HOOT by Carl Hiaasen

This week's Junior Book Club will be reviewing 'Hoot', a very entertaining story about Roy who meets some interesting new people when he moves to Florida. 

There's Dana, the boy that likes to beat him up on the school bus. There's Beatrice, who likes to beat up Dana. And then there's the mysterious boy Roy has notice running around the town with now shoes on.

One day Roy decides to follow the shoeless runner and ends up in the middle of a whole heap of drama centred around pancakes and miniature owls!

'Hoot' reads like any other fiction bestseller; sometimes I forgot I was reading a children's book! It's funny, it's engaging, it's gripping.

It's a hoot!

Hopefully the Junior Book Club will be as impressed as me!

The Village Books Junior Book Clubs start back this Monday the 16th at 4.30pm. The first group back will be discussing 'Northern Lights' by Philip Pullman and 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman. 

'Northern Lights' is one of our favourite books of all time! Lets hope that the group enjoyed it just as much as us and didn't just watch the movie - which is possibly one of the worst films of all time! 

'Once' is a similar kind of story to 'The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas'. Follow Felix, a young Jewish orphan as he journeys across Nazi occupied Poland in search of family. It is beautifully written, taking great care and innocence whilst tackling such a tale of horror. We highly recommend it for children aged 10 and over.
