Teddy Fitzroy's back for another zoo mystery—this time it's a koala caper—in this action-packed follow-up to Belly Up, which Kirkus Reviews called "great fun."
School troublemaker Vance Jessup thinks Teddy Fitzroy's home at FunJungle, a state-of-the-art zoo and theme park, is the perfect place for a cruel prank. Vance bullies Teddy into his scheme, but the plan goes terribly awry.
Teddy sneaks into the koala exhibit to hide out until the chaos dies down. But when the koala goes missing, Teddy is the only person caught on camera entering and exiting the exhibit.
Teddy didn't commit the crime—but if he can't find the real culprit, he'll be sent to juvie as a convicted koala-napper.

"A playful musical introduction sets the tone for Gibson FrazierÕs enthusiastic narration of this comical caper. Teddy is an eighth-grader who lives at a zoo and theme park. When the school bully forces Teddy to pull a prank on the shark tank, Teddy finds himself accused of kidnapping the prized koala. Frazier conjures TeddyÕs moments of excitement and dread with a high-energy pace dotted with suddenly deflated enthusiasm. Large MargeÕs booming, grating voice humorously reveals her bossy character while more sentimental moments are delivered in softer, gentler tones. FrazierÕs fine storytelling and a solid story convey the chaos in the zoo, making for an entertaining listen. M.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
