book cover of 
Gordon Korman

Griffin and his friends are back in the second book of this awesome series. The trouble starts when Griffin's friend Savannah's pet monkey goes missing. Savannah is frantic and asks Griffin to help her find the missing animal. They search, but to no avail. Then, on a class field trip to a floating zoo, they find that the main attraction is Savannah's monkey! But the zoo owner, Mr. Nastase, says that he bought the monkey, although he won't say from where. Will Griffin and his team of friends get the monkey back quietly? Or will they have to pull a zoobreak to stop Mr. Nasty? I loved the first book in this series and I was hoping that the second book would be just as good or better. I definitely was not disappointed. This book has lots of relatable topics, such as friends who are moving to a new school and being underestimated. I recommend this book for kids ages nine and up. Author: Gordan Korman. Release date: 2009  On a scale of 1 being not so good, and 10 being the very best book I've ever read, I rate this book a 7 1/2.
