Description


A shipment of endangered animals to Brassmonkey Bay Zoo ends in a terrible accident, changing the world for young Zookeepers, Pax and Pip Paladin. Ironically, the twist of fate that deprives five rainforest animals of their freedom makes Pip a captive in a hospital room.

This is a fun tale, full of imagination, nefarious villains, precocious critters and an out-of-control possum.
