Summary
Pura Belpre 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. Elliot and Uchenna have only just returned from their most recent Unicorn Rescue Society mission when Professor Fauna whisks them away (Jersey, too!), on their next exciting adventure. This time, they're headed to Laredo, on the U.S.-Mexican border to help another mythical creature in need: the chupacabras. Teaming up with local kids Lupita and Mateo Cervantes--plus their brilliant mother, Dr. Alejandra Cervantes and her curandero husband Israel--the kids struggle to not only keep the chupacabras safe, but also to bring a divided community together once more

Summary
"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?"--Page [4] of cover
