The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood, Renata Liwska


The Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood, Renata Liwska

The Quiet Book is now available in a cozy padded board book edition! In this irresistibly charming picture book, many different quiet moments are captured, from the anticipation - heavy Top of the roller coaster quiet to the shocked-into-silence First look at your new hairstyle quiet. The impossibly sweet bears, rabbits, fish, birds, and iguanas are all rendered in soft pencils and coloured digitally, and, as in all of the best picture books, the illustrations propel the story far beyond the words. Soft covers, rounded comers, and sturdy board book pages make this new classic the perfect bedtime companion.


This treasure of a book-which is appropriately gentle in both its understated text and artwork-catalogues many sorts of quiet that readers will recognize instantly. (Publishers Weekly)
