Author Info
Carl Hiaasen
Carl Hiaasen graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism in 1974 and began writing for the Miami Herald in 1976. Since then he has earned a stellar reputation as an investigative reporter, uncovering political corruption, local conspiracies, and drug dealing in South Florida. Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize numerous times for his probing column in the Herald, Hiaasen turned to writing mysteries with "Tourist Season", his debut novel published in 1986. He has continued to write a series of darkly comic novels set in his native Florida, including "Strip Tease", which was made into a film starring Demi Moore and Burt Reynolds. Hiaasen has also dabbled in songwriting, co-writing two songs on Warren Zevon's album "Mutineer".
"Humorous adventure tales just don't get any more wacked...or fun to read than this." (starred review)
"The author manages to sustain a comedic mood with the inept survivalist and the budding romance between two fish-named youngsters while simultaneously developing an underlying sense of tension. Mystery, action, humor, and exotic animals and settings, all tied together by a writer with an exceptional grasp of language, makes this a sure hit with any mystery-loving readers." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Carl Hiaasen, known for his zany plots, has produced another wacky middle grade novel with CHOMP. Raised by a talented wild animal wrangler, Wahoo Cray is used to spending time with monkeys, gators, snakes, and other dangerous creatures. When his father is hired to consult on a reality show called "Expedition Survival!," their lives get much more complicated. Not only is the star, Derek Badger, obsessed with his own press, but he actually disappears on set. At the same time, Wahoo is trying to keep his dad from doing something stupid, he has to help Tina, a classmate who's father is abusive. When absolutely everything goes wrong on the set in the Everglades, Wahoo has to find a way to keep them all alive. Carl Hiaasen is the author of numerous popular adult mysteries, as well as Newbery Honor-winner FLUSH.
