In this Texas animal theme park mystery, 12-year-old "Teddy" Roosevelt Fitzroy is up to his elbows in a captivating case of hippo homicide. The sudden demise of Henry the Hippo captures our narrator's attention, but he quickly learns that FunJungle bigwigs would prefer to bury Henry quietly and move on to smaller matters. Refusing to let things rest, our self-taught Sherlock Holmes and his friend Summer McCraken pursue the big-lard murder even as dangers mount. Belly Up isn't just a very entertaining whodunit; it's packed with fascinating nature facts and illuminating details about animal welfare. Editor's recommendation. Now in paperback and NOOK Book; for readers eight thru 12.
