Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise

Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise by Sean Taylor, illustrated by Jean Jullien, is just fantastic. It is fresh and a little shocking (animals don’t usually talk about eating other animals in kids’ books with quite such relish) which just adds to the humour – it is very, very funny.
Hoot Owl is delightfully deluded about his own prowess as he prowls the night for prey:
Hoot Owl believes he is a MASTER OF DISGUISE! And he will use his formidable camouflage powers to trick his unsuspecting prey into succumbing to him! Tiny animals of the night …BEWARE!
Or perhaps not – his disguises are possibly not as good as he thinks…

Will Hoot Owl ever catch his dinner?
This is a great antidote to all the pretty owl stationery that is currently having a moment, and wonderful, ridiculous fun for both the reader and the readee.
