   Great book for 5th grader
My 10 year old daughter loves this book so much that she has read it countless times. There are some topics to discuss with your kiddo, but the book was a great read. I also liked that it brought awareness of the need to protect nature and to respect endangered species. A great buy.
   Great book
It was great, there were a lot of ups and downs, and there were some surprises that you would not think would happen, especially at the end. I think kids would really like this book because it stands for what is right even if it is not the safest way, for teachers, it teaches children about the environment and is a great book to go with it.
   It was a great book
I thought it was a great book because it could give people strength to stand for what is right. I also went to Montana and if I lived there, I would never leave. I also got to read Carl's other book called Chomp, which was just as good.
   Takes my breath away!!!!!!
Every part is fast, I finished it in two nights and I am no amazing reader. I read half the book in the fifth grade for the class and put it on my mom's kindle. I got it off our cloud and I'm glad I did!!!!!!!!!!! Now that I have oneself, I got it off our cloud and I'm glad I did! Mr. Hiaasen!!! Praise and admiration for Mr. Hiaasen!!! ! !
   Fun read for family time
Alex and I read the book for several weeks a chapter a night and I read the book for several weeks a chapter a night. I am a story of the coming of age that is a beautiful coming of age story. Invites folks to think about choices and consequences and just enough big boy moments for Alex to feel loved me, he was reading a advanced children's book. Hoot was a hoot to read! Hoot '' was a hoot to write!
   Pathetic characters
When I read a book to my children, I like to have at least some characters they can admire. The main character in this book makes a lot of really dumb decisions like not telling his parents that a kid is bullying him or lying to a police officer. Even the adults are pathetic ; a school counselor sees a kid with obvious strangle marks around his neck, and does nothing to the perpetrator. The idea of trying to save owls is great, but let's try to have at least a couple of likable characters.
   This is a good book for the age level intended.
Carl Hiaasen I think Hoot was just about the funniest guy ever to write a book. When I get a chance, I read him. He wrote Hoot '' for middle school kids and received a Newberry Honor Award for his trouble. I bought it not knowing any of this, but read it anyway. I am glad I did. Roy, the hero, comes from the west to Florida. He doesn 't know anyone and finds himself the odd man out at school. He makes friends as he can and becomes involved in a criminal attempt to break the endangered species act. This makes for some excitement, some enjoyment and with Carl Hiaasen some definitely weird things going on. All at the level that an eighth grader can deal with, All at the level that an eighth-grader can handle. We learn to stand up to bullies, even if we get our clock cleaned. We learn that having smarts turns out to have more uses than brutality. And we get to make fun of adults on occasion. I am a grown-up and I liked this book. Middle school children will like it too, I bet.
   Great book for the turning teenagers in your lives.
Awesome novel by a great American novelist, written specifically for his young, approaching teenage children. My grandson has recently turned 13 and this is his first attempt at reading a novel. It is so captivating and funny that it will not be his last. He was hooked after a few pages. A few more and he asked for the other books that this author wrote for his children for each of the upcoming holidays, like he gets gifts for Columbus Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving all of a sudden? He thinks that it would be a good tradition to start with a book for each holiday. We have had so much trouble trying to get this video gamer to read anything, that we are only too happy to start this new tradition.
   Nature-loving and fun
Hoot has an unusual plot, idiosyncratic characters, fun conversations, a true love of nature and lots of adventurous twists and turns. All of these would be worth five stars. The reasons I give the book four stars instead are A) the first half of the story, while interesting, seems directionless and B) some of the secondary characters are stereotyped. The book is, however, hopeful and touching and the ending is enjoyable.
   YA books appeal more than adult reads.
This is a sweet book. My heart bleeds for useless Mullet Hands and for all children with little parents. The contrast between Roy's life filled with loving events and two parents who adore him sharply contrasts the lives of the bullies he faces. After a quick glance at these Florida kids'complicated lives, kids joining together to save little burrowing owls provides a quick summation after a glance into complicated lives of these Florida kids. Unfortunately, the children warped by their strange parents remain unchanged by anything or anyone and continue as older versions of themselves.
