Lion Down is about a boy named Teddy Fitzroy who lives at a zoo called FunJungle.
When a mountain lion is accused of murdering a famous dog, Teddy has to step in and help.
With Summer McCracken’s assistance, they gather evidence and avoid trouble to prove the
lion’s innocence only to come to a disturbing conclusion. I enjoyed this book because it has lots
of animal facts and exciting adventures. My favorite part is when Teddy experiments with a fish
shooter in the penguin exhibit. The writing style of this book is extremely entertaining and
funny. I recommend this book to 6th or 7th graders.
