  3. Guys the assignment for to day is to write at least 5 character trait about Roy and 2 for Dana,Beatrice,Beatrices step brother and Garret.

  4. I think it is smart of Carl Hiaasen to call the book Hoot because one of the characters claims he sees a owls nest, but then after the cop asks about the owls nest the guy says “What nest?”.

  5. I think that the author emphasizes the plot by going straight into the scene when one of the main characters, Roy, sees a kid with no shoes or socks running on the road and through garden hedges. The author does this to put mystery into the story, and it is effective and makes me want to keep reading the book. And I think it would make anyone get drawn into the tale.

    But when does he introduce the owl that was in that hole?

  6. I think he starts it off with a plot because in the first part he starts with the running boy.I think he chooses it so we can predict what happens next and makes you want to read it more.Yes it is a very effective strategy.

  7. Hi Hoot readers! I’m going to help you get your conversation going by asking you a question that will take some thought (and knowledge of the book) in order to answer. There’s no one right answer, but you need to support your ideas with evidence from the book. In other words, always tell WHY you’re thinking the way you are. (Sometimes you’ll notice relevant information that others won’t.) Don’t copy what anyone else has said. Later, go back and comment on other people’s comments. That makes them feel valued and respected. Feel free to ask your own questions to keep the discussion going!
    Does Carl Hiaasen emphasize characters, setting, or plot to open his story? Why does he choose this strategy? Do you think it’s effective?
