School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Gordon Korman reprises the characters he wrote with such success in Swindle (2008) in this action-packed, humorous sequel (2009, both Scholastic). Savannah, 11, is devastated when her beloved monkey, Cleo, is kidnapped and placed in a stinking, floating zoo run by two shysters. Her friend Griffin assembles a team (reminiscent of Mission Impossible) to get the creature out of her prison. Each member of the group brings their special talent: Ben can fit into small spaces, Pitch can climb anything, Logan excels at acting, and Melissa is the resident computer whiz. After rescuing Cleo, the team decides to liberate all the animals and then must break into the Long Island Zoo to ensure proper homes for them. Jonathan Todd Ross creates s distinct voice for each character and the pace zips along to a satisfying conclusion. Fans of the first book will clamor for this sequel, but it also easily stands alone.-Tricia Melgaard, Centennial Middle School, Broken Arrow, OK (c) Copyright 2010.

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Gordon Korman was born in Montreal, Canada on October 23, 1963. When his 7th-grade English teacher told the class they could have 45 minutes a day for four months to work on a story of their choice, Korman began This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall. He was also the class monitor for the Scholastic TAB Book Club, so he sent his novel to the address on the TAB flyer, and a few days after his 14th birthday, he had a book contract with Scholastic. <p> By the time he graduated from high school, he had published five other novels and several articles for Canadian newspapers. He received a BFA degree from New York University with a major in Dramatic Writing and a minor in Film and TV. He has written over 75 books for children and young adults including the Swindle series, The Juvie Three, and two books of poetry written by the fictional character Jeremy Bloom. <p> (Bowker Author Biography)
