New FunJungle mystery now available — in Super Puzzletastic Mysteries!

Hey everyone!

Many of you have been writing to me, saying that you need a great new book to read.  Well I have one for you.

Super Puzzletastic Mysteries is out today.  It has twenty great short stories written by a cavalcade of exceptional Middle Grade authors: folks like Chris Grabenstein, James Ponti, Kate Milford, Lauren Magaziner, Peter Lerangis… and more.  Including a short FunJungle mystery by me.  Grabenstein himself edited them all — and did his usual, excellent job. Some are hilarious.  Some are touching.  And all are wonderful.

And, for extra fun, you get to match wits with these mystery writers.  Like Encyclopedia Brown mysteries, each story challenges you to solve it — before turning to the back of the book to see if you’re right.

    Why did you decide to do a monkey problem when you already did one in Big Game with Pancake?

    I don’t recall there being any metal thing in the river. Could you be more specific?

    Now if I told you where to look for Easter Eggs, that would take all the fun out of finding them.

    Are you only making 7 books in the FunJungle series? And when is the 7th one coming out?

  5. JKannan –

    I do not know how many books will be in the FJ series. If you look to the right side of every single column of this website, you will see an upcoming releases box.

    I forgot to ask you, is there any chance of a Belly Up movie? And are you going to be doing another book like the Super Puzzletastic Mysteries (maybe with a short story about spy school)?

    PS. I love your books! Especially FunJungle and Spy School!

  7. Jkannan –

    I would love for there to be an FJ movie, but there are no plans for that right now.

    And no plans for any more short story anthologies either.

  8. why is there always characters with similar personalities in different books? What i mean is warren is similar to roddy and xaviar: they all want to get another girl that already likes the main character and they are physically weak with no talents. zoe is similar to summer and kira, because they are all happy and help the main character in solving mysteries. Then theres always the main character, like ben, dash and teddy. i hope you do not take offense, i love your books a lot!

    I would argue that those characters are rather different than you are making it sound. Yes, they have some similarities, but they also have many differences. All stories have main characters, so the fact that Ben, Dash and Teddy are all main characters is not exactly a similarity.

  10. Hi Stu!
    I really like your books, and
    I’m so excited for SS revolution to come out!
    Also I wonder what The next Charlie Thorne is going to be about.

    If there is a Spy School movie, is the cast going to be the real ages they are in the books (or look like it), or is it going to be like the Percy Jackson movies, where even though the characters are 12 in the books, they’re like 17 in the movies?
    I know you don’t decide the cast but are you hoping for the actors/actresses to be the same age as the characters?

  12. Stu-
    Is Doc’s daughter’s name Lily or Susie? In Belly Up it says, “If I didn’t do his dirty
    work, he’d turn Susie in,” but in Lion Down, her name is Lily. Was it a misprint?

  13. Hey Stu,
    I love Spy School and Funjungle, and understand that the less books you are writing at a time gives you more time to focus on each one, but I was wondering if you were planning on writing another series

    In response to one of my earlier questions, you said that FunJungle is about the size of the San Diego Zoo, but the San Diego Zoo is only about 100 acres. There are much larger zoos by area, even though FunJungle is said to be the largest in the world. This would lead me to assume that the FunJungle series takes place in an alternate universe, or else in the future where a bunch of zoos have been destroyed(which is not likely.)However, Trump’s decision to remove America from the Paris Accord apparently impacts the world in which Spy School takes place. So, Spy School most likely takes place in the future of our universe. I’m not sure if this was deliberate or not. It could have just been a mistake. But according to this logic, the Xavier Gonzalez in Spy School would most likely be a throwaway. Unless he could travel through universes…… but that’s not likely. Is Xavier Gonzalez just the name of someone you know, like Violet and Dashiell?

    Somewhere in Belly Up, I say that the FJ property is 10 square miles, which is actually enormous. But the theme park itself doesn’t take up all that property — yet. That said, are you sure I didn’t say the park was the size of the SD Safari park?

  16. Hey Stu
    I am an Eight grader and I am 13 and I have to say I really love your books i am not one of those kids who started reading because of the pandemic ive been reading since 2013 and been a fan of your books since 2017 my favorite of the series was obviously spy school but i love all the other ones too i have finished the funjungle series and the mba series (ive also made a short story of the continuation of mba as mbb) ive read charlie thorne and all i am missing is the three musketeers i cant wait to read it thank you for your inspiration as it has pushed me in to becoming a grade a student today, Your pal Teddy

    P.S. Sorry for the grammar but as I a in the iddle of reading and want to continue the book (i am rereading the spy school series.)

  17. Teddy –

    Glad to hear that you have enjoyed my books. Still, it’s always much easier to read a comment when someone takes the time to put periods at the end of sentences.

  18. TheAce –

    I wrote my first book when I was in kindergarten. But I didn’t get a book published until much later.

  19. Hi Stuart Gibbs! I have finished all of the books in the Funjungle series and i wanted to say that i loved them all so much and i was hoping that maybe you could make another book in the series and i hope that maybe Summer and Teddy can i don’t know kiss some more i guess. I’m looking for some more Funjungle madness!
    Thank you so much.

    I do not have any idea how much longer the FJ series will go. I will write until I feel like it is getting old.

  21. Riv –

    No. FJ8 will not be out until 2023 and I have many books to write before that. Don’t expect a plot or title reveal for at least 18 months.

  22. I don’t usually like surprise but I really really want the book to come out as soon as possable (really all your books to come out).

  23. Fk –

    If you look in the right hand column of every single page of this website under Upcoming Releases you will find the answer to your question.

  24. Madie –

    The next FJ book will not be out until spring of 2023. I am not ready to share details about it now but will have them in a few months.
