Staff Reviews

Teddy Fitzroy would never have seen the whale explode if a kangaroo hadn't burned down his house, but this tends to be fourteen-year-old Teddy's world. He’s always in the middle of trouble while solving crimes involving bad things that people do to animals. He's good at it, and living at FunJungle Wild Animal Park, where both his parents work, gives him the desire and the opportunity to nail perpetrators. This time, he's far from his Texas FunJungle home, on a trip to Malibu with his rich girlfriend, whose parents own FunJungle. She cares a lot more about animals than money, and together it's time to figure out why anyone would want to detonate a massive, beached blue whale that already died, right in front of a bunch of mansions. There’s a lot to love about this book. The writing is smooth and fun, the characters are excellent, and I learned a lot. For example, rich people don’t like huge chunks of whale crashing through their obscenely expensive stuff, but more than that, Gibbs does a fine job of explaining nature and environmental issues without lecturing. I truly enjoyed learning from him while I was sailing through his story.
