The Secret Zoo

21 Feb

JacketMy sister actually suggested this book to me, I’m not sure how she found it, but she thought it might be something to add to our collection – and it definitely is!  The Secret Zoo by Bryan Chick is the first in an adventure series that will appeal to both boys and girls – but especially to those kids who love animals!  Currently there are five books in the series and I’m sure more are in the works.  It’s such a quick read and makes the perfect suggestion for older elementary school age children.

Noah’s sister has gone missing and for weeks, no one knows where she is, but when Noah starts gathering clues that lead him to the Clarksville Zoo, he knows that he must do what ever it takes to find his sister.  With the help of his best friends Ella and Richie, Noah finds himself in an unbelievable place filled with animals from around the world, but is it where his sister is?  He’s going to find out.

As I said, this is a very quick read filled with adventure from beginning to end and will make even the most reluctant readers flip the pages to find out what happens.  And the ending left enough intrigue for me to want to find out what happens in the next book.  If you have an animal lover looking for a new series… this is it.
