Merhorses and Bubbles (Zoey and Sassafras Book 3) Kindle Edition
From the Publisher
Magical animals, science, mystery, and adventure -- oh my!
A series that's perfect for a wide range of ages.
Each story in the Zoey and Sassafras series features a new magical animal with a problem that must be solved using science. There isn't a set formula for each book; Zoey sometimes needs to run experiments, while other times she needs to investigate a mystery, and yet other times she needs to do research. Zoey models how to keep a science journal through her handwritten entries in each story. Each story is complete with a glossary of the kid-friendly definitions for scientific terms used.

"...Citro gracefully balances her story’s scientific and fantasy elements." -- Publishers Weekly
"...the imaginative premise and the incorporation of STEM elements make this an attractive and engaging choice." -- Booklist
"...tales for young audiences that model the scientific method are nice to see." -- Kirkus Reviews
"...a delightful beginning reader. I will definitely recommend this to kids and I look forward to the other books in this series." -- Mel Barnes, University Bookstore
"Zoey and Sassafras are our heroes! My kids love unravelling their mysterious circumstance, and they even made their own "thinking goggles." Zoey is an awesome role model." -- Megan Lingo, Reading Teacher and Educational Therapist at Chickadee Lit
"Citro takes the “girl helping animals” trope of beginning chapters to a whole new level. Filled with scientific language and experiments, including a helpful glossary, Zoey is encouraged to make mistakes, fail, and get up and keep trying. There’s no lack of child appeal either; both boys and girls will delight in the magical creatures and brisk storytelling and will be eager to try some of their own scientific experimentation, even if they can’t find a dragon!" -- Jennifer Wharton, Jean Little Library --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In each book, Zoey performs at least one experiment that is easily replicated at home, almost always with items you would already have around your kitchen. It’s such a fun way to bring another level of immersion and learning to these fantastic books. It has been really neat for my child to see Zoey’s experiments in action.
As of writing this, we have just finished book 4 out of 6 currently published in the series. Asia Citro’s books are so well written and enjoyable that I find myself absolutely treasuring our reading time together on a whole new level whenever Zoey and Sassafras are on our reading menu. Not only have I eagerly bought the whole set—one book at a time as we finished them off—but I’ve found that my child is extra eager to dive into chapter books now.
Oh—and the illustrations are ADORABLE.
I can not praise these books highly enough, and I am so relieved and excited to see that she is working on a 7th book to be released later this year.
First time in my life that I read a children's book and was captivated with my child.. :D
