The creators of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise show that dark shades and daring antics don’t necessarily lead to instant coolness in a giggle-worthy send-up of trying too hard.
Look what Cat found on the playground! Sliding backward down the slide in these sunglasses is sure to make her look cool with extra cool on top . . . uh-oh! Of course, Cockatoo’s dancing on top of the seesaw wearing the glasses will definitely make him too cool for school . . . oh no! How about Pig’s standing up on the swing in the coveted shades? Drawn in by the silly story and the bold, graphic illustrations, kids will laugh out loud at the comeuppance of the animal poseurs and cheer for the savvy little chick who shows that coolness comes from just having regular old fun.
