SummaryAdd a Summary
The characters from Korman's Swindle (Scholastic, 2008) are reunited in this action-packed story. Eleven-year-old Savannah Drysdale's pet monkey has gone missing, and Savannah is sure that Cleo was stolen. On a class field trip aboard a floating animal zoo, she is convinced that the monkey in one of the exhibits is her pet. She enlists the help of her friend Griffin, known as the "Man With a Plan," to execute a zoo break. But, as Griffin knows, what looks good on paper doesn't always turn out quite as planned, especially when furry creatures are involved, and the rescuers end up with a lot more than they bargained for. Although the novel is heavy on plot and includes some very predictable bad guys, Korman manages to involve readers in the adventures of some likable young people who believe that they need to act, and not wait for adults to save the day. A satisfying read.—Kathy Kirchoefer
