When Wahoo Cray’s dad – a professional animal wrangler – takes a job with a reality TV show called ‘Expedition Survival!’ Wahoo figures he’ll have to do a bit of wrangling himself to keep his dad from killing Derek Badger, the show’s boneheaded and egotistical star. But the job keeps getting more complicated: Derek Badger insists on using wild animals for his stunts; and Wahoo’s acquired a shadow named Tuna – a girl who’s sporting a shiner courtesy of her father and needs a place to hide.
As great as the first three books are, this one is my favorite. Non-stop laughs and non-stop action. This book doesn’t slow down for a second.
If you’re a fan of survival-themed nature shows, you’ll love this story. You get to learn what goes on behind the scenes and just how much they fake. When it comes to a show like Expedition Survival, they fake a lot of stuff. Mostly because their star, Derek Badger, is a complete moron. Derek Badger is pretty much a wannabe Steve Irwin, only worse. I won’t give too much away but reading about how much he stinks was enjoyable for me. Hopefully it will be enjoyable for you too.
Wahoo lives a pretty amazing life. His dad’s a professional animal wrangler and has a whole zoo in his backyard. I love books about kids with not normal lives. But you can probably already tell that from past book posts.
I love Florida’s animal population. It is so vast and a lot of them are mentioned in this story. Here are a few honorable mentioned:
Alligators, Burmese pythons, bobcats and snapping turtles.
