Roy Eberhardt is recently arrived in Florida. 'Disney World is an armpit compared to Montana', he announces. Roy's family moves a lot so he's used to the new-kid drill -- and to bullies like Dana Matherson. And anyway, it's because of Dana that Roy gets to see the mysterious running boy -- who runs away from the school bus and who has no books, no backpack and, most oddly, no shoes. Sensing a mystery Roy starts to trail the mystery runner -- a chase that will introduce him to many weird Floridian creatures: potty-trained alligators, some cute burrowing owls, a fake-fart champion, a sinister pancake PR man and some snakes with sparkly tails...Suddenly life in Florida is looking up!

This is a wonderful mystery/action book, populated with the author's usual array of quirky characters. It has lots of action, empathetic characters, and a timely story line dealing with corporate ne'er do wells getting their comeuppance. The lean writing provides sufficient detail without bogging the action down. And it's funny!
