Panda-monium, Stuart Gibbs
Li Ping the panda has been kidnapped. FunJungle is all in a frenzy, awaiting the arrival of its most thrilling animal yet - a rare and very expensive giant panda that the zoo went to enormous lengths to secure. But when the truck transporting Li Ping shows up, its precious cargo has vanished into thin air.
The FBI steps in to investigate, and middle school sleuth Teddy Fitzroy is happy to leave the job in their (supposedly) capable hands. After all, FunJungle has never encountered a crime this serious. But when someone blackmails Teddy into working the case, his involvement in this mystery is anything but black-and-white.
