From masterful storyteller Sean Taylor and celebrated graphic artist Jean Jullien comes the laugh-out-loud tale of Hoot Owl.

Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl – oh no! – he's a master of disguise, and he will use his expert camouflage powers to trick his unsuspecting prey. Tiny animals of the night… beware! But somehow, Hoot Owl's prey keeps escaping... Hmmm, perhaps he isn't quite as masterful as he believes. Will he ever succeed in catching himself some dinner?

Full of hilarious costume changes and bold, graphic illustrations, you'll love this book as much as your kids will – it's sure to become a firm favourite!
