Logan
Logan is in 7th grade and new to Xanadu. He and his father moved there from Chicago so that Logan's father could find Logan's mother. She disappeared after leaving them a post card.

Zoe
Zoe is a worrier. Her backpack smells and she doesn't care about her appearance. She rarely talks to anyone but Blue. She seems to have lost something and is desperate to find it.

Blue
Blue is calm and a good friend. He has blond hair with a slight green tint to it. He smells of the sea, which is weird because there is no ocean nearby. He is a very good friend to Zoe.

Logan Wilde is accidentally drawn into the mysterious, dangerous world of the Menagerie when he discovers a griffin hiding under his bed . . . and it leads him straight to the weirdest girl in seventh grade, Zoe Kahn.

Zoe is panicking. Her family has been guarding the Menagerie for centuries. If they don't get the cubs back fast, the whole place will be shut down. To save the griffins' lives, she's willing to break all the rules, even if it means letting an outsider like Logan help. But the real mystery remains: Is someone trying to sabotage the Menagerie?
