The Lovereading4Kids comment

An hilarious, edge-of-your seat read. Animal lovers everywhere will love this great story about dangerous creatures which also gives a behind the scenes look at how the worst TV shows are made. Wahoo’s Dad has a great collection of animals which he lets out for work in films and TV. Dad knows everything there is to know about his creatures and Wahoo is pretty skilled too. When they are approached by a huge hit TV show to provide some dangerous creatures they agree – on their own terms. But neither Wahoo nor Dad had accounted for how you deal with a man like Derek Badger, the vain front-man of the show. Hilarious things happen as Derek tries his luck against several animals – including wrestling with an alligator – and there are no prizes for guessing who gets chomped!

Synopsis

Chomp by Carl Hiaasen

Wahoo Cray has grown up with a zoo in his backyard - alligators, snakes, rats, monkeys, parrots, but it's his dad who's the unpredictable critter. When his dad takes a job with a reality TV show called Expedition Survival, Wahoo figures he'll have to do a bit of wrangling himself to keep his dad from killing the show's inept star Derek Badger, who insists on using real wild animals for his stunts. And Wahoo's acquired a shadow named Tuna, a girl who's sporting a shiner courtesy of her old man and needs a place to hide out. They've only been on location in the Everglades for a day before Derek gets bitten by a bat and goes missing in a storm. Search parties promptly get lost themselves. And Tuna's dad shows up with a gun...It's anyone's guess who will actually survive Expedition Survival!

Reviews

Satire is a powerful weapon in the hands of an expert , and you're more likely to laugh out loud than cry during this book because the situations the characters get themselves into are so utterly off-the-wall... well worth a look. THE BOOK BAG
