Roy Eberhardt moves house constantly; it’s a feature of his father’s work. However, moving from Montana to Florida is especially hard. There’s the school bully to shake off, the misconception he’s a ‘cowboy’ and then there’s the mystery of the barefoot, running boy who is determined to be invisible. ‘Hoot‘ is a truly readable story- pacy, adventurous, funny and gripping, with a subtle and hard-hitting message, that works for all readers.
