Limited collector’s edition of Panda-monium, the fourth book in Stuart Gibbs’s FunJungle series, featuring an exclusive jacket with shiny green foil, and with panda pictures and facts on the reverse side—plus 16 pages of bonus content, including police reports and a Q&A between Stuart Gibbs and a panda expert.

Teddy Fitzroy returns as FunJungle’s resident sleuth when the zoo’s newest addition goes missing—before she even arrives!

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.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s no doubt one of my favorites. It’s especially good for 4th through 6th grade, but it’s great for the whole family, too. If you like to read books as a family, this book is the way to go.

I got this book the day it came out finished it in 24 hours. I finished it so quickly beacause it was really suspensful, and had an amazing plot. I liked a lot of things about this book but these 3 were my favorites: I really like how in most funjungle books there are two mysterys happening at the same time. In this book it was who taught the dolphins to pants people (which added a corny touch to the book) and of course that the panda is missing. My second favorite part of this book is the characters. I love how Stuart Gibbs made marges sister be the FBI agent in charge. (I think thats a small spioler) It added a whole new levle of conflict to the plot (which was amazing). And my third favorite part was the plot. Its another one of Stuart's amazing plots with twists and turnes that you don't expect to keep you hooked. I know you are probably like "isnt what he/she liked the whole book?" And I guess it is but whatever. This my favorite Funjungle book so far and everybody should read it.

Li Ping is in Trouble! When you right a series about zoo animals, you have to include pandas. In fact, it almost surprises me that it took Stuart Gibbs until the fourth book in the FunJungle series to write Panda-monium. Whether you are a fan of the series or picking up the book because you love all things panda, this book will definitely entertain. If you’ve missed these books, they are a middle grade mystery series set in FunJungle, a combination zoo and amusement park in the middle of Texas. Okay, so the rides are still being built in this book, but the zoo has some wonderful sounding exhibits. Our main character is Teddy Fitzroy, whose parents both work for the park. He also happens to be friends with Summer, the park owner’s daughter. Honestly, if this place really existed, I’d love to go visit it, and I’m not much of a zoo person. And don’t let the middle grade target audience fool you. These are some fantastically plotted mysteries with strong characters all ages will enjoy. It’s the big day for FunJungle. They have been granted the privilege of adding a panda to their many zoo animals. As always, they’ve gone all out to create the perfect environment for Li Ping. And they’ve taken every precaution they could to help her arrive in comfort via a custom built truck. While they’ve tried to keep her arrival a secret, word has gotten out and the front gate is crowded with panda fans. Of course, Teddy Fitzroy is on hand as well, although he’s inside the park thanks to his connections. It’s why he is on hand when the back of the truck is actually opened to reveal nothing inside. Li Ping and the veterinarian assigned to travel with her are nowhere to be found. With the threat of an international incident, the FBI quickly swoop in, and Teddy figures this is one mystery in FunJungle he won’t be solving. That is until Large Marge corners Teddy. While he and the security guard have had a contentious relationship (to put it mildly), she wants Teddy to investigate the panda’s disappearance, and she isn’t above using blackmail to get Teddy to do it. But with the FBI involved, will he find any clues without getting into trouble? Of course, this plot teaser leaves out a very fun sub-plot involving the dolphins at FunJungle. The two are perfectly balances to keep readers engaged the entire way through the book. And when I got to the end, I couldn’t believe the clues I had missed along the way. Yes, once again, the mystery is perfectly put together with clues and red herrings that keep us guessing until the very end. The characters are growing and changing as this series goes along as well, something that can be rare in a middle grade mystery, but I find refreshing. The cast is fantastic, and I just love them. Stuart Gibbs uses these books to point out the very real dangers facing some of the endangered animals on our planet. Yet, that is never the focus of the book but an aspect to it. After all, I can’t forget the fun. Yes, the FunJungle setting lives up to its name. Who wouldn’t want to have almost free reign of a zoo/amusement park. Plus we get great humor coming from the characters and some of the situations they find themselves in. Believe me, you’ll find plenty to laugh out in between the danger and the clues. So settle back and get ready for some Panda-monium. This book will delights fans of the series and create plenty of new ones.
