Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt Fitzroy has murder on his hands and trouble on his tail. He believes that Henry, the hippopotamus at the brand-new FunJungle, has been murdered. The zoo’s top brass claim the hippo went belly up the natural way, but Teddy and his feisty friend Summer McCraken have other ideas. Could the culprit be FunJungle’s animal-hating head of operations? Or is it FunJungle’s owner - Summer’s dad - a man who is much more concerned about money than animal welfare? The deeper Teddy and Summer dig, the more danger they’re in - because when it comes to hippo homicide, the truth can’t be caged!

Amazing Book!!!

Very entertaining in the car and just a fun book in general. The narrator is the same narrator who read the spy school series, which I thought was a good decision since he has done such an exceptional job in the past. A must-buy.

It was great! This was my fist time reading or listening to it so I got some spoilers from the other books in the series but it was unexpected!

Only Okay

As a fan of the Spy School series, I had high hopes for this, but some parts felt like thinly-veiled textbook content, plus what's the author's issue with people who are overweight, and why do things scare little "girls" instead of little "kids"? I'm hoping this was an early novel, and the author matures over time. Honestly, I didn't make it through the whole book; I ended up skipping to the end after a few chapters, and didn't feel like I missed anything.

Not appropriate for kids

This book has profanity and a little girl undresses in front of a boy. We stopped there.
