Cody was excited!! First of all, it was summertime and second, Cody was getting to go to the zoo in Treble City. It had been months since he had been there. He loved walking around the zoo and seeing all the animals, but he was unable to find the beasts from Host Isle. He was worried about them. He told Mr. Fletcher, who was the school custodian, about his plans to go back to the zoo to look for them. Mr. Fletcher was also a pirate.
