Bestselling author and columnist Carl Hiaasen returns with another hysterical mystery for kids set in Florida's Everglades. Bunny Starch, the most feared biology teacher ever, is missing. She disappeared after a school field trip to Black Vine Swamp. And, to be honest, the kids in her class are relieved. But when the principal tries to tell the students that Mrs. Starch has been called away on a "family emergency," Nick and Marta just don't buy it. No, they figure the class delinquent, Smoke, has something to do with her disappearance. And he does! But not in the way they think. There's a lot more going on in Black Vine Swamp than any one player in this twisted tale can see. And Nick and Marta will have to reckon with an eccentric eco-avenger, a stuffed rat named Chelsea, a wannabe Texas oilman, a singing substitute teacher, and a ticked-off Florida panther before they really begin to see the big picture. That's life in the swamp, kids.

Scat is the third in the series of juvenile novels Carl Hiaasen has written, and the craziest thing about the book (not counting the lunatics who populate the good and bad sides of his books) is that it reads exactly like any other Carl Hiaasen book, just without the sex or the deviants, with less v...

Carl Hiaasen's latest is funny, exciting and has wonderful lessons about family and our environment. Ed Asner's audio narration was just ok - maybe it was too many hours watching Mary Tyler Moore - I had a hard time picturing kids with his voice. But the strong story makes up for it. Definitely ...

This is the first book I've read by Carl Hiaasen, and I have to say I was not impressed. I liked some things in the book. For example the character Twilly, who apparently appears in one of Hiaasen's adult mystery books. I liked the character because he was smart, quiet and knew what he wanted out of...
