This Newbery Honor-winning, hilarious Floridian adventure involves new kids, bullies, alligators, eco-warriors, pancakes, pint-sized owls, and more. A New York Times bestseller!

Everybody loves Mother Paula’s pancakes. Everybody, that is, except the colony of cute but endangered owls that live on the building site of the new restaurant. Can the awkward new kid and his feral friend prank the pancake people out of town? Or is the owls’ fate cemented in pancake batter?

            The book was great most of the time, it left chapters with cliffhangers or just a huge reveal and I think that is good in a book that makes you want to read more. Recommend to anyone.

                  I think that it is a great book because they are trying to help the owls and fight for what they believe in.
