Teddy Fitzroy’s back for another zoo mystery—this time it’s a koala caper—in this action-packed follow-up to Belly Up, which Kirkus Reviews called “great fun.”

School troublemaker Vance Jessup thinks Teddy Fitzroy’s home at FunJungle, a state-of-the-art zoo and theme park, is the perfect place for a cruel prank. Vance bullies Teddy into his scheme, but the plan goes terribly awry.

Teddy sneaks into the koala exhibit to hide out until the chaos dies down. But when the koala goes missing, Teddy is the only person caught on camera entering and exiting the exhibit.

Teddy didn’t commit the crime—but if he can’t find the real culprit, he’ll be sent to juvie as a convicted koala-napper.

    This is the second book in the FunJungle series by Stuart Gibbs, Teddy gets accused of stealing a koala by Large Marge, the head of security, who has a serious grudge on Teddy because he is always playing pranks. But he would never break the law! In order to prove his innocence, he has to find the real kidnapper, even though J.J. McKracken told him not to, or else he might fire his parents. Teddy, once again turns out to be smarter than Large Marge, who is so focused on busting him, she almost lets the kidnapper get away. On top of all that, he is getting bullied at school, but in the end, everything turns out fine, and Teddy even ends up at the popular table in the cafeteria. This book was all right, but I think that all of Stuart Gibbs' books are pretty much the same, it's always the same plot, same writing style, and same character personalities. My favorite series of his is Spy School, but after that it gets pretty repetitive.
