Bestselling author and columnist Carl Hiaasen returns with another hysterical mystery for kids set in Florida's Everglades.
 
Bunny Starch, the most feared biology teacher ever, is missing. She disappeared after a school field trip to Black Vine Swamp. And, to be honest, the kids in her class are relieved.
 
But when the principal tries to tell the students that Mrs. Starch has been called away on a "family emergency," Nick and Marta just don't buy it. No, they figure the class delinquent, Smoke, has something to do with her disappearance.
 
And he does! But not in the way they think. There's a lot more going on in Black Vine Swamp than any one player in this twisted tale can see. And Nick and Marta will have to reckon with an eccentric eco-avenger, a stuffed rat named Chelsea, a wannabe Texas oilman, a singing substitute teacher, and a ticked-off Florida panther before they really begin to see the big picture.
 
That's life in the swamp, kids.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Danny | 2/1/2014

    " A light mystery novel that incorporates ideas of treating the environment right as well as dropping some facts about Florida wildlife. 3 stars for a very nice mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Amanda Fack | 1/29/2014

    " This book is as lively as its cover. Billed as an eco-thriller, Scat intrigues and informs with biological trivia. The characters quickly become real and chapters end with pleasant twists and teases. This would be a 5-star book if the writing had as much sass and style as the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Eileen | 1/25/2014

    " A fun and interesting book. An engaging environmental lesson for middle schoolers without being heavy handed. Great characters, humor and adventure. Nick and Marta wonder what really happened to their terrifying biology teacher, Bunny Starch, who has been missing since a field trip to a Florida swamp. They wind up saving a baby panther and reuniting it with its mama, by standing up for what they know is right. "
