It's hard being the new kid in town for Logan Wilde. He is the only son of an overworked man and a woman who ran away from their family, and he has yet to make any friends in the small Wyoming town. However, his simple reality changes quickly when Logan finds a griffin in his bedroom. This young talking griffin leads Logan into the menagerie of magical creatures where he becomes friends with fellow seventh-graders Zoe and Blue. Logan helps Zoe and Blue find the other five griffin cubs that have escaped their enclosure at the menagerie and are hidden all around town before they are discovered by the town’s ordinary citizens.
