Description


Twelve-year-old Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt Fitzroy has murder on his hands and trouble on his tail. He believes that Henry, the hippopotamus at the brand-new FunJungle, has been murdered. The zoo’s top brass claim the hippo went belly up the natural way, but Teddy and his feisty friend Summer McCraken have other ideas. Could the culprit be FunJungle’s animal-hating head of operations? Or is it FunJungle’s owner—Summer’s dad—a man who is much more concerned about money than animal welfare? The deeper Teddy and Summer dig, the more danger they’re in—because when it comes to hippo homicide, the truth can’t be caged!

This book is an EPIC, to be sure! It spans millennia, taking you through the life of a so-called "lesser goddess", Circe, who we come to know intimately and to love dearly. Circe's story is a quiet one, yet a righteously triumphant redemption story, as she comes into her own power and owns the world as her own. You find yourself riveted, rooting for Circe’s successes and growing power at every turn. Madeline Miller's words read like poetry, every sentence a living thing in itself, full of so much...Oh, what a true PLEASURE to read!!
