Publisher's Summary

Mrs. Bunny Starch, the most feared biology teacher ever, was last seen during a field trip to Black Vine Swamp. The school's headmaster and the police seem to have accepted the sketchy, unsigned note explaining that her absence is due to a family emergency. Theres no real evidence of foul play. But still, Nick and Marta don't buy it. Something weird is definitely going on.

Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald and is the author of many best-selling titles, including Sick Puppy, Nature Girl, and The Downhill Lie.

    "Another great story by Hiaasen!"

    As always, Carl Hiaasen incorporates environmental education with an entertaining story. Great for all ages!

    "Fantastic story and narration!"

    My daughter and I loved this delightful story and the narration! I know several reviews had issues with the narration but we had no problems understanding anything and found the different character voices hilarious!

    Story
    "Disappointed"

    Hiaasen has put together another of his pro-environment stories, this one for young people. A crotchety teacher, two good students, a young alleged arsonist, and a monkeywrencher get together to save an endangered panther, and thwart an illegal drilling scheme. If you are familiar w the adult Hiaasen offerings, you know what they're like.

    We have a few anxious moments, including whether a national guardsman injured in the Middle East is going to make it, but overall nothing too scary for the kids. A good save the environment story.

    The problem is the narrator. Who doesn't love Ed Asner? I mean, he's Mr Grant, right? Unfortunately, it feels like he's phoning this one in. His gruff "reading" (not acting) style of presenting the story is, quite frankly, boring. There is little color to the performance. It is just endlessly flat. I ended up increasing the narration speed to 2x, just to finish the story. I don't want to listen to the other young person Hiaasen books, if they are like this. Sad.
