Gus and Gabby are enjoying lunch in their garden at the zoo when a little boy’s head pops over the wall. He asks the gorillas if he may play on their jungle gym and Gus and Gabby are only too happy to have him join them. Gus and the little boy play together all afternoon until the little boy is so tired, he falls asleep in Gus and Gabby’s little house. When Gus receives a letter from Policeman Moloi saying that a little boy named Molefe has gone missing, it is up to Detective Gus to solve the mystery. And of course he does!
