Review: I am one hundred fifty percent a Carl Hiaasen fan and will definitely be picking up the rest of his books. This particular story had it all, humor, drama, excitement and adventure. His writing is superb and his characters come alive, jumping right off the page to dance around in the readers head. There is no doubt he is one of the greatest middle grade/children’s writers of all time. ‘Chomp’ takes place primarily in the Florida Everglades, the story of Mickey Cray and his son Wahoo is one you will fall in love with. After deciding to take on a job with a popular wildlife television show in which their animals will be featured the Cray’s end up in far more of an adventure than they bargained for. 

Working for the ridiculously insane Derek Badger, they come across some real animals that want to take a bit out of him. With a twist and surprise ending you’ll never suspect, ‘Chomp’ is a book you’ll want to read over and over again and your kids will love it too! 

I recommend this title highly and any kid that loves adventure, excitement and no mushy stuff in a book will definitely enjoy this wonderfully written story!
