In the book there were two kids named Corey and Ellen. They get to have a sleep over at the zoo. Well, when they find out that a robber is at the zoo and they are alone with him. Will the robber catch them or not? I recommend this book to 3rd graders and up. I think that everyone would like this book because it is dangerous. I think that this book is for people that like dangerous things.

There is a very exciting book called Terror at the Zoo! The author is Peg Kehret. Ellen and Corey get invited to stay overnight at the zoo. They are staying with their grand parents. Also their mom and dad are on an airplane. They are getting ready to go to the zoo and then something bad starts happening. Everything goes wrong. Their grandma hurts her leg and grandpa takes her to the hospital. And their mom and dad aren't back yet. So Corey and Ellen end up at the zoo alone... with an escaped prisoner. I thought it was a very good book. It has a lot of action so if you like action you will like this book.

Terror at the zoo is a scary, exciting, interesting book. Corey and Ellen Streater get locked in the zoo at night with a burglar. Will they escape? Will they get hurt? Will they get caught by the burglar? It is a mystery you will only find the answer to if you pick up this book and read for your life. My favorite part is when Ellen and Cory go to the zoo thinking their parents will meet them there because that¿s when the suspense starts. I recommend this book for 3rd grade and higher.

This book is really good. The setting is at the Zoo at night. Some kids are locked inside of a zoo. There is a man in a zoo to. The man stalks there every move. He wants to kidnap them. The book is really good. I really liked this book. The authors change in the book by being calm at the beginning of the zoo, but when it was night they were scared.The setting never really changed.
