Everything you see is not always everything. Fire on the background represents the shown part and the hidden part. Bright color flame is the shown part. People can easily see the Bright flame. However, the dark flame is the hidden part where it is hard to see. People only see the shown part and tell what they think and figured out. However, in many other situations, only by looking at the shown part would not able to make you solve the problem. Mostly the dark part tells the truth but people do not want to find the dark side because it is hard to find.

In Scat written by Carl Hiaasen, there was a terrible accident. There was a fire made by someone when students were having a field trip. The fire went off thankfully however; one of the teacher was missing. Police interview every single students and found nothing. Student nicknamed Smoke was the most suspected criminal. He had many accident related with fire. Everyone suspected Smoke. Theme of this book is that everything you see is not always everything. Students gathered the information they have seen and guessed who made the fire. However, Smoke had nothing to do with the accident. Two students went deeper with the fire incident and found the dark part of the issue. Those two found out that it wasn’t Smoke who made the fire. It was the people who wanted the panther. At the end people who made the fire were arrested.

Connect with Nick Waters

People are lot more brave when they are up to something they are curious about. Nick Waters in the book SCAT by Carl Hiaasen he is a coward. “Nick’s chin dropped to his chest. If he answered yes, he’d risk making a mortal enemy of Smoke. If he answered no, Mrs. Starch would pick on him mercilessly for the risk of the school year” (Hiaasen 9). Nick is scared to share his own opinion when teacher is asking him how he feels because Nick thinks that something horrible would happen to him. “Nick wasn’t sure if sneaking into Mrs. Starch’s house was the bravest thing he’d ever done, or the dumbest” (135). Nick even though he is a coward who can’t even share is own thoughts he is sneaking in to his scarcest teacher. He is risking his “life” to get some evidence from the mystery event that happened to Mrs. Starch.

Nick Waters have lots of similar part with me. By the way my name is Nick Choi. When I was young I was afraid of my house. Every time I see some place dark I always freak out and run to my dad. But one day with my cousin I wanted to explore my house. It was a huge house for a baby. My cousin and I was really closed and we wanted to go to the dark place and find something interesting if can. One hand we were holding each other and on other hand we were holding a weapons. My point is that we are brave when we are into something and want to explore something.

It Is Always Good To Have Curiosity?

In the Black Vine Swamp

Hammering on a dead stump

A piercing cry

Rise from the vines

Cry

Come panther

Among the tree trunks

Running

Nick excited

But shaking

(Hiaasen 33)

Curiosity. Is it a good thing? This found poem I made from the book Scat written by Carl Hiaasen describes the characteristics of the character named Nick Waters. He is a boy who likes a girl named Marta, and he is able to “sacrifice” himself for her. The poem shows the dark setting by using the words black, dead, piercing, cry and shaking. These words have a negative connotation and tell how dark the situation is in the book. “Some of the kids got spooked, but Nick was excited. He thought he knew what kind of animal they’d heard” (Hiaasen 33). Unlike others, Nick is excited, calm and curious. He would go for the creature no matter how dangerous it could be. This shows he becomes the bravest kid when he is up to something that he is interested in. The poem and the quote describe the characteristic of Nick Waters. He is brave, calm and has lots of curiosity.
