Description
"It's not fair!" complains Little Hoot, in this follow-up to Little Pea. All Little Hoot wants is to go to bed at a reasonable hour, like his friends do. But noŚMama and Papa say little owls have to stay up late and play. So Little Hoot spends all night jumping on his bed, playing on the jungle gym, and doing tricks on his skateboard; how will he make it to sunrise? The author of such Daedalus favorite children's books as Duck! Rabbit! and Exclamation Mark! (as well as the adult memoir Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life and regular contributions to NPR and TED conferences), Amy Krouse Rosenthal began writing for children with the trio of "Little Books" for readers 4 to 7. This clever twist on going to bed stars adorably counterintuitive animal characters, depicted in Jen Corace's winning ink and watercolor cartoons; and, while the story is a masterpiece of reverse psychology, it also provides an engaging new perspective. "Little Hoot is just the kind of follow-up one wants," wrote Daniel Handler in the New York Times Book Review. "It gives us a family of owls whose baby does not want to stay up late. Corace's illustrations are more daring, throwing a wider color spectrum into the mix.... The book feels familiar right away without losing its sense of surpriseŚsuch a pleasure to read that even 'they owl lived happily ever after' can be forgiven."
