The Cryptid Catcher is the first book in a monstrously fun middle-grade duology by Lija Fisher about a boy who inherits a job hunting legendary creatures.

After Clivo Wrens archaeologist father dies mysteriously, the newly orphaned thirteen-year-old finds out the truth: his dad was no archaeologist. He was actually a cryptid catcher, known for finding elusive beasts like the bloodsucking chupacabra. His goal: discover the one extraordinary cryptid whose blood grants immortality--before the knowledge falls into the wrong hands. The mission remains unfinished, and now theres only one person who can take the renowned cryptid catchers place: Clivo. He may not know the first thing about monster hunting, but hes willing to give it a try--because anything beats staying home with his salsa-crazy aunt and her neurotic cats.

Praise for The Cryptid Catcher:

[Fisher] dishes up an action-oriented romp, puts a resourceful but not superhuman protagonist at the head of a colorful, diverse (of species as well as race) supporting cast, and salts the plot with tantalizing hints that the stakes are about to broaden." --Booklist, starred review

Fishers debut, the first half of a duology, delivers adventure and laughs. . .readers will be ready for the sequel when they turn the final page. --Kirkus Reviews
