When I bought this story and then heard the "Audible Kids" intro I thought I'd really screwed up but; NO It's great! Just cut out the swearing and sex and it's just like any other Hiaasen tale; riveting, funny and satisfying with no loose ends! It was great!

This is an sort of sweet mystery for kids between the ages of 9 and maybe 12. It lacks Hiassen's expected good humor, but it's not dark. Unfortunately Ed Asner kept intruding as, well, Ed Asner. His way familiar voice was both a distraction from time to time, and worse seemed implausible as the voice of a young girl heroine of the piece. I'm thinking that if you've got a car ride ahead with a young family, well this won't insult the adults and will keep the kids amused as they dave endangered species against the threat of mean, bad, sinister, business men (of course... who else can be cast a villains in this PC world, eh?) . Otherwise... skip it.

What made the experience of listening to Scat the most enjoyable?
Our whole family (aged from 8 to 48) enjoys Carl Haisson books, with their warm and resourceful child characters acting out funny eco-thrillers. Even though the story is well-paced and aventurous both my husband and I immediately felt sleepy whenever we started listening to this audio book- the narrator's voice is the most soporific I have ever heard- better than a fat whisky/ camomile tea/ relaxation tape at bedtime but a liability on a road trip.
What three words best describe Edward Asner’s performance?
Soporific, soporific, soporific

It was OK, but it took a long time to get interesting. It just had a very slow start. I did enjoy it though.
