      Read the complete and original review at Word SpelunkingMagical creatures (leprechauns, rabbit-men, fay, a might be bigfoot), clever young characters, wicked baddies, and an action packed, wildly fun and funny story…Cold Cereal by Adam Rex has everything you could ever want in an MG fantasy…and a heck of a lot that you never even knew you wanted!SUMMARY ON BACK OF ARCScottish Play Doe—aka Scott—is used to being a little different, and not just because of his name. Sometimes he hallucinat [...]

      Oh, Adam Rex. You are so cool, I can't really stand it. Example:In the prologue of this book, a series of people are passing by a pet carrier in an airport"A woman with a tight ponytail that hoisted her face into a permanent, painted grin bent in front of the cage.'Aw, hewwo, widdle Chihuahua,' she said. 'Hewwo.' Then she rose to go wherever it is people like that come from."Seriously. I love this man. I want all his tshirts.That saidThere is A LOT going on in this book. Junk Food Factory, puzzl [...]

      This book had me until the very end - the satirical look at breakfast cereals (who wouldn't want to try Burlap Crisp or KoKo Lumps?), the unicat, Harvey the semi-invisible rabbit-man were all fun and a little charming. I got the joke about Sir Reggie Dwight being John Doe. The idea that Emily and Erno had a strange (ok, bizarre) home life, that Scott saw strange things, that Goodco was, well, evil? All well and good.The setting is New Jersey and Goodco is a multi-national cereal company that als [...]

      Ever wonder what really is in your kids' cereal? Goodco Cereal Company claims "There's a little bit of magic in every box." Of course, most consumers don't realize that there is truth to this statement and that Goodco has an agenda for children all over the world. Scott's mom works for Goodco and the family moves to Goodborough, NJ where the Goodco headquarters is. He meets Erno and Emily Utz, a set of twins his age, who are geniuses. The kids soon find out that Goodco is experimenting on childr [...]

      I wanted to love this book . . . I really did. The premise of an evil cereal manufacturer stealing the magic of leprechauns, rabbits, and vampires to make its cereals so addicting is genius. But I just couldn't get into this book. It seemed like there was just one crazy thing happening after another and one crazy creature being introduced after another . . . many from completely out of nowhere. It kind of reminded me of the bedtime stories I made up for my kids when they were younger . . ding to [...]

      Q: Is this book funny? A: Well, don’t read it while you are actually trying to eat cold cereal, or you run the risk of blowing milk out your nose and possibly getting a blue candy marshmallow lodged in your sinus cavity.Q: Does this book illuminate important social issues? Can it be read within the marxist critical framework?A: Yeah, sure.Q: Does it have lots of vampires?A. Not really, no.

    7. Laura on said:

      This book has everything: non-stop action, a host of interesting and well-developed characters, complex and creative world-building, tons of humor but many touching parts as well, and charming illustrations. Also, a unicat.

    8. Liviania on said:

      I loved Adam Rex's first foray into middle grade books, the award-winning THE TRUE MEANING OF SMEKDAY. COLD CEREAL, unlike SMEKDAY, doesn't begin with an alien invasion and thus takes a bit longer to get off the ground. Instead, we're introduced to the Cold Cereal Trilogy's rather large ensemble which includes Erno and Emily Utz, twins who look nothing alike and live with their foster father and giant nanny, and Scottish Play Doe, the new kid in school who sees strange things. One of those thing [...]

      Have you ever picked up a book on a sheer whim? Maybe it wasn't a whim exactly which led me to read, "Cold Cereal" but the book's odd brand of whimsy radiated from the moment I laid eyes on the cover.In a plot that might delight fans of Terry Pratchet, Lemony Snicket and Monty Python, a clash of fairies, knights and breakfast cereals come together in a hodgepodge of humor and adventure that makes up the first in what appears to be a new series. Scottish Play Doe (Scott) is the son of a movie sta [...]

    10. Heidi on said:

      Scott, whose real name is Scottish Play Doe, has recently moved to Goodborough, New Jersey due to his mother’s new job at Goodco Cereal Company. Scott, who sometimes experiences hallucinations before getting migraines, begins to see some unusually strange, imaginary creatures such as a man with a rabbit head, a unicat (a cat with a single spiraling horn in the center of its forehead), and a leprechaun named Mick.Mick informs Scott that Goodco has been kidnapping magical creatures for their mag [...]

    11. Katie on said:

      Yet another fabulous audio book penned by Adam Rex. At this rate, I'm not sure I would enjoy reading the physical book as much on my own as hearing them read in such fabulous voices. This was a different narrator than "The True Meaning of Shmeckday", but the range was equally as impressive! The story had an excellent blend of characters, contemporary culture, mythology and advertising/consumption as a means to take over the world. A truly enjoyable read/listen, the only pro AND con was realizing [...]

