With a distinct sense of humor and a flare for the unusual, Carl Hiassen has dissected the psyche of South Florida to write several wickedly funny books for both kids and adults. His first book for kids, Hoot, won a Newbery Honor and was later adapted into a movie of the same name. His extensive collection of books for adults are notable for their environmental themes and characters that do justice to the word "eccentric."
Discover the funny side of Florida with #1 New York Times bestselling author Carl Hiaasen in this collection of four books: Hoot, Flush, Scat and Chomp.

My grandson (10) loves them. I also enjoy Hiaasen's writing. Have read most if not all.
These are funny books. They put you on the edge of your seat and keep you interested throughout each book.
These are kids books and are also a fun read for adults. I highly recommend these four books for young readers. Being from Florida myself I can absolutely relate to the locations and the situations within the stories.
Having read most of Hiaasen's adult books, I decided to check out the kiddie versions. Absolutely loved them! Will pass them on to a former student and tell her to pass them on to friends. The stories call attention to real environmental issues while adding a rollicking good story.
