Chomp (Hiaasen, Carl)(2012, paperback)

Regular price $6.00

The Everglades at night are a tangle of waterways and slithering things. A place of moonlight, mystery and menace.

Wahoo’s dad is an animal wrangler (who’s not quite feeling himself, after an unfortunate incident with a frozen iguana) so his boy has grown up with a menagerie, including an alligator named Alice, in the backyard. Even somWahoo doesn’t want to be here - lost in the Everglades - especially with the slightly crazed Derek Badger, self-styled star of the expedition Survival TV show, on the loose along with ‘gators, snakes, bats and a gun-toting father out looking for his runaway daughter.

It’s anyone’s guess who will survive…and who will get chomped!
