What a Hoot!

By Frann Preston-Gannon


A companion to the best-selling Hot Dog, Cold Dog, Frann Preston-Gannon's newest book is What a Hoot! "This" and "that" comparisons are cleverly illustrated by the antics of adorable owls, just the right fit for ages 2 - 5, and parents will appreciate the bold artistry of Frann’s whimsical illustrations.

Whether sloshing through mud in a pair of rainboots (“This one’s dirty!”) or nose-to-nose with a rubber ducky in a sudsy tub (“That one’s clean!”), the plump, colorful owls embody simple opposites that kids will immediately appreciate. Frann’s owls fly early readers through pages of rhyme-filled, read-aloud fun to a surprise ending that will have them hooting with delight.

Frann Preston-Gannon is a London-based illustrator and author (and former bookseller), whose books include the bestselling Hot Dog, Cold Dog (POW! 2014) and How to Lose a Lemur (Sterling, 2013).
