Gibbs, Stuart Poached, 329 pgs. Simon & Schuster, 2014. $15.99. Language: G; Violence: PG (bullying) Mature Content: G.
When the new (on loan) Koala at FunJungle is discovered missing, Teddy is implicated as he was seen entering and exiting the exhibit (because he had recently tossed a mannikin arm and foot into the shark tank and was hiding from security guard Large Marge) but he didn’t do it, and now, it’s up to Teddy to clear his name and find the missing koala.
This fun sequel to Belly up lets readers solve another mystery with Teddy. Again, lots of suspects, more than one mystery, and this time, a school bully and popular kids! A great elementary read, many middle school kids will also appreciate the slapstick chases (slipping in vomit etc.) and situations. If you liked Belly up, you need to keep going and read Poached.
