Always heavy on the humor, Andrews' most recent Meg Langslow outing is her most over-the-top adventure to date. By setting the story at a convention for fans of the TV show Porfiria, Queen of the Jungle,
Andrews opens the door to all variety of zany characters--including the show's cast, its die-hard fans, and the vendors who are trying to hawk Porfiria
-related merchandise. Meg's boyfriend, Michael, one of the show's leading hunks, has to sign lots of autographs, leaving Meg plenty of time to snoop around and get into mischief. Although she should be minding her booth, where she peddles merchandise, Meg instead tries to find the killer of Tamerlaine Wycliffe-Jones, the evil leading lady whom everyone calls "The QB"--with Q
for something other than bee.
Adding to the atmosphere are hundreds of monkeys, parrots, and a tiger, brought in to make the hotel more junglelike. Meg remains an imminently likable heroine, and the wacky supporting characters make Parrots
a hoot--perfect for fans of Hess' Maggody series. Jenny McLarinCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
