The Mystery of the Zorse's Mask by Linda Joy Singleton

The animal sanctuary has a zorse; that's part Zebra/part horse.  Becca has grown very attached to it and hopes she'll be able to keep him.  Unfortunately, someone says he has the paperwork to prove it belongs to his mother and he'll be up to collect it.  Becca is heartbroken...

Albert Whitman & Company and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 1st, so you can grab a copy then.

Leo and Kelsey feel bad for her but don't know how to stop him from claiming the zorse if he legally owns it.  Becca is afraid he's the one who beat the zorse before they rescued it.  After they meet the man, no one is sure of anything anymore.  He's very glib and smooth and has answers for everything.  But are they the truth?

This is dangerous case.  The man is evil and he's determined to take the zorse and the fly mask it wore.  The mask is lost but they recover it.  Then it's lost again.  At the last minute Kelsey speaks to the sister of the man and finds out what they suspected is true.  He is mean with the animals he tries to tame.  How can they stop him?  Even worse, she can't get hold of anyone.  So Kelsey is the one trying to stop the inevitable...

Another exciting adventure with some fun kids learning about friendship and life.  This is a very nice series for middle graders.  I enjoy reading them, too.
