Teddy Fitzroy is back for another mystery — but this time, he’s the prime suspect.
In this action-packed sequel to the award-winning Belly Up, 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.
2014 SCIBA AWARD FINALIST
“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
