We listened to this as a family with 10 and 8 y/o kids on a road trip to florida! This was the PERFECT book to listen to on the way to florida! Hiaasen knows so much about florida's natural fauna and animals, we learned a bunch about the everglades. The kid characters are strong, but not over the top. There are some tough issues, mainly a child character being physically abused by her father, but it is handled well. Also, very good narrator! We love Hoot by Hiaasen aswell!
my 10y/o has listened to this many times and each time tells me how good it is.
Boring, taking forever to get to any real plot. Trying to decide if I will even listen to the last part.
The narrator mispronounces the name of the game Kubb. He calls it "cub", the name of the game rhymes with tube. This distracted me from an otherwise interesting story.
