Chupacabras of the Río Grande, The (The Unicorn Rescue Society #4)
By David Bowles and Adam Gidwitz
Pura Belpré Honor-winning author David Bowles joins Newbery Honor-winning Adam Gidwitz as co-author of the newest Unicorn Rescue Society adventure, as the kids travel to the U.S.-Mexican border to help the legendary chupacabras.
A new adventure begins for Elliot and Uchenna when Professor Fauna bursts into their classroom with
a frightening report from the Texas-Mexico border: something has completely drained the blood from
a cow's body! The team must fly to Laredo, where tempers are running high.
Teaming up with local kids Lupita and Mateo--plus their brilliant mother, Dr. Alejandra Cervantes, and her curandero husband, Israel--can the Unicorn Rescue Society save the region's animals and help bring a divided community together once more? And what is that spiny, bloodsucking, adorable little creature?
