In the latest novel in New York Times bestselling author Stuart Gibbs’s FunJungle series, Teddy Fitzroy returns as FunJungle’s resident sleuth to solve his most improbable mystery yet—with a victim that’s 65 million years old.

Teddy was all set for a campout at his friend Sage’s family ranch—but then Sage gets terrible news: The skull of a rare dinosaur that was being excavated on his property has mysteriously vanished overnight in the middle of a rainstorm, even though it weighed 500 pounds. Not a single footprint has been left behind. Since the dinosaur was top secret, the police don’t believe anyone outside the dig could have stolen it.

A T-rex skull can sell for millions of dollars, and everyone is a suspect—including J.J. McCracken, the owner of FunJungle.

Meanwhile, Teddy’s old foes, the Barksdale twins, have gotten into trouble with an illegally purchased anaconda, and Teddy’s girlfriend Summer wants to find out who’s behind the local trade in black market reptiles. The two cases will drag Teddy into more danger and chaos than ever before, in this mystery that’s stranger than fiction.

    How do you drag a 500-pound dinosaur skull through the mud on a rainy day? Does that sound even remotely possible? Teddy is asked to investigate a mysterious crime on his friend Sage's Farm: a thief stole a dinosaur skull, seemingly without a trace! How could someone do it? Sage asks Teddy to figure out the impossible crime. If he doesn't Sage may lose his ranch! Also, the local police think that Summer's dad, J.J McCracken, stole the bones, and if Teddy fails, FunJungle might be shut down! I like how every FunJungle book talks about an issue about animals, like habitat destruction, or the illegal pet trade. I recommend this book to animal lovers.

        This book is great, but not as good as the previous ones ( and I mean not as action in the novel), which is why I only gave it two stars. In this book, Teddy has to solve yet another mystery, this time of an animal that is extinct: the king of the dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus Rex. The skull of the beast has been stolen from Teddy's friend Sage's farm! This time though, Teddy does not want to participate. But he eventually gets convinced, and the adventure of a lifetime begins!
