Coneixement comú



This one wasn't as good as some of the other "Skink" stories, imho. That said, however, it was still a good read with great characters and an engaging plot. I have yet to find a bad Hiaasen book, so even though I thought it wasn't as good as some of the others, I still enjoyed it tremendously.

Good tale! I think it would be a good one for boys. Not the usual hilarity of Carl Hiaasen, but an engaging page turner. Great to see the kids outwit the baddies!

Thought it was going to be just another cozy mystery, but it was very edgy. I was pleasantly surprised on how much I liked this book.

Read along with my 5th grader. I didn’t realize until recently that Hiaasen wrote middle school level books. I’ve always found his humorous writing style entertaining and have enjoyed his adult books for a good quick read. This was no different. The story is entertaining and insightful with all the wit and humor you can find in his adult books. Both my son and I enjoyed reading this.
