and how Boyer manages to fit all the plot pieces together perfectly. Great characters, action, adventure, and lots of humor will make this title a popular read in elementary libraries." -- School Library Connection
"A center for rescued pets becomes the stage for adventures of literally mythical import in this series opener ... lots of comical byplay ... A treat for proto–Percy Jackson fans.” — Kirkus Reviews
