Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs, 294 pages, read by Leslie, on 04/09/2012

Belly Up

12 year old Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt Fitzroy has got a murder on his hands and trouble on his tail. Henry, the hippopatamus at the brand-new nationally known FunJungle, has gone belly up. Even though it’s claimed he died of natural causes, Teddy smells something fishy and it sure ain’t the polar bear’s lunch.

A good book for kids to enjoy the mystery and trying to solve it before the book revealed the culprit.  Being used to adult mysteries, I did not enjoy it as much but kids are liking it when I recommend it.  No talking animals but a good example of needing to talk to adults about issues.
