    Compelling and wonderful, Carl Hiaasen’s New York Times bestselling and Newbery Award-Winning first novel celebrating the natural world, reissued for its fifteenth anniversary.

    Hilarious, touching and thought-provoking, Hoot is a modern classic, now celebrating its fifteenth anniversary. Winner of the Newbery Honor award and a New York Times bestseller, Carl Hiaasen’s first novel celebrates the natural world with his trademark wit and warmth.

    Roy Eberhardt never wanted to move to Florida. In his opinion, Disney World is an armpit.

    Roy’s family moves around a lot so he’s used to the new-kid drill – he’s also used to bullies like Dana Matherson. And anyway, it’s because of Dana that Roy gets to see the mysterious running boy who runs away from the school bus and who has no books, no backpack and, most bizarrely, no shoes.

    Sensing a mystery, Roy starts to trail the mystery runner – a chase that will introduce him to many weird Floridian creatures: potty-trained alligators, cute burrowing owls, a fake-fart champion, a shoeless eco-warrior, a sinister pancake PR man, new friends and some snakes with sparkly tails. As the plot thickens, Roy and his friends realise it’s up to them to save the endangered owls from the evil Mother Paula’s pancake company who are planning to build a new restaurant on their home . . .
