Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[A] whopper of a whodunit that delivers plenty of suspects, action, slapstick, gross bodily functions, red herrings, and animal trivia. This sequel stands alone nicely, and while the mystery is solved at the end, new occurrences promise to make Teddy’s life much more interesting in a possible third book.” School Library Journal
“Gibbs’ clever plot, zoo setting, and likeable characters combine to produce a lively caper full of fast-paced twists and turns and red herrings (not to mention sharks, chimps, tiger cubs, and snakes)." Booklist
“This thrill-ride of a mystery is chock-full of hijinks for middle-grade sleuths and budding zoologists alike.” Kirkus Reviews
"[A] genuinely engaging mystery set in a zoo…This will appeal to animal and mystery lovers alike.” VOYA
“A playful musical introduction sets the tone for Gibson Frazier’s enthusiastic narration of this comical caper…Frazier conjures Teddy’s moments of excitement and dread with a high-energy pace dotted with suddenly deflated enthusiasm. Large Marge’s booming, grating voice humorously reveals her bossy character while more sentimental moments are delivered in softer, gentler tones. Frazier’s fine storytelling and a solid story convey the chaos in the zoo, making for an entertaining listen.” AudioFile
