Using lots of fun and interactive touch, trace, and lift-the-flap elements, An Owl Goes Hoot introduces young children to animals in the forest.

Listen to the grunting sound.
What's there behind that root?
Shsh . . . be silent as you peep . . .
(Lift tree-root flap)A badger eating fruit

Enter the leafy forest where lots of animals play, run, fly, and find their food. All you have to do is trace the line and lift the flaps to spot everything that's going on. Listen to a yip yip from the undergrowth to discover a fox eating grubs. A snorting in the shadows leads you to a red deer nibbling bark. And who's on the prowl? A hooting owl
