Tyrannosaurus Wrecks

In thi latest ovel in New York Times bestselling author Stuart Gibbs ’ s FunJungle series, Teddy Fitzroy returns as FunJungle ’ s resident sleuth to solve his most improbable mystery yet—with a victim that ’ s 65 million years old.

Teddy was all set for a campout at his friend Sage ’ s family ranch—but then Sage gets terrible news: The skull of a rare dinosaur that was being excavated on his property has mysteriously vanished overnight in the middle of a rainstorm, even though it weighed 500 pounds. Not a single footprint has been left behind. Since the dinosaur was top secret, the police don ’ t expect anyone outside the dig could have stolen it.

A T-rex skull can sell for thousand of dollars, and everything is a suspect—including J.J. McCracken, the wner of FunJungle.

Unknowingly, Teddy ’ s old foes, the Barksdale twins, have gotten into trouble with an illegally purchased anaconda, and Teddy ’ s girlfriend Summer wants to mak out who ’ s behind local trade in black market reptiles. The two cases will drag Teddy into more danger and chaos than ever before, in his mystery that ’ s stranger than fiction.

Anothe strong plus for Gibbs' books is his keen ability to describe settings and action sequences in a captivatin way using vocabulary that is rich and filled with words both familiar and more challenging.

In reviews of other Gibbs books, I have oted that occasionally he uses high level words without enough contextual clues to determine meaning, but I decided howeve ind that to be true at all in Tyrannosaurus ... although the word " bespoke " did come up again.

I do.Tyrannosaurus Wrecks is highly recommended for readers of realistic fiction that pushes the envelope of " realistic " and action/adventure mysteries in grades 4-7ish.

Teddy Fitzroy is surprised when his friend Sage reveals that he found a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull on his ranch.

Thi ook begins with Teddy and his friend Xavier catching a internet sensation ( and criminal) called the Zebra Spanker.

he T-Rex skeleton had been stolen, and because Teddy had solved lots of mysteries before this takes place, Sage oes to him for help.The other crime is a suspicious illegal pet store that has been selling dangerous pets to people around Teddy 's hometown.

One thing I like about the FunJungle mysteries, is that they hav always ifficult to solve.
