Teddy Fitzroy returns as FunJungle’s resident sleuth when a lion is falsely accused of killing a distinguished dog in the latest novel in New York Times bestselling author Stuart Gibbs’s FunJungle series.
For once, operations at the enormous zoo/theme park appear to be running smoothly (except for the occasional herring-related mishap in the penguin exhibit) and Teddy Fitzroy is finally able to give detective work a rest. But then a local lion is accused of killing a famous dog—and the dog’s owner, an inflammatory radio host, goes on a crusade to have the cat declared a nuisance so it can be hunted. But it looks like the lion might have been framed, and a renegade animal activist wants Teddy and Summer to help prove it. Soon, Teddy finds himself wrapped up in the middle of his most bizarre, hilarious, and dangerous case yet.
Mr: This book was pretty good. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, and, while it was a typical ending characteristic of Stuart Gibbs, it was enjoyable and the characters, for the most part, were well thought out and the setting was vivid in my imagination. Teddy’s predicaments are almost laughable at times, and sometimes you just need a book that is light and can make you laugh out loud. Don’t take that the wrong way, though. There are some very serious issues touched in this book with expert mastery. They are climate change and animal rights, and it opens your eyes to how inhumane some people can be to animals. Overall, a fantastic read that leaves you pondering long after you’ve read it.
Racheal: This is the first Stuart Gibbs book that I’ve read & I must say I really enjoyed it. This is a fun romp of a mystery set inside & outside an animal theme park. But it is also a book that is giving kids some serious info about conservation efforts, habitat loss & other threats to the earths wild animals & just some fun animal facts about many of the inhabitants of “FunJungle” Animal Park. The protagonists are well written and likable, the dialogue is fast moving & often witty. I think elementary kids are really going to enjoy this book.
A “Thank you” would be nice!
