Hoot Theme

Kevin Garcia

"Except for the fence with fading streamers, the land bore no sign that the pancake house people had ever been there." In the novel "Hoot" by Carl Hiaasen, Roy, Beatrice and Mullet Fingers save the owls from a construction site. in "Hoot" we learn to "stand up for what you believe in."

First, Roy wanted to help Mullet Fingers save the owls, and he did. "In the end, Mother Paula's had no choice but to abandon it's plan to put a restaurant on the corner of East Orile and Woodbury." (Pg 284) Mullet Fingers, Roy and Beatrice had to "Stand up for what they believed in" and they did because they saved the owls.

Next, Mullet Fingers was going to give up, but he didn't " I don't care if they have the legal papers, we have to save the owls." (Pg 255) Mullet Fingers did not care if they had the legal papers to build the restaurant, he still wanted to save the owls no matter what. Mullet Fingers believed that he had to save the owls no matter what

Lastly, Roy, Beatrice and Mullet a fingers convinced a lot of other people about saving the owls, so other people started to form a fence around the owls. "Roy watched in wonderment as more and more kids slipped put of the crowd forming a human burricade." (Pg 272) People formed a human fence around the owls to protect them. Roy, Beatrice and Mullet Fingers convinced everybody to save the owls (or to stand up for what they believed in) and because of this, the owls were saved.

In "Hoot" we learn to "Stand up for what you believe in."If you believe something is wrong, you can fix it, but don't give up. If you think someone is doing something you don't like, stand up and do something about it.
