Review:

"An animal wrangler named Mickey Cray and his son, Wahoo, whose Florida home and yard house alligators, snakes, and other wildlife, reluctantly take on the job of supplying animals for a reality television show called Expedition Survival! — the host of which, Derek Badger, is actually a dimwitted fraud. Contrasting with amusing scenes of Badger's less-than-successful tangles with wildlife is a tense plot about Jared — the abusive father of Wahoo's friend Tuna — who comes to the Everglades with a gun looking for his daughter. But it all has a happy ending, thanks to some heroics from an unlikely source. Narrator James Van Der Beek strikes exactly the right note in his narration: a dry, ironic delivery that lets both the humorous and tense moments play out effectively. He also creates distinctive character voices, particularly memorable are his renditions of Derek (who switches from a petulant American accent to a cheery, fake-Australian accent for the television camera) and the gravelly, menacing Jared. This is an entertaining audio romp with an enjoyable mix of comedy and action. Ages 10 — up. A Knopf hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
