While Hoot was written as a book for young readers adults like it too. In Carl Hiaasen's book Roy is a new boy in a Florida middle school. He meets a bully named Dana who picks on him on the school bus, a soccer playing girl named Beatrice who is bigger and stronger than any of the boys and Beatrice's runaway stepbrother who won't tell anyone his name. The unnamed step brother has found borrowing owls on the site where a new restaurant is going up. Will Roy, Beatrice and the boy without a name save the owls? Read the book to find out, or see the movie. ( )

This book is about Roy Eberhardt, who is new in town, and subsequently being targeted by the local bully Dana Matherson. When Roy is getting his face smooshed into the bus window he sees a kid running away from the bus and is intrigued by who they could be. Finding out who the kid is leads him on an adventure in trying to protect a family of burrowing owls from from a construction project that would destroy their home. Hoot takes a look at bullying, animal conservation, protesting, and making friends in a way that's accessible to young readers. ( )

For my daughter's book group. They're going to watch the movie version and compare/discuss. It was fun and just what I needed when I was feeling under the weather. ( )

Young adult book, with usual Hiaasen themes against overdevelopment in Florida. Instead of ex-governor Skink in the woods, we have Mullet Fingers sabotaging the construction of a pancake house to save burrowing owls. ( )

Children's/tween fiction; realistic fiction. A story about a middle-school boy that doesn't fit in and the unlikely friends he makes as they set out to save endangered owls from being bulldozed over. The narrator does a fair job here but overall not a spectacular story. ( )

Pat Tate (Carousel 23 (Spring 2003))
Roy Eberhardt is being bullied by Dana Matherson, mainly because he is the new boy who has just moved to the school in Florida from Montana. A refreshingly different tale because Roy resolutely refuses to give in to the bully, and as a result of this positive stand he sees something mysterious which develops into an intriguing story. There is a connection with the tantalising title and cover and the delightful humour, together with the lovably quirky characters in this special novel, is most satisfying. My heart warmed to the policeman who fell asleep in his patrol car, and woke to find someone had painted all the windows black. The book feels very American but young readers will cope with the slight cultural differences, which may well enhance their enjoyment of the tale.

Nicholas Tucker (Books for Keeps No. 140, May 2003)
Hiaasen must be the most entertaining environmental author there has yet been. Now addressing a younger audience for the first time, his latest passionate but also very funny novel jogs along paths already familiar to fans of his previous adult eco-thrillers. Set in his beloved but continuously over-developed state of Florida, this story features a wild boy out to defeat a Pancake company from building on land dwelt in by rare burrowing owls. Up against him are Curly, the grumpy, bald site foreman, Officer Delinko, an unfortunate policeman, and Chuck E Muckle, company chairman and ruthless entrepreneur. All this is witnessed by Roy, a new boy in the area who is also the target of his school's chief bully. How everything finally works out is a joy to behold, with enough one-liners to keep any reader happy long after the event. Category: 10-14 Middle/Secondary. Rating: ***** (Unmissable). ...., Macmillan, 288pp, D9.99 pbk. Ages 10 to 14.

Roy would not have noticed the strange boy if it weren't for Dana Matherson, because Roy ordinarily didn't look out the window of the school bus.
