Genre: Cozy Mystery / Zoo Mystery / Series
Teddy Fitzroy returns as FunJungle’s resident sleuth when the zoo’s newest addition goes missing—before she even arrives!
FunJungle is frenzied, awaiting the arrival of its most thrilling animal yet—Li Ping—a rare and very expensive giant panda that the zoo went to enormous lengths to secure. But when the truck transporting Li Ping shows up, its precious cargo has vanished into thin air. The FBI steps in to investigate, and Teddy is happy to leave the job in their (supposedly) capable hands. After all, FunJungle has never encountered a crime this serious. But when someone threatens to blackmail Teddy’s girlfriend, Summer, if he doesn’t solve the crime, his involvement in this mystery is no longer black and white.
Star Rating: 5 stars
Having a 13 year old kid pit against the FBI definitely creates an interesting premise to a story. And that is what Panda-monium is about. In all the other stories, Teddy only had to deal with the staff of Fun Jungle. But with an internally acquired Panda missing, FBI has taken up ropes and Teddy is having a tough time keeping on by himself – especially when the lead FBI agent is Large Marge’s much hated sister.
Although completely unbelievable, Panda-monium was a fun story to go through. The adventures of Teddy and Summer along with his other school friends and Large Marge surely gives a lot of laughs. The 4th book in the FunJungle series does ensure that the fun element of the series is not lost along with adding new elements to the strength of the story. Having read all the other books, I can vouch that although Panda-monium can be read as a stand-alone, it would be highly recommended to read the previous books in the series to get the underlying meaning of a lot of situations which occur in this one.
Also having finished the last book in the series released so far, I am looking forward very eagerly for the next book to be released to join Teddy and Summer in their next adventure at FunJungle.
