Anyone familiar with Carl Hiaasen’s satirical wit and quirky characters knows his vision of southern Florida is a unique one. Now, the talented best-selling author writes his first book geared toward children, and this hilarious ecological adventure story will delight readers both young and old.
Roy is the new kid in a suburban Florida school, and along with the trials of making new friends and dodging the class bully, he finds himself caught up in a mystery with an eco-avenging homeless boy nicknamed Mullet Fingers. Their fight to prevent a new pancake house from destroying the home of a family of owls turns them into secret saboteurs. But to save the owls they’ll have to contend with baby alligators in the port-o-johns, a sinister pancake PR man, and several poisonous snakes with unnaturally sparkling tails. People raves, Hoot is “like The Hardy Boys with better jokes.”
