Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

In the third installment of this fantasy series, the four Action Scouts, Richie, Ella, Noah and Megan, must band together to save both the magical world beneath the Clarksville Zoo and their own from the evil "Shadowist" DeGraff and his army of Sasquatches.

Together with the teenage "Descenders" and a team of amazing animals, the Scouts go further into the world of the Secret Zoo than ever before, moving from portal to portal through the Grottoes in a desperate attempt to keep the Shadowist from infiltrating the Secret Zoo and creating an army of creatures to "storm the Earth." While the plot has page-turner potential, the narrative gets mired down in description, costing the novel much of its sense of suspense. Chick dwells far too long on the history of the zoo and traveling through the intricate system of portals and far too little on developing characters and building a sense of urgency—two things that would go a long way toward keeping readers invested in the story.

While there may be enough interaction between the Scouts and zoo animals like Podgy the flying penguin and P-Dog the prairie dog to please animal lovers, readers looking for a fast-paced thrill will likely be disappointed.(Fantasy. 9-12)

    Can't Wait To Get My Hands On This One!

    1 & 2 are the greatest books! I read them to my nine year old for some private mom and daughter time. I don't know who loves the stories more, her or me? Bryan has a great imagination and his attention to detail is amazing. I will be pre-ordering this. But I will be looking for his book signing... I have the other two signed. :)

    Very excited

    We have the first two books in Mr. Chick's Secret Garden Series. My daughter had the honor of having Mr. Chick visit her school. My 13 y/o son really loves the books...and getting him to read isn't an easy task. A must have for our library
