Auggie is the only human boy at the Stables, and he takes care of all the other animals.The Fabled Stables have a mind of their own, and every so often, the building SHAKES and SHUDDERS, TWITCHES and SPUTTERS—it’s making room for a new arrival! It’s Auggie’s job to ventureout and rescue a new creature from mortal danger. But will he be able to complete his mission beforeit’s too late? With some help from Fen (a literal stick-in-the-mud) and his animal companions, Auggie saves the day and makes a new friend in the process
