This is a great fictional book that takes place in England.  If you like adventurous stories, this is an exciting choice.  It is about a monster named Zilombo that hatches from a mudball.  It is up to Chief Inspector A.J. Zauyamakanda, also known as Mizz Z,  and two determined kids named Jin and Frankie to capture and destroy Zilombo forever.  Guess what?  More bad news.  Zilombo takes Jin and Frankie's little brother Kai, known as Smiler.  They now have to rescue him.  Mizz Z and the kids concoct many plans to apprehend the mudball creature and save their little brother.

Opinion: 

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in three days and had a difficult time putting the book down.  The beginning was suspenseful and mysterious.  Zilombo, the mudball creature, was very well detailed and entertaining.  I hope that the author, S.P. Gates, writes a second book.  I highly recommend this book.  I will definitely read it again!
