Carl Hiaasen's young adult and adult novels make perfect audiobooks. His sarcasm and understatement are conveyed so well by the readers, the stories become hysterically funny. In this one, Wahoo Cray is trying to help the family business, animal wrangling, stay afloat after his father is concussed when a frozen iguana falls out of a tree and lands on his head. His mother leaves for China to work as a translator for two months. When a reality show called Expedition Survival wants to use some of their animals, Wahoo and his father end up in an adventure they never bargained for. Derek Badger, the star of the show, projects himself as the ultimate survivalist, but in reality, he's a chubby, incompetent buffoon who must be managed with care. When Derek decides he doesn't want to use the Cray's "tame" animals, the cast sets off for the Everglades with Wahoo and his father along for a wild ride. The situations Derek gets himself into that Wahoo's father then has to get him out of are absurd and highly amusing. Things get even more complicated when a gun-toting drunk becomes part of the story, and when Derek goes missing.
