APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With the ease of a gifted teacher at story time, Chad Lowe brings to life Carl Hiaasen's first young adult novel, about the people and animals who live in the fictional Florida town of Coconut Cove. The actor gives distinct voices to each of the book’s quirky characters—from adventurous Roy Eberhardt (Trace Middle School’s newest and most curious student) to Leroy "Curly" Branitt, the short-tempered foreman of a construction site threatening an endangered owl colony. A noble and inspiring tale of friendship, environmentalism, facing adversity, and standing up for what’s right, Hoot is also a thrilling, often hilarious adventure.
