Poached is about a twelve year old boy named Teddy. Vance is the school bully who is always getting Teddy into trouble with FunJungle. So when Kazoo the Koala went missing, all the evidence pointed to Teddy. Kazoo has no food. The koala-napper took no food with him. Teddy has to find the real criminal and bring Kazoo back before it’s too late and Kazoo dies from hunger.
Poached was an extremely interesting book and very mysterious. It was also funny. One thing I did not like were the pranks. Some people might like them, but I think it teaches children to actually do the pranks on people, and that would get them into trouble like it did with Teddy. This book also teaches children to stand up to bullies if they were being bullied. I think this book would be a poor choice for children under ten.
