Noah and Abbey's environmentalist father is in trouble again-this time for sinking a casino boat that was dumping waste into the water. But without evidence, he is sent to jail. Noah and Abbey set out to prove that their father is right, but first they must deal with quite a few complicated adults and suspenseful situations. "Hiaasen's second novel exhibits some of the same elements found in his 2003 Newbery Honor Book [Hoot]: Florida local color, oddball adults . and a delightful quirkiness."-Booklist

"Carl Hiaasen's second novel for young readers is filled with his usual quirky characters, environmental themes, and Florida landscapes. Hiaasen's books translate well to audio with his short sentences and dialogue-driven plots. Noah's dad is so mad that the Coral Queen casino boat is dumping raw sewage into the waters of the Florida Keys that he sinks it. When the boat is refloated and his Dad goes to jail, Noah aims to succeed where his father failed. Michael Welch's youthful voice captures that combination of confidence and bewilderment that characterizes a teenager, and his timing is impeccable. This production just rips along--children and adults alike will get a kick out of it. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
