Praise for The Noisy Book
“This celebration of sound is epic in its scope and delightful in its execution… Clever and raucous fun.”—Publishers Weekly

“With a catalog of over 50 animals and objects on 116 thinner-than-normal-but-still-sturdy pages (probably the longest board book on record), this offering gives youngsters plenty to chatter about”—Kirkus Reviews

“A brilliant book for very young tots, simple illustrations and large font make this fun and easy to read.” The Evening Standard, Best Picture Books for Children

“I loved that book [Noisy Book] so much, instead of grabbing a moment to myself, I would often sit and listen to my husband read it to her, giggling at his version of a donkey’s hee-haw or a frog’s ribbet. I admired the way that the book changed with every narrator who read it, that you could really inject your personality in the words and have fun with the sounds”—The Guardian

“It’s the simplest format in the world: a parade of pictures and sentences that describe the sound that goes with each image. But this turns simplicity into something like an art-form, and unlike most board books, this goes the full distance – all one hundred pages of it!”—Kids Confidential UK

“The Noisy Book lives up to its name. The author’s illustrations are admirably simple, bold and colourful, a pleasing match for the easy to read text on the facing page”—The Source AU

Publishers Weekly

Combining the tidy trim size and young audience of a board book with the range of an encyclopedia, this celebration of sound is epic in its scope and delightful in its execution. Printed on thin but sturdy glossy paper, each spread pairs a simple declaratory sentence (“The monkey goes oo oo oo,” “The fish go blub blub”) with Bravi’s friendly, chunky cartoons, outlined in thick black. Animals feature on most of the pages, though vehicles and various objects also appear, and Bravi includes some outside-the-box options, too (“The snail does nothing but move its elegant feelers”). Clever and raucous fun. Ages 1–up. (Apr.)
