Carl Hiaasen – Scat

(Publisher’s Weekly, Mar. 9)

Scat, Carl Hiaasen‘s latest novel, takes readers into the Florida Everglades, where crooked developers want to drill for oil in a swamp that’s home to an endangered Florida panther.  In an interview with Children’s Bookshelf, the author commented on the strength of YA fiction sales, at a time when sales of adult books are flat or worse.  “It would have never have occurred to me that with the iPods and Wii and Xboxes and all the other distractions kids have, that there would be this tremendous makret for the kind of books I write,” Hiaasen said.  “I think it shows you kids are insatiable in the same way I was when i was a kid.  If you can tap into that you’ll have readers for life.”
