Gr 3-7–Teddy and his friends have a new mystery to solve in this latest installment of the “Funjungle” series—the improbable theft of a rare, 500-pound T. Rex skull worth millions that was found on Teddy’s friend Sage’s ranch. The local bumbling sheriff thinks the theft must be a hoax and refuses to spend much time on the case, so Sage asks Teddy to investigate. Soon everyone’s a suspect and Teddy and his friends have their hands full trying to solve the mystery. Side plots about the exotic animal pet trade, as well as animal abuse within the zoo (the “Zebra Spanker”) add further intrigue and excitement. As in other “Funjungle” books, Gibbs mixes in plenty of information to keep animal lovers happy—such as how snakes flick their tongues to aid in smelling.
VERDICT Gibbs has managed once again to write an engaging and educational fiction book that kids will love. Buy where the rest of the series is popular.
