A laugh-out-loud page turner from Sean Taylor with wickedly hilarious graphic art from Jean Jullien. This is the funniest picture book I have read in a long time David Walliams From masterful storyteller Sean Taylor and exciting, celebrated graphic artist Jean Jullien, comes the laugh-out-loud tale of Hoot Owl. Hoot Owl is ordinary owl - oh ! - he's a master of disguise! And he will use his expert camouflage powers to trick his unsuspecting prey into succumbing to him! 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? Hilarity, ridiculousness and very bad costume changes abound in this wildly inventive new title.
