The FunJungle Collection: Belly Up; Poached; Big Game

Join FunJungle’s resident zoo sleuth, Teddy Fitzroy, as he solves mysteries and strives to protect the animals at the zoo with the first three funny and suspenseful novels of the bestselling FunJungle series from New York Times bestselling author Stuart Gibbs, now available together in one collectible boxed set!

It all starts when the hippo goes belly up—and it’s a wild ride from there.

When Teddy Fitzroy moved into FunJungle, the nation’s largest zoo, with his scientist parents, he expected things to be kind of quiet. There’d be the occasional elephant stampede and water balloon fight with the chimpanzees, of course, but when Henry the Hippo dies from not-so-natural causes, Teddy suspects foul play. And that was just the beginning. He begins to realize that the zoo is far more exciting than he thought it was, and soon the mysteries at FunJungle are piling up...

This collectible boxed set includes hardcover editions of Belly Up, Poached, and Big Game.

    Stuart Gibbs never fails to amaze me. His works are some of the most clever, creative, and enticing books I have ever had the pleasure of reading- FunJungle included. The series takes place in a tourist attraction called- I bet you'll never guess- FunJungle. We follow Teddy Fitzroy, a twelve-year-old boy, as he solves mysteries revolving around FunJungle's animal inhabitants (a hippo that appeared to have died unnaturally, a rhino being shot at, etc.) Later on in the series, the focus shifts to animals outside of FunJungle (dinosaur bones being stolen, a local mountain lion, a bear at Yellowstone), a change I personally wasn't too fond of. I also wasn't Summer x Teddy's biggest fan- I felt as though their relationship became pretty bland after they started "dating"- but it wasn't too distracting from the plot overall. That being said, the mysteries and action were RIVETING. I can proudly say I binge-read this series! With its unique characters, fun animal factoids, and a rollercoaster of a plot, FunJungle had me hooked, and I hope it hooks you too!
