SQUIRM is another great read from Newbery Medal winning author, Carl Hiaasen. This book is not one of his adult offerings. Subjects and characters are geared to upper elementary-aged students and above. Carl Hiaasen’s titles have a wonderful sense of place; quirky, very detailed, likable characters; dysfunctional family (and civic) situations; ecological themes; and tongue-in-cheek comedic circumstances. In SQUIRM, I especially liked the descriptions of Montana; the fly-fishing; river travel and the eagles. I’m afraid that I am still not fond of snakes. I am a huge fan of Carl Hiaasen. I would read table saw ads if he wrote them. His adult books have sent me into wild spasms of laughter. He is an excellent, excellent author. Please check out all his tiles - for adults and kids.
