Lion Down (Paperback) (Signed Copy)
For once, operations at the enormous zoo/theme park appear to be running smoothly (except for the occasional herring-related mishap in the penguin exhibit) and Teddy Fitzroy is finally able to give detective work a rest. But then a local lion is accused of killing a famous dog—and the dog’s owner, an inflammatory radio host, goes on a crusade to have the cat declared a nuisance so it can be hunted. But it looks like the lion might have been framed, and a renegade animal activist wants Teddy and Summer to help prove it. Soon, Teddy finds himself wrapped up in the middle of his most bizarre, hilarious, and dangerous case yet.
A beautiful start to new friends and a new early chapter book series. In a tale reminiscent of Cordory's adventures, Ivy the doll discovers the magic of making new memories with children and fellow book buddy toys. The story balances a modern family with the classic-feeling black and white illustrations.
