There is no words to explain how great this is! I LOVE  Stuart Gibbs and his stories! We know how amazing belly up was and if you read that, you would know that Teddy would NEVER steal kazoo the koala! But all the evidence is pinned on him! It DEFINITELY does not help that large marge hates him! He really got himself into a pickle this time! But, how could the thief have gotten though the security and not leave the tinniest speck of evidence behind? This book wasn’t as hard to discover the truth but it’s still a huge challenge! I strongly recommend this book! I just wish Summer was in it more though...
If you enjoy/enjoyed this series, I suggest you try Stuart Gibbs’s spy school series and moon base alpha series! I read them both and I couldn’t stop! In case you are wondering, the series in order is:

book 1 belly up
book 2 poached
book 3 big game
book 4 panda monium
book 5 lion down
book 6 tyrannosaurus wrecks

By the way, my device isn’t working very well so I’m very sorry if this is hard to understand, or there is spelling mistakes!

I love this book. It's so adventures and fun. The mystery goes up and down. Thank you Stuart gibbs for writing this book. I also recommend the spy school series and space case series. I read all of the books and it's awesome.

Poached is the definition of awesomeness itself. Teddy Fitzroy is is the suspect of a crime: kidnapping a koala! Teddy and his friend Summer have to find the real suspect otherwise Teddy will be thrown in jail. All in all, I think that Poached is a great definition of awesomeness.

Part of the "FunJungle" series, this is another adventure starring 12-year-old Teddy Fitzroy. His life ought to be totally cool. After all, both of his parents work at Funjungle--a Texas animal and amusement park. That means Teddy lives there too. However, a bully at school is causing pain, literally, and another mystery rears its ugly head with Teddy, once again, as the prime suspect. Can our young hero defeat the bully, save the kidnapped koala, and keep himself out of prison? I must admit I've recently stumbled onto Stuart Gibbs and am thoroughly enjoying all his books. While ostensibly for middle schoolers these books are LONG and a lot of fun. Adults will enjoy them, too.

sexy book

After I read Belly Up, I simply had to ready this book. Unlike Belly Up, I think it was really obvious who stole Kazoo. But still, it was an awesome read.

I wish Summer was in it more though...

Poached is another great Funjungle adventure with Teddy Fitzroy. It all starts when Vance Jeesup the school bully forces him to drop manequin dummy parts in the shark tank. So he has to hide somewhere so he finds the koala exhibit door open and hides there but the same night the koala is kidnapped the evidence is piling up against Teddy can he prove he didnt do it?
