Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs

To me a book about a hippopotamus dying did not seem to be very interesting, but I read it so that I could get to the next book. It turns out that it was really fun to read. This book is about a boy who lives in the biggest Zoo in the world, FunJungle. His parents are both employees there and so he lives in a trailer park with the rest of the employees. He knows everything that is happening around the park so when a hippopotamus turns up dead, he is the first to go see it. What he finds out about the death is really shocking, but nobody believes him, so he has to go and investigate himself. I really enjoyed reading this although it seemed to me that some of the issues got resolved too easily. It was a fun easy read that any middle grade reader who is interested in animals and or mysteries would like.
