Beppo the Super-Monkey is enjoying an outing at the carnival when the evil Gorilla Grodd ruins everything. The nasty ape is using his super strength to free all the animals from the sideshow. You can imagine the chaos and fear that is running through the crowd! Beppo does everything in his power to distract Grodd, but not before he releases an angry lion! Thankfully the Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, arrive with their monkey Gleek! Are their combined efforts enough to capture the animals, save the people and stop Gorilla Grodd? This action-packed beginning chapter book is full of bright and colorful illustrations that are sure to capture young-reader's attention. The DC Super-Pets series is great for reluctant readers or to read aloud to young children. As an added bonus, each book ends with a glossary page and a joke page. A fabulous new series!
