What Noise Do I Make?

Author(s): Brian McLachlan

Picture Books

We all know dogs bark "woof" and cats mew "meow" but what noises do ostriches or peacocks or kookaburras make? Stumped? Look no further for the answers than this engaging and interactive book born from the research and imagination of cartoonist Brian McLachlan. "What Noise Do I Make?" introduces readers to an exotic range of animals and, with the turn of a page (and a heavy dose of humor), shows what noise the animal makes. For instance: did you know alligators go "WOARRRRGH," walruses go "HOARF," and zebras go: "squirp squirp"! The simple concept is skillfully and hilariously executed with phonetic spelling, hand-lettered sound effects, expressive line work, and offbeat color choices. Subtle gags for the preschool set are woven throughout the pages: animals with mistaken voice identities, a silent giraffe, and a group of primates going wild. The last spreada city sceneshows that humans make plenty of noises, too. This book is guaranteed to provoke a giggle and encourage participation while supporting the early learning processes of inquiry, observation, interpretation, and play.
