ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
In Hootity Hoot Powerful Owl is hungry. Is it just because it's winter that no possums can be found? Or is it deforestation and climate change - man's intervention - that is destroying the environment for this bird and so many other creatures? Fellow dwellers Wombat, Frilled-neck Lizard and Galah try desperately to help their unlikely friend. Although they are all different species, they band together to form a plan. Despite being a meat eater, Powerful Owl though very angry and resistant at first, decides to try their idea of a diet change. In order to survive, he must adapt. Unfortunately, it is not always the case that species could eat a different diet and survive natural and man-made disasters. The book is designed to bring a smile to readers' faces, but also to encourage curiosity, and hopefully lead to discussions about important themes and research into nature, especially relevant and topical in this time of raging bushfires in Australia. It highlights the consequences of friendship and alliances between different species; humans and animals. The book shows the ability to accept change and to adapt, something everyone should aspire to. Gaille intends to donate a percentage of her book takings to a cause related to animal care.
