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.

  1. Hey, Stu! I was rereading the first Spy School today, when I came across a passage that piqued my interest. “The next five were names I didn’t recognize: Percy Thigpen, Eustace McCrae, Robert Friggoletto, Eleanor Hasket, Xavier Gonzalez.”

    Xavier Gonzalez.

    Is this a throwaway line, like how you name-drop your kids into almost every story of yours? Or is this evidence of a … Stuart Gibbs Universe (a Stuniverse, if you will)?

    (lol i know you don’t plan on making a crossover anytime soon, but I have my fun)

  2. Stu-

    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?

  4. It challenges us to solve the mysteries ourselves? Judging from the crossbones on the top left corner of the cover that doesn’t seem very safe

  5. 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

    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.

    I understand that it is very hard to write a book so I want to make your job a little easier. I saw this on discord and wanted to share it with you:
    Summer and Teddy go on a date and Teddy leaves for the bathroom. When he comes back he finds out Summer been kidnapped, along with the new baby wolf the zoo just acquired. Teddy has got to figure out what happened. The end

    I hope you like it and consider putting it into a FunJungle book,
    Person

    I appreciate your enthusiasm but, counter to what you might think, it is actually HARDER to incorporate other people’s ideas into my books than it is for me to incorporate my own. For me, coming up with ideas is not difficult, although it is a long, involved process, which is why I really can’t accept other people’s ideas.

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

  10. 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.
    Charlie

    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.
