Chomp by Carl Hiaasen, 290 pages, read by Leslie, on 06/11/2013


When the difficult star of the reality television show “Expedition Survival” disappears while filming an episode in the Florida Everglades using animals from the wildlife refuge run by Wahoo Crane’s family, Wahoo and classmate Tuna Gordon set out to find him while avoiding Tuna’s gun-happy father.

While not exactly a survival in the Everglades story, Hiaasen once again focuses on animal conservation, in his own way.  I really enjoyed the story, it had a bit of excitement, a bit of suspense, a little bit of boy meets girl and reality tv. This story made me laugh and I would recommend it to all of my students.
