Two years ago, humorist Carl Hiassen was a Newbery Award Honor winner for Hoot, his eco-thriller for young adults set in Florida. Now Hiassen's got a new novel for younger readers, featuring a spunky brother-sister who out to bust a casino boat owner who's making some illegal discharges. Their adventures bring them in contact with Hiassen's usual cast of hilariously warped characters.
