From the very first chapter Andrews had me laughing out loud. Meg Langslow and her fiance Michael are finally moving into the house they bought together, when she comes home to penguins in the basement, courtesy of her father. It seems the local zoo has gone bankrupt and while the owner is trying to raise money to save it, Meg's dad has generously agreed to temporarily take on the penguins, llamas, camels, hyenas and anything else, all at her farmhouse of course. In the process of digging out a pond in the basement for the penguins, he unearths a body. It's another hilarious romp as Meg and Michael try to cope with the menagerie and solve the murder, while planning a family party to celebrate their engagement, which they secretly plan to sneak away from to elope. Andrews gets funnier and funnier with each addition to the series.
If you enjoy comical books with quirky characters, this book is for you. I have enjoyed reading every book in this series. Of books 1-10, I think this book is the best so far.
