    This book is extraordinarily okay It pummels you with okayness The characters Okay The plot Okay The humor Okay The writing A okay Hiassen is masterful in the way he never goes astray, never veers into good, never dips into bad it s a stunning, tour de force of okay If you set out to write a book that was just okay enough to keep reading, but not so good that you actually started to like it, this would be it It honestly couldn t have been okay if it tried Would I recommend it Meh Would I warn you off of it Meh Do you see the level of ambivalence this okay book inspires It s okayosity is off the charts I liked it a perfectly okay amount What else can I say I m honestly surprised I ve said this much If you re looking for a book that s is all kinds of okay, then this is the book for you It won t disappoint you It won t excite you You ll barely know you re reading it and may not even notice once it s done It s okay.

    I thought I was too old for Hoot s message but Carl Hiassen proved me wrong Hoot, with it s wonderfully developed array of the most interesting characters I ve seen since The Importance of Being Earnest, goes beyond the story of Roy Edberhart if that s how you spell it , Mullet Fingers, and Beatrice Leep in their struggle against the building of a Mother Paula s Pancake house Behind it s lighthearted and often joking facade the book is a window into the rapid destruction of Florida wildlife in order to make room for civilization and pancake houses This book is just a reminder that as Paper Towns spring up the animals are forced to flee or die Recommended for anyone who liked Paper Towns by John Green or The Lorax by Dr Seuss I don t think you can ever be too old for this book.

    I give thanks for authors like Carl Hiaasen who write stories that strengthen our youth s conscience and awareness of environmental matters Hoot was Mr Hiaasen s children s book debut, and although it appears targeted for the middle grade children s crowd, I as an adult thoroughly enjoyed it I must note though that I read this with my eleven year old and his enthusiasm was pretty contagious He is slowly but surely devouring each of Mr Hiaasen s novels so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and see what it s all about.The main plot of Hoot is an ecological thriller mystery of sorts centering on endangered burrowing owls The middle school aged characters are great and I enjoyed seeing young perspectives about adults, rules laws, and the environment in general I can see why my son loves this author Apparently this title has also been adapted to film, so I m sure I ll be watching it soonpossibly even tonight if my son has his way LOL.As with most of the books I enjoy, I can t help but research a bit on either the author or the subject matter Reading just inspires me to learn After I read HERE about these endangered creatures, my appreciation soared for Mr Hiaasen and his decision to increase awareness Here s what I learned about burrowing owls and their struggle to survive The burrowing owl is federally protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act in the United States, Canada and Mexico The greatest threat to burrowing owls is habitat destruction and degradation caused primarily by land development and ground squirrel prairie dog control measures Despite their protected status, burrowing owls are often displaced and their burrows destroyed during the development process Insert sad face I mean, look at these little guysIf you know any elementary or middle school aged kids, recommend Mr Hiaasen to themor better yet, gift them one of his books for young readers You will not only be encouraging literacy but you ll also be giving the gift of positive ecological and environmental perspective at the perfect age Do it My favorite quote Just because something is legal doesn t automatically make it right Carl Hiaasen s collection for young audiences include the following standalone novels as of May 2015

    Hoot by Carl Hiaasenis a coming of age story that I adored It has everything a kid could relate to bullies, not fitting in, wanting to help, a noble cause, friendship, and family The best part was the cute owls and the way the author brought the wonderful characters to life I understand it is a movie I will have to see it now It may have been a preteen book but I enjoyed every moment

    About what you would expect from a cheesy, feel good YA novel I probably would have rated it higher if I was a teen some YA translates well to adults, not really so much here But, it wasn t bad and I can definitely see myself recommending it to my kids when they are teenagers.

    The following review is by my son and padawan Liam I give HOOT 4 and a half stars I liked how there was a mysterious running boy called Mullet Fingers I liked how Mullet Fingers and Beatrice are related I like how Roy tricked Dana into thinking there were cigarettes in a trailer and that he stepped in the mouse traps.I disliked that the ending kind of left you hanging I also didn t like that the story is called Hoot and you don t figure out the title until the very end.I would definitely recommend this book to other kids.

    I love Carl Hiaasen s YA novels and this one was TREMENDOUS Takes place on the Left Coast of FL and has a great cast of characters to love and to dislike I am an old fart 68 ,but I still enjoy a well written YA book and HOOT is definitely one

    Mullet fingers just escaped from his parents and know he is trying to save some owls that live in a mothers Paula pancake house terrain that is going to dig the owl s houses and obviously kill those owls Till there you can see it s a dumb and boring stories story but when mullet fingers starts risking his liberty painting the cops cars windows in black and trespassing private property not going to school which is illegal in Florida and escaping from his parents you are obviously in suspense Carl Hiaasen uses excellent word choice and excellent imagery I can imagine perfectly how Dana is struggling poor Roy The techniques Carl uses in this book are to have 2 settings and that in the end they unite and also she is having you with suspense so you keep reading it and also it has a bit of mystery I think that the author s intention is to be careful of our actions because if you don t know what you re doing you re probably end hurting the environment The book contains lots of details and word choice just like rumble, thicket, trudging and much I think also that some words are hard and not really descriptive but I can understand the word with the context I think that she never uses the technique of repetition In depth I think that the book is a compete adventure with funny parts and sad parts but it s an excellent book.
