Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review It seems unlikely that the master of noir-tinged, surrealistic black humor would write a novel for young readers. And yet, there has always been something delightfully juvenile about Hiaasen's imagination; beneath the bent cynicism lurks a distinctly 12-year-old cackle. In this thoroughly engaging tale of how middle schooler Roy Eberhardt, new kid in Coconut Cove, learns to love South Florida, Hiaasen lets his inner kid run rampant, both the subversive side that loves to see grown-ups make fools of themselves and the righteously indignant side, appalled at the mess being made of our planet. The story is full of offbeat humor, buffoonish yet charming supporting characters, and genuinely touching scenes of children enjoying the wildness of nature. He deserves a warm welcome into children's publishing. -- Booklist <br> A wonderful tour-de-force. -- The Boston Globe <br> A rollicking, righteous story. -- The Miami Herald <br> You don't have to be a young adult to enjoy it. -- The New York Times Book Review <br> Yes, it is a hoot. -- The Washington Post Book World <p> From the Hardcover edition.
