Roy, who is new to his small Florida community, becomes involved in another boy's attempt to save a colony of burrowing owls from a proposed construction site.

I avoided this one for a while because, having read a couple of Hiaasen's adult novels, I doubted his ability to bring his very unique world into an adolescent-appropriate mindset. I was wrong. Hiaasen here maintains his quirky understanding of Florida as a world apart (and I say that as a resident), all the while tackling issues that I will engage my middle-schooler. Looks like I'm going to be picking up his other YA stuff. (#37--a book with a one-word title)

A funny and fast-paced tale of bullies and owls in south Florida. Roy Eberhardt is the new kid in town, and bullied by obnoxious Dana Matheson. One day Roy spies a shoeless kid from the school bus, and decides to follow him. This boy is a runaway from a truly awful Mom, but he is more than a runaway. "Mullet Fingers" is intent on saving burrowing owls from being bulldozed by a developer, and Roy gets caught up in his plans. This book has so many good things: understanding and helpful parents, environmental awareness, humor, unusual friendships, courage against dumb bullies, children coping with bad parents in amazing ways. Lots of twists and turns as this story races to a satisfying conclusion. Fifth grade and up will root for Roy, Mullet Fingers and his sister Beatrice, the soccer star. ( )

Hiaasen, Carl. Hoot. 2002. Knopf, 2020.
I admire any writer who can write a book for children that will not make adults gag. Carl Hiaasen has that knack. Hoot is full of pro-social messages, such as saving endangered owls, appreciating the fragile Florida ecology, modeling positive and negative parenting, and allowing children to be believable agents. All these good messages, and yet the book is never preachy and never talks down to its child audience. In some ways, Hiaasen is an unlikely guy for this kind of writing. After all, he cut his teeth as a crime reporter and a writer of hardboiled comic thrillers like Striptease and Tourist Season. The character types he uses in his adult fiction are all here. There is the sleazy corporate villain, a couple of loner protagonists with McGyver-like ability to improvise their way in and out of trouble, bumbling authority figures, and even a barefoot boy who seems to be a Skink in the making. Parents and children will find laugh-out-loud moments, though not necessarily the same ones. ( )

Pat Tate (Carousel 23 (Spring 2003))
Roy Eberhardt is being bullied by Dana Matherson, mainly because he is the new boy who has just moved to the school in Florida from Montana. A refreshingly different tale because Roy resolutely refuses to give in to the bully, and as a result of this positive stand he sees something mysterious which develops into an intriguing story. There is a connection with the tantalising title and cover and the delightful humour, together with the lovably quirky characters in this special novel, is most satisfying. My heart warmed to the policeman who fell asleep in his patrol car, and woke to find someone had painted all the windows black. The book feels very American but young readers will cope with the slight cultural differences, which may well enhance their enjoyment of the tale.

Nicholas Tucker (Books for Keeps No. 140, May 2003)
Hiaasen must be the most entertaining environmental author there has yet been. Now addressing a younger audience for the first time, his latest passionate but also very funny novel jogs along paths already familiar to fans of his previous adult eco-thrillers. Set in his beloved but continuously over-developed state of Florida, this story features a wild boy out to defeat a Pancake company from building on land dwelt in by rare burrowing owls. Up against him are Curly, the grumpy, bald site foreman, Officer Delinko, an unfortunate policeman, and Chuck E Muckle, company chairman and ruthless entrepreneur. All this is witnessed by Roy, a new boy in the area who is also the target of his school's chief bully. How everything finally works out is a joy to behold, with enough one-liners to keep any reader happy long after the event. Category: 10-14 Middle/Secondary. Rating: ***** (Unmissable). ...., Macmillan, 288pp, D9.99 pbk. Ages 10 to 14.

Roy would not have noticed the strange boy if it weren't for Dana Matherson, because Roy ordinarily didn't look out the window of the school bus.
