Carl Hiaasen books are great!!!


an amazing story about a mean teacher a kid and a panther in the Florida Everglades

Hated teacher Helped

Can't believe a teacher who is hated in a school gets rescued. Plus the teacher had a pet FLORIDA PANTHER

Great for adults

As a fan of Hiaasen, this was the first youth book of his that I read. I enjoyed it just as much as his adult books! If you're a fan, this is a must!

great book

Another Big Hit for Hiaasen

This book takes you where no one else did. Mixing humor with something a bit more serious like endangered wildlife. Who's side are you on is what Hiaasen asks you like he switches the perspective every so often. Ever read Flush or Hoot? if you like those books you'll love this one!


This book is really good, I really like the part where Nick and Marta find out where their teacher is.



The best book ever!!!

I have always loved Carl Hiaasen's book. I started reading Hoot then I went onto Flush an I cant wait to read Scat.
