This Newbery Honor-winning, hilarious Floridian adventure involves new kids, bullies, alligators, eco-warriors, pancakes, pint-sized owls, and more. A New York Times bestseller!
Everybody loves Mother Paula’s pancakes. Everybody, that is, except the colony of cute but endangered owls that live on the building site of the new restaurant. Can the awkward new kid and his feral friend prank the pancake people out of town? Or is the owls’ fate cemented in pancake batter?
“A wonderful tour de-force.” —The Boston Globe
“A rollicking, righteous story.” —The Miami Herald
“Yes, it is a hoot.”—The Washington Post
"With a Florida setting and pro-environment, anti-development message, Hiaasen returns to familiar turf for his first novel for young readers," wrote PW. "Several suspenseful scenes, along with dollops of humor, help make this quite a hoot indeed." Ages 10-up.

It’s sorta a hoot, I mean it was good in the beginning, but it was not very good in the middle, and I did not quite understand the concept in the middle, but good beginning overall. I am presently reading Scat, and it is good so far I cannot wait to read more!!!!!!😀😃😀😁🙂
Hoot is a funny book for kids that teaches a life lesson. If somethings not right, step in and do something about it!!
Great for School
