Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs

Rating 4

Reviewed by Liz, grade 8

Belly Up is a book about a 12 year old boy, a hippo, and a zoo.  A mean hippo named Henrey is the mascot of the best zoo in the world called Funland.  One day while Teedy was in Hippo River, Henery died and went belly up.  Just a day before Henery seemed perfectly fine and healthy.  When the zoo's vet hears about this, he wants to perform an autopsy on Henery.  Teddy knows that he won't be allowed in the room when the autopsy is being performed so he decides to sneek in instead.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries and adventures.
