We are head over paws to announce that our neighbor, the magnificent middle-reader maestro Stuart Gibbs will be visiting once again and treating us to his newest novel in the FunJungle mystery series Panda-monium. Teddy Fitzroy returns as FunJungle’s resident sleuth when the zoo’s newest addition goes missing—before she even arrives! Join us for a panda-nomenal reading, talk and signing.
In Panda-monium, 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.
Stuart Gibbs is the author of the FunJungle and Moon Base Alpha series, as well as the New York Times bestselling Spy School series. He has written the screenplays for movies like See Spot Run and Repli-Kate, worked on a whole bunch of animated films, developed TV shows for Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, ABC, and Fox. Stuart lives with his wife and children in our neighborhood! You can learn more about what he’s up to at StuartGibbs.com.
