I liked this book because it was funny. This book is a mystery. I like mysteries because you never know who could be the murderer or stealer, and I like learning about the suspects. The setting of Belly Up was in the zoo. In the zoo, they were feeding the zoo animals things from the trash. The animals became sick and were dying. This taught me to take care of zoo animals and feed them the right kind of food. If you like funny, mystery books and books with animals, then you would like this book!
