Leigh Faunus the animancer stars in ... MONKEY BUSINESS!

But the closer they get to finding the missing animals, the more dangerous it becomes for those close to Leigh. Is cracking this case worth losing what Leigh cares most about in the world?

Illustrated throughout by Nahum Ziersch.

Praise for Star League 5: Monkey Business

'Written in a fast-paced, energetic style, "Star League" is an ideal series for hesitant readers, especially boys. It features plenty of intrigue, fight scenes and evil villains, all presented in a slick narrative style, interspersed with Manga-style illustrations that should also appeal to this demographic. "Star League" will add another burst of energy to the "tween" reader field; the titles are sure to be a hit with parents and young readers, and educators will be happy to have another resource to hand.' Natalie Crawford, Bookseller + Publisher, May 2011
