Stuart Gibbs - 'Panda-Monium' (Launch Party/TIME CHANGE!)

Time change due to flight change!

Stuart Gibbs has many beloved ongoing mystery series: Spy School, FunJungle, and Moon Base Alpha.  He visits us for the first time on Tuesday, April 4, at 4:30 pm for Panda-monium, fourth in the FunJungle series. It's the day Panda-monium is published - time for a launch party! More mystery comes to FunJungle as Li Ping, the zoo's anxiously-awaited panda, goes missing from the truck transporting her.  The FBI is investigating, but Teddy Fitzroy, as FunJungle’s resident sleuth,  gets drawn into the case.  Who's going to be left bamboo-zled?  Ages 8+.

"Gibbs never scrimps on creating belly-laughing hullabaloo ... Interweaving animal facts (pandas can produce 50 pounds of poop per day) into his plot, the author seamlessly inspires compassion and urgency on behalf of species endangered due to lack of habitat and exotic animal trafficking." - Kirkus Review
