One of my favorite Hiaasen books in a long time. Completely over the top but just what I needed right now.

Another great Hiaasen novel! Bunny Starch, disliked and feared Biology teacher at Truman private school has disappeared after an arson set a fire in the swamp where the class went for a field trip. A young loner nicknamed Smoke is missing. After a recent altercation with Mrs. Starch and with a history of arson, things do not look good for this young man. But Nick and Marta, Smoke's classmates, do not believe Smoke capable of foul play - well at least Nick doesn't. But there is also the matter of an oil company, an eco-warrior, and an endangered panther to contend with. And where is Mrs. Starch? Filled with great characters, descriptive scenery and a plot that twists and turns like a one lane country road, Scat is an enjoyable read that you will savor to the end.… (mais)

Very cute book and not just for younger readers! A father of two precocious children gets in trouble for challenging an environmental scofflaw in a very unconventional manner. The children work in secret to find a way to bail out their father and put an end to the dangerous pollution that launched the whole crisis while their mom tries to keep everyone out of trouble and keep her family together. Cleverly written, good characters and not in the least bit sugar-coated or overly sentimental.
