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!
