Opinion

From Library Staff

Henry the Hippo, the very mean star attraction of the FunJungle animal theme park has been murdered and it's up to 12-year-old Teddy Fitzroy to solve the mystery and cover up. A fun romp of a mystery featuring overweight security guards, midget clowns, and beautiful 13-year-old model/actresses.

best book evevr!!\

Why would anyone want to murder star attraction Henry the hippo, of FunJungle, the world's largest zoo? That's what 12-year-old Teddy wants to know. As he delves into the mysterious death of the rotund beast, Teddy discovers that Henry had racked up plenty of enemies during his time at the zoo from crabby security guards to a midget clown with a grudge. When Teddy joins forces with the ultra-wealthy daughter of the zoo's owner, Summer, in search of the killer the adventure becomes more than he bargained for as their lives are threatened when they get too close to the truth. Kids will love this fast-paced story chock full of zany characters, crazy antics and wild chase scenes. Peppered with fascinating animal facts, they'll even learn something along the way. Maud Hart Lovelace 2015 winner Grades 5-8. — Lynn M., Westonka Library

It is a great book and I recommend it for everyone. I recomend it for adults as well. You dont have to like mysterys to enjoy this book. Does have some materiel that contains the A word, but I would still recomend it for anyone over3rd grade and that is mature enough to see some non-blocked content.

This book is AWESOME. I really couldn't tell who killed Henry and in most mysteries I've read, it's really obvious. Even though I have no idea why he would kill Henry. I mean, Henry's not exactly a nice hippo but why? Why? Does it say in here somewhere?

I really suprised this book isn't famous. It's a really great book!
