Although Logan, Zoe, and Blue have only been friends for a week, it's up to them to resolve every crisis that comes the Menagerie's way. They have to capture a basilisk that has escaped its enclosure with the help of Marco the werechicken. Then they have to deal with the merpeople’s strike and interpret a message from the kraken: which helps Logan and his father to find Logan's kidnapped mother. She was captured along with a Chinese dragon by the Sterlings who, for profit, intended to reveal the magical creatures of the Menagerie to the world. With the help of a powerful magical creature called Bob, they stop the Sterlings. Once they research Scratch’s family history, Logan, Zoe, and Blue find that the person sabotaging the Menagerie is a government agent named Delia. Delia wants revenge on Scratch’s family, but she is caught and peace finally returns to the Menagerie.
