Synopsis

The Noisy Clock Shop by Jean Horton Berg

Mr. Winky, the clock shop owner, wants some quiet! Mr. Winky is fond of his noisy clock shop-until Mr. Glum comments on the awful noise, that is. Newly bothered by the constant tick tocks, Mr. Winky decides to leave. But no matter where he goes (the train, the countryside, and the woods), he can't find any peace. There's noise everywhere! Before long, Mr. Winky can't wait to get back to the comfort of his noisy clock shop.
