I have read all of the books in the series but i was sad it was coming to an end. The ending of the book made me cry for 1 week I never had ever cried over a book but this book made me so sad that the scouts left the secret zoo and returned to their normal life. Also, that Mr.Darby had left his job now that the shadowist was gone, but at least he is in peace now with his family I also had no idea that his robe gave him powers so he wont die. Also Noah never told Solana that he liked her which for me was sad. I wish they never had to leave the zoo and their animal friends but overall a really good book but get ready to cry the ending thats it . P.S. Mr.Darby was Fredricks dad and the shadowist was the one who killed the boy :(:(:(:(:(
My daughter, 12, was interested in these books because of the cover. If she decides to read something by a new author, I normally read it too. I love this entire series. The pictures in my imagination are all very real and tells of an amazing story. I really enjoyed the way each character is developed... and the lessons learned. Never give up....you can save the world by being who you are and developing your talents. Friendship is very important and relying on each other and their talents and helping everyone grow together for the good of all...
This volume brings all the plot lines of the Secret Zoo series to its powerful but bittersweet conclusion. I read the series to my kids and it took me a while to get through the last couple chapters because the kids were sobbing and I kept getting choked up too. It's a must read if you've begun the series. Buy it immediately. Yip!
This series has been a wonderful shared experience for my son and me. I read him every word out loud between the ages of seven and 11. We waited for every new release and thrilled to every twist and turn. We will never forget this series and it's suitable and appropriate ending.
