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. When Pax reports on the antics of Chilli Koala and his pals, his twin sister invents a surprise hit about the Gang that inspires the teens and their friends to make a bold plan for a shared planet. This is a fun tale, full of imagination, nefarious villains, precocious critters and an out-of-control possum. "The Great Brassmonkey Jewel Robbery" is the first in a series about the Magic Island Gang, a cast of characters as unforgettable as the young twins who love and learn from them.
