Summary
Wahoo Cray lives in a zoo. His father is an animal wrangler. 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 to keep his dad from killing Derek Badger, the show's boneheaded star. Things get even more complicated when Wahoo meets Tuna, a girl on the run from her abusive father. And when her dad shows up with a gun, things get downright scary.
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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "You can't knock Hiaasen for inconsistency. In his fourth monosyllabically titled book for young readers (after Hoot, 2002; Flush, 2005; and Scat, 2009), he keeps to the same formula: set up a cast of plucky, lovable Everglades kooks, pit them against greedy, wildlife-hating outsiders and buffoonish swamp villains, and mix it all up with offbeat humor, swift plotting, and heartfelt environmentalism. Here, our heroes come in the form of Mickey and Wahoo Cray, a father-son team of wildlife wranglers who get hired by a hit reality show starring survivalist Derek Badger. It's immediately clear that Badger is nothing more than a well-edited fraud who'd rather bite the head off a bat to spike ratings than paint an honest picture of Florida wildlife, but that's only the beginning of their troubles, which are amped up by a pistol-toting drunk, a scheming producer, and the entirely justified lashing out of the animals themselves. Hiaasen is particularly adept at making the preposterous just barely plausible, and again turns in a finely tuned mix of satire and madcap adventure. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Hiaasen's built a sizable cadre of young fans, and his adult readers will also take notice of a new book for kids.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist"
