One of our Books of the Year 2015 - March 15 Book of the Month  Hoot Owl flies through the midnight air quick as a shooting star, wingtip pointing like some kind of avian superhero. When he spots a tasty rabbit he prepares to gobble it up by slipping into disguise as - a carrot! Surprise, surprise, it doesn’t work and the rabbit hops away. Still hungry, Hoot Owl tries some more clever disguises – first attempting fluffy sheep, then ornamental birdbath! At last, ‘eyes glittering like sardines’, he manages to successfully sneak up on a pizza and eats it with his ‘deadly-dangerous beak’. Whether peeking out at his would-be victims, or swooping sideways through the shadows Hoot Owl cuts a very comic figure, and his extravagant similes are hilarious. He’ll have children and adults alike laughing out loud.  ~ Andrea Reece

The Good Book Guide Review

It is night-time and Hoot Owl is hungry, so he disguises himself as a carrot to catch a rabbit. It doesn’t work. He disguises himself again and again, but nothing works. Finally, he disguises himself as a waiter – it works, and he eats pizza – happy Hoot Owl! This sparing and descriptive story is brilliantly accompanied by striking illustrations with dark outlines, bold colours and simple shapes. It is a lovely book that young children will easily relate to. (Ages 2–5)
