Teddy Fitzroy is back for another zoo mystery.
But this time, he’s the prime suspect.
Kazoo the Koala, the newest star attraction at FunJungle, has been stolen and all the evidence points to Teddy. The only way he can clear his name is to crack the case and find the missing marsupial– and he better do it fast, before he’s shipped off to juvenile hall.
“This thrill-ride of a mystery is chock-full of hijinks for middle-grade sleuths and budding zoologists alike.” - Kirkus Reviews
“[W]hopper of a whodunit that delivers plenty of suspects, action, slapstick, gross bodily functions, red herrings, and animal trivia. This sequel stands alone nicely.” - School Library Journal
“Gibbs’ clever plot, zoo setting and likable 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
“[A] genuinely engaging mystery set in a zoo. . . . Poached is so strong that it is surprisingly second in a series. . . . This will appeal to animal and mystery lovers alike.” - VOYA
And don’t forget about Stuart Gibbs’s other great middle-grade books: Belly Up, Spy School, Spy Camp and the Last Musketeer trilogy. (For more details, click here.)
