Wahoo Cray lives in a zoo. His father is an animal wrangler, so he's grown up with all manner of gators, snakes, parrots, rats, monkeys, snappers, and more in his backyard. The critters he can handle.  His father is the unpredictable one. When his dad takes a job with a reality TV show called "Expedition Survival!", Wahoo figures he'll have to do a bit of wrangling himself—to keep his dad from killing Derek Badger, the show's boneheaded star, before the shoot is over. But the job keeps getting more complicated. Derek Badger seems to actually believe his PR and insists on using wild animals for his stunts. And Wahoo's acquired a shadow named Tuna—a girl who's sporting a shiner courtesy of her old man and needs a place to hide out. They've only been on location in the Everglades for a day before Derek gets bitten by a bat and goes missing in a storm. Search parties head out and promptly get lost themselves. And then Tuna's dad shows up with a gun . . .It's anyone's guess who will actually survive "Expedition Survival". . . .

This was super fun! I really wish I had read it earlier on in the school year because my Lit Lunch book club would have looooooved it! It‘s top of the list for next year.

My 11 yr old daughter picked this for us to listen to in the car from the Juvenile Fiction section on Libby, so I didn't know anything about what we were listening to. It's great! The story introduced a teen character with a physically abusive father which led to a conversation about abuse between my kids and I. Reading books with my kids has kickstarted numerous talks we never would have had!

I unabashedly LOVE Carl Hiaasen and I love that he does middle grade as well as his adult books. The feel is similar, we're still in the Everglades and nature is as big of a character as his people are! James Van Der Beek has such a great hold on Hiaasen's tone that I was smiling the whole time. A great intro to Hiaasen's work if you're leery but a great story about a wildlife show gone awry in the wild Everglades!

LibrarianRyan This is my favorite Hiaasen book. 7mo
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan I love that he can do middle grade as easily as adult books! I really liked Flush and Skink - No Surrender but my favorites are Nature Girl and 7mo
LibrarianRyan @IamIamIam I have only read his adult short stories. I have a few but haven‘t got to them yet. I still need to read Flush and Scat. But I do love Skink 7mo

Highly entertaining 😊 Love how Hiaasen blends humor, animal rights, environmentalism, and reality tv in this caper. Wahoo, Tuna, and the gang deliver in this treat.

These are all fun reads by Carl Hiassen. Juvenile fiction written with an environmental theme set in Florida.

Second time listening to this. It'll be one of the four books for the Battle of the Books competition in my library region this summer! #loveyourlibrary

Ridiculous & entertaining

Lea Agree! 2y
monkeygirlsmama I've picked this book up off the children's shelf at the library easily half a dozen times, yet I've never read it. Must remedy that. 2y
Christy2318 @monkeygirlsmama I think Hoot is my favorite of his kid's books but I've liked all of them. 2y

This is the sign next to my favorite parking space at #MyLocalLibrary. #riotgrams

Iamlisa22 That sign is probably why that space is always open! Lol 2y
BibliophileMomma I'd park way on the other end of that parking lot from that sign. 🤣🤣 2y

AmandaL @Iamlisa22 @Tiffness83 @britt_brooke @LeahBergen Believe it or not, but I have to get there early if I want that spot! And I've only ever seen a very small alligator there once. 😄 2y
AmandaL @Joybishoptx I'm so happy you caught that. 😜😄 2y

I'm in central Texas so normally it is warm here. But this morning it is 25 degrees & the wind chill is 13. Florida sounds excellent right now. #dreamingofawarmerclimate

Stephanie-Anne ❄️❄️❄️Brrrrrr!!! Yes, this is why we endure 105 degrees in August. Texans aren't built for this. But perfect weather for curling up with our kitties and reading books! 😸📚 2y
Christy2318 @Stephanie-Anne - Absolutely! I'm a summer person. Give me 100 degrees and Schlitterbahn any day! 2y
Stephanie-Anne I live in the town of Schlitterbahn ❤ I drove past it five minutes ago 😉🌊 2y
Christy2318 @Stephanie-Anne - Color me green. I would live there all summer if I lived that close. 🏊🏽‍♀️🏄‍♀️ 2y

The adults are hilarious, the kids are hilarious. It's a great time for anybody who wants a good honest laugh.
