Review: Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise

Owl is on the hunt. It's dark and he darts through the sky like a shooting star. He has his big round eyes on a rabbit. Mmmm. Dinner.

But how to catch the rabbit? Luckily for Owl, he is the master of disguise, so he quickly dons ... a carrot costume!

Alas, the Rabbit hotfoots it.

Next is a delicious woolly lamb. The master of disguise does a quick costume change. He's a ...
... fluffy mother sheep, of course! But alas, the little lamb gets away.

On and on he tries for dinner, but alas, his costumes just don't cut it. Until ... what should an owl wear whilst on the hunt for pizza?

This is a kooky-good book that will have kids giggling along as Owl sets about filling his belly. Gorgeous, high contrast illustrations will enormously satisfy both kids and design aficionados, and a rollicking sense of humour will have everyone smiling.

Repetitive text makes this a great book to read to a crowd.
