Chomp by Carl Hiassen
I am Benny. I am in 7th grade and love to read. Some of my other hobbies include soccer, skiing cooking and playing cards.
Wahoo Cray and his dad, Mickey, love to catch wild animals from the Florida Everglades. They keep the animals in their own backyard and make money by training them to appear on television. Mickey hasn’t been working due to a concussion from a frozen iguana that fell from a tree and hit him on the head. Wahoo does a lot of work when it comes to taking care of all their animals, and agrees to take a job renting out animals for a reality TV show called “Expedition Survival.”
The star of the show, Derek Badger, has been living it up in Paris but flies into Florida for an Everglades episode. It turns out that Derek Badger is a total fake and has a bunch of people making sure he is safe with the animals even though the animals wouldn’t hurt a fly. However, when Derek Badger is done with his shots he gets flown to a 5-star hotel where he lives like a king.
Wahoo and his dad also meet a girl in a Walmart parking lot named Tuna. Her dad is a heavy alcoholic and punches his own daughter. They take her in as one of there is a little romantic story with Tuna and Wahoo. If you want an action-packed adventure book with a lot of comedy blended in, I would strongly recommend the book Chomp by Carl Hiassen.
