from Hoot to Flush

Nice to be settled in one location for more than a day to get a chance to read. One of the galleys I picked up at Texas Library Association was FLUSH by Carl Hiassen. FLUSH is the story of Noah Underwood and his family. When Noah's dad is arrested for sinking a casino boat owned by the scurrilous Dusty Muleman, Noah must discover a way to show that his father's accusations are true. Noah's plan involves a brutish man named Lice Peeking (how much do you love these names?) and his girlfriend Shelly, 34 bottles of food coloring, and a bit of luck. FLUSH is funny and clever with plenty of surprises for readers. Hiassen's follow up to the Newbery Honor winning HOOT proves that his skill as a writer transcends age.
