Listen up. If you’re looking for trouble, you’ve found it. His name’s Jake G. Panda and he’s a wildlife investigator. This hard-boiled bear works at a flophouse for endangered critters called the Last Resort. He’s the hotel snoop. The resident fuzz. It’s his job to keep these unusual guests safe and outta harm’s way.

This hilarious first installment of The Endangered Files is a wild and woolly mystery involving a missing guest, a green bird, and a bunch of double-crossing critters all hot on the trail of The Cursed Dodo. It’s designed to introduce young listeners to the subject of endangered species in a fun and informative way.

So join this tough talking panda detective and a cast of endangered creatures on a globe-trotting audio adventure that will appeal to young and old alike.

Jake G. Panda is a wildlife investigator. A hardboiled Winnie-the-Pooh. He likes bamboo and saving endangered animals. He is the author of The Endangered Files, a mystery series about his misadventures in the protection business.

His partner in crime, the fella who helps write these books because, let’s be honest, it’s not easy typing with big, clunky bear paws, resides somewhere in New England. He has written his fair share of stuff, mostly for the big screen. And some of it has actually been projected. He likes to keep a low profile and lets Jake do all the talking.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jake G. Panda. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

What a fun book to listen to! Jake Panda is a detective in the business of protecting endangered species. He may look like a cuddly panda, but he’s more of a hardboiled detective,  the animal version of Philip Marlowe, Sam Spade, or Mike Hammer. 

This is a fun way to introduce young readers/listeners to endangered species as well a popular genre of fiction. Even though it’s written more for children, adults may enjoy listening to it as well. The author is creative and has a unique sense of humor.

Listening to The Case of the Cursed Dodo is almost like listening to a movie. The one thing that wasn’t necessary, though, was the recap of the previous chapter at the beginning of each chapter. The different voices and the sound effects make it fun to listen to and more exciting than many audiobooks.
