Recommends it for: kids who like animals and mystery
It's been years since I last read an Animal Ark book, so I thought I'd reread this one just for fun. It's a short book and it has likable, sweet characters and a decent plot, but there's little in the way of actual conflict and the writing is a little simplistic. There is definitely supernatural and mystery elements(but they're really not scary), and there are a couple of nice surprises at the end.
I thought it was a cute, light book, but insubstantial compared even to many other children's boo

Loved this series when I was younger. Still a huge animal lover and would like to read the rest of this series!
