“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
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.)
