Overview
Meet Bingo and J miah, raccoon brothers on a mission to save Sugar Man Swamp in this tale from Newbery Honoree Kathi Appelt.
Raccoon brothers Bingo and J miah are the newest recruits of the Official Sugar Man Swamp Scouts. The opportunity to serve the Sugar Man the massive creature who delights in delicious sugar cane and magnanimously rules over the swamp is an honor, and also a big responsibility, since the rest of the swamp critters rely heavily on the intel of these hardworking Scouts.
Twelve-year-old Chap Brayburn is not a member of any such organization. But he loves the swamp something fierce, and he ll do anything to help protect it.
And help is surely needed, because world-class alligator wrestler Jaeger Stitch wants to turn Sugar Man swamp into an Alligator World Wrestling Arena and Theme Park, and the troubles don t end there. There is also a gang of wild feral hogs on the march, headed straight toward them all.
The Scouts are ready. All they have to do is wake up the Sugar Man. Problem is, no one s been able to wake that fellow up in a decade or four
Newbery Honoree and National Book Award finalist Kathi Appelt presents a story of care and conservation, funny as all get out and ripe for reading aloud."

Legendary country music singer Lyle Lovett lends his voice to this tale of two raccoon brothers, Bingo and J’miah, and their quest to awaken the mystical Sugar Man who rules the swamp. Lovett’s voice is smooth as silk and Southern to the core; it is quite simply the perfect fit for this charming tale. His delivery is well paced and his tone that of a wise old seer who knows all and has no trouble teaching others about right and wrong. The result is an absolutely entertaining listening experience that will appeal to listeners of all ages, just as the story itself is a timeless moral lesson about helping those in need. Ages 8–12. An Atheneum hardcover. (July)
