"...never lets the formula get in his way; the story is full of offbeat humor, buffoonish yet charming supporting characters, and genuinely touching scenes of children enjoying the wildness of nature." Booklist

Unfortunately, Roy's first acquaintance in Florida is Dana
Matherson, a well-known bully. Then again, if Dana hadn't
been sinking his thumbs into Roy's temples and mashing his
face against the school-bus window, Roy might never have
spotted the running boy. And the running boy is intriguing:
he was running away from the school bus, carried no books,
and--here's the odd part--wore no shoes. Sensing a mystery,
Roy sets himself on the boy's trail. The chase introduces
him to potty-trained alligators, a fake-fart champion, some
burrowing owls, a renegade eco-avenger, and several
extremely poisonous snakes with unnaturally sparkling tails.
Roy has most definitely arrived in Carl Hiaasen's Florida.
