Look there--a tasty rabbit for him to eat Hoot Owl readies his costume, disguising himself as . . . a carrot Then he waits. The rabbit runs off. Never mind Surely his next juicy target will cower against such a clever and dangerous creature as he Kids will hoot at Sean Taylor's deliciously tongue-in-beak narration, belied by the brilliantly comical illustrations of Jean Jullien.
