Deskripsi

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.

    This Stuart Gibbs mystery is a great companion to Belly Up. I think I preferred Belly Up, maybe because the Hippo, even though he was dead, had a personality. Koala's apparently have zero. I was surprised to find out who the poacher was up until the very end. I liked the fact that Gibbs doesn't make everything end in a perfect world as that is not the way of the world. A lot of people did suffer and that happens in real life.
    Teddy's parents work for FunJungle, a zoo in Texas. They live in a company trailer park in back of the zoo. Teddy seems to find trouble and is always under the watchful eye of Large Marge, who is head of security and very much not a Teddy fan. Trouble comes to Teddy by way of a middle school bully named Vance and his minions, twins, referred to as JimTim. Vance coerces Teddy into pulling a prank at the shark tank or face a swirly in the Toilet of Doom. Here is where the mystery begins as Teddy finds refuge from his bullies in the koala exhibit. Later when Kazoo, the popular koala at the zoo comes up missing, the only suspect is Teddy who happens to be the only person who appears on the security videos.
    While a mystery, the book is still full of laughs and you will find emotions as Teddy is treated so unjustly.

    Poached by Stuart Gibbs is a fabulous action-packed middle grade read for those who love animals and adventures. A sequel that doesn’t disappoint and you don’t have to read the first one to really get to know the characters. Meet Teddy Fitzroy, a 7th grader who is the primary suspect when a Koala has gone missing from FunJungle, an exact definition of the name but in a zoo-like setting. Teddy’s parents both work at FunJungle and all of Teddy’s life he has spent with animals. Why would he take a newly acquired Koala on loan from Australia. He has been set up and he knows it but all the proof is directed at him. If Teddy doesn’t find the culprit he will be shipped off to juvie as a convicted koala-napper. To top off his bad luck, Teddy is also bullied by the meanest and toughest kid in the middle school, Vance. Teddy just can’t seem to catch a break, yet his perseverance prevails. An extremely well-written story about mystery, animals, bullying, as well as a sweet coming of age story that will keep you on the edge of your seat guessing who took the Koala from the beginning to the end. Recommended for ages 8-12.

    Poached is a fun, entertaining, barrel of laughs! I could not stop reading this book. I had a really good laugh during the koala death scene. Don't worry it is really not that bad and no "real" koalas were hurt during this part. Teddy is not that great of a spy/detective but this is what makes this book so much fun to read. It is because of all of the trouble that he finds himself in that makes things interesting. Any kid who reads this book is going to want to live at an amusement park. In fact, the idea sounds fun that I would want to live at one as well. There were many eccentric characters in this book. The author did a good job with this book. Keeping it fun but also easy to read for the targeted audience of the younger readers. I had so much fun reading this book that I am going to go back and check out the prior novels.

    Stuart Gibbs has written a fast paced mystery/whodunit for the 8-12 year old set that should be flying off the shelves soon after the publishing date April 8, 2014. The setting is a zoo/amusement park hybrid in south central Texas. In fact, FunJungle is the world's largest zoo, spreading over enough acres that it's security force is treated like an independent police force of a small town. That is good news and bad news for Teddy Fitzroy, the 12 year old protagonist of Poached. Good news because his parents work and live there, and bad news because the security force considers him the prime suspect of every unsavory incident they come across.Teddy's life is also complicated by a bully situation at the Lyndon B. Johnson Middle School he attends. The menacing Vance Jessup comes up with a prank to pull at FunJungle and he intimidates Teddy into participating. Vance steals a mannequin and insists that Teddy be the one to drop a fake arm into the shark tank! The prank is pulled, mayhem ensues, and soon "Large Marge," head of park security, is racing to arrest Teddy.The shocker is that the crime he is accused of is kidnapping the park's star attraction, the popular koala bear Kazoo, which is on loan from the Australian government! How did that happen? Who is responsible? And will Teddy be able to find answers to these questions before Large Marge can send him to Juvie?And will he ever get out from under the threat of imminent bodily harm from Vance and his fellow thugs while simultaneously avoiding pulling more dangerous and possibly illegal pranks? A fun read with interesting characters, some of whom were part of a previous work of Stuart, Belly Up, which was also set in FunJungle and featured the unfortunate demise of the park's hippo. Be watching for this one!
