Hoot Owl by Sean Taylor is a cute picture book for children. Hoot Owl spends the entire story swooping down for prey he can't seem to catch, until...

We loved the narrator, Rick Adamson. He really makes the story spark.

a juicy little lamb stands, helpless,
in the cool of the night!
The lamb looks cuddly,
but soon I will be eating it.

The illustrations are cute and we loved the ending.

A young hoot owl is hungry. He hunts for food by dressing up in various disguises, but his prey continues to escape before he gets to it. He ends up getting some food…but not exactly what you’d expect an owl to “hunt”. Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, written by Sean Taylor and illustrated by Jean Jullien, was a simple, silly, repetitive and fun book. Because of this, it would be best for grades K-2 and maybe 3rd grade at the beginning of the year. The illustrations were very well done as well. The facial expressions of the hoot owl while he’s on the hunt are very entertaining!

This is a good book to read with a early childhood classroom. This book has different prediction that children are able to make by seeing if the owl can really disguise himself as a different animal. This book has repetition that students are able to catch on and read along with. I would highly recommend this book in an early childhood classroom as a fun read for all students. ( )

This story is perfect for emergent readers. It is about an owl who is hungry and eats some pizza. It is great for teaching rhyming, and the kids can pick up on the rhymes quickly. The pictures are very appealing to the eye. The story is very fun and entertaining.

This book is about an owl who is looking for food and finally settles for pizza. This book is for younger readers pre-k to 1st grade. You can teach descriptive language, alliteration, rhyming, and repetition using this book. ( )

Watch out! Hoot Owl is hungry in an offbeat story with deadpan humor and bold, striking illustrations.

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.
