Description

The final book in Eric Walters' series about the zoo next door!

Sarah and Nicholas Fraser are already neck-deep in exotic animals when Mr. McCurdy and Vladimir rescue another truckload of creatures, including two baby kangaroos, a leopard, and a lion.

Sarah wonders how on earth they'll be able to care for the ever-expanding menagerie . . . but that is the least of their problems. Some shady characters are threatening her beloved animals, a bunch of gun-toting crooks are on the lookout to buy illegal wildlife for zoos, and some sort of parrot disease has put Mr. McCurdy's farm under quarantine!

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Tiger Trap:

"In this book, children will learn a little bit about selling and trading exotic animals (alive and dead) for money. Animal facts are incorporated throughout each title, and in Tiger Trap, kangaroos and tigers are the focus." —CM: Canadian Review of Materials
