Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl. He is a master of disguise! In the blackness of night, he's preparing to swoop on his prey before it can realize his dastardly tricks. Look there—a tasty rabbit for him to eat! Hoot Owl readies his costume, disguising himself as . . . a carrot! Then he waits. The rabbit runs off. Never mind! Surely his next juicy target will cower against such a clever and dangerous creature as he! Kids will hoot at Sean Taylor's deliciously tongue-in-beak narration, belied by the brilliantly comical illustrations of Jean Jullien.

    Starred review from December 15, 2014
    Taylor (The World Champion of Staying Awake) sends up old-fashioned suspense fiction by contrasting his hero’s puffed-up ego with his inept plans to capture things to eat. Newcomer Jullien paints Hoot Owl as a dumpy egg-cup of a bird—not the sort you’d expect to deliver this pitch-perfect purple prose: “The terrible silence of the night spreads everywhere. But I cut through it like a knife.” Hoot Owl spots his prey and lets readers in on his nefarious plans: “I am a master of disguise. I devise a costume.” The animals he’s after—a rabbit, lamb, and pigeon—all look remarkably composed when they spot Hoot Owl in disguise. “I disguise myself as an ornamental birdbath,” he says importantly. “I wait.” The pigeon perches on the edge of the birdbath, then flies off, a small curlicue above its head signaling mild puzzlement. Fortunately, the hungry Hoot Owl is finally able to deceive and capture something—a pizza. Smart pacing, easy-to-read spreads, and complete confidence that no animals will be hurt in the reading of this book make it a winner. Ages 3–7.
