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 wasn't as good as the first book, but it was still awesome nonetheless. Teddy has to find out who kidnapped a koala and why. Plus, he deals with problems from school, like bullies. Fortunately for him, he makes friends with jocks Dash and Ethan, and even the head cheerleader, Violet. Dash and Ethan help Teddy from being dunked into a toilet by the bullies, and now Teddy is allowed to sit with them! How cool is that? Well, Teddy now has to find the koala, and since he's still not allowed to do it, it takes him and Summer yet again to solve the mystery by being secret. Can they do it?

        After the crisis of Henry the Hippo being done, Teddy Fitzroy does not expect to be involved in another case. In other words, he is! The koala that Funjungle has rented has been kidnapped! Teddy finds himself suspecting a bunch of people, and he encounters others from the first book. This novel is an awesome sequel, one of the best I have read so far!

              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.