    12. Kathy on said:

      This one is edging into 3.5 or 4 star territory, but I have to reserve that until I read the sequel. And, yes, there WILL be a sequel. This book ends fairly well, you are not left dangling off the cliff, but there's a lot more story available. And I did laugh. You can't help it.The Goode and Harmliss Cereal Company, (now known as Goodco, "There's a little bit of Magic in every box") has found a way of trapping magical creatures and draining their magical powers to use for evil purposes. I really [...]

    13. Beth on said:

      I think I need to read this book as opposed to listening to the audiobook. Where Adam Rex's humor shines in The True Meaning of Smekday, I wasn't quite feeling it as much in Cold Cereal. I think part of that had to do with the audiobook narrator's deadpan expression throughout the entire story. The only time he used any sort of expression in his voice was when he was doing character voices and even then, his voice for Emily and Polly were pretty much identical. Even at the height of tension and [...]

    14. Christiana on said:

      Listen, this book is kind of cracked out. It's cracked out in a way I ultimately enjoyed, but there were times in this book where I was like "why am I still READING this?". Then Adam Rex would pull me back in and I would look at the clock and realize I had been reading a long time. Still, it's a hard book to booktalk and a hard book to sell if you give too much information. Also, I don't think this is going to be a series so HOLY LOOSE ENDS, BATMAN. I feel like hardly anything got resolved at th [...]

    15. Josh Newhouse on said:

      a good read, creative, but at times painfully slow pratchettesque but would have been better paired down slightly not sure if students will enjoy or notry odd book quiet enjoyable overall to me, but with I think a small if fun audience would make a good Terry Gilliam movie

    16. Radynka on said:

      Toužila jsem, aby se mi ta kniha líbila. A jistým způsobem se mi i líbila. Byla tady spousta skvělých nápadů a nadpřirozených bytostí k zbožňování. Ale nemohla jsem se pořádně začíst, moc mě nezajímalo, co se bude dít dál a myslím, že si za pár měsíců nevzpomenu, o čem to vůbec bylo. Nicméně za kočkorožce dávám 3* :)

    17. Karen on said:

      I loved The True Meaning of Smekday, and this one had a lot of the same humor and fun characters. It just had a little too much going on in it to get really rolling until the very end, when I didn't want to put it down. Maybe some better pacing or planning would've brought this to a 4 star read for me.

    18. S. I. Wakely on said:

      I read "Cold Cereal" after immensely enjoying "The True Meaning of Smekday" series and found Adam Rex had stayed true to form: it was a well-crafted and hilariously fun book. I can't wait to read the rest of the series! Keep it up, Adam Rex!

      Je první díl Cereální ságy Křup! právě tak bláznivý a senzační jak se tváří?books-postcards-geocaches

    20. Nathaniel on said:

      Great book! Tells how the cereal company, Goodco, could be doing bad things for the Fay, a magical group of animals, such as leprechauns, unicorns, and many more.

    21. Madeline Rose on said:

      Initial Response WELL that was interesting. High Lights - Okay, so I really don't know how to review this book. It's like nothing I've ever read before.- Scott was probably my favorite character, which is good because he was the main character. XD His full name is Scottish Play Doe and can I just? That name? Like, WHAT IS THIS MADNESS? - (view spoiler)[ OKAY BUT THEN AT THE END. GAH. MACBETH. *slow clap* That was SO CLEVER and it just came together PERFECTLY AAAHHH.(hide spoiler)]- All the names [...]

    22. Ray Palmer on said:

      The weirdness of the premise is what attracted me: a book about an evil cold cereal company, secret societies, mad scientists, magical creatures, and abused orphans. Lots of action, a bit of horror, dark comedy, and tragedy.Unfortunately the author doesn't seem that confident in the story he's telling. It moves too fast without taking the time to let this bizarre setting simmer. It rushes over plot holes. The action sequences are undone by coincidence after coincidence. There is a lot of noise a [...]

    23. Natlukens on said:

      I enjoyed the first half of this much more than the rest. It seemed like it was going to be really fun. It reminded me of the show Gravity Falls, but then it got really bogged down and convoluted with this overly complicated backstory stuff with fairies and Merlin and time travel (sort of) I guess there are sequels and I can guess where they’re going in the next one. I don’t think I’ll read any more though.

    24. Michelle on said:

      A good, silly frolic with leprechauns, a possible bigfoot, super smart twins, and an evil breakfast cereal corporation. Sets itself up to be a series.Recommended ForFans of Skulduggery Pleasant, maybe a precursor to Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams.

    25. Yvonne on said:

      A good book I want my kids to read when they are a little older. It covers corporations, truth in advertising, Arthurian Legend, unnatural food ingredients, and mind control. Overall, very thought provoking. Though, it definitely makes me not want to eat cereal for awhile.

    26. Becky on said:

      This was another "Magic is real, and it sucks" book and I just wasn't in the mood. Also, it's definitely a book about boys for boys with only one protag who is female, and she feels very alien. I quit when they showed the wall of dead people heads. Not my kind of book.

    27. Kristie on said:

      I liked this book although it took me a little bit to get into it. Weird plot that kids will like and interesting characters with odd traits made this story appealing to me.
