Synopsis

Be Quiet, Mike! by Leslie Patricelli

Digga digga digga digga zat zoom crash/Leslie Patricelli's lovable (but noisyl) new character finds an ingenious way to create a sound all his own. Even before he was born, Monkey Mike started drumming. Kick! Thump! Pow! Wherever he goes, his rhythms sing: swish, thack, go his books; bang, clank, goes the dustbin; tap, tap, go his pencils; and 'Be Quiet, Mike!' yells everyone around him. But one day Mike sees a real drum set in a shop window - and puts his hands-on talent to work in a most impressive way. With the bold graphic style and clever details her readers love, Leslie Patricelli strikes a cymbal for active, high-energy little monkeys everywhere. The many different sounds and high-energy story make this a great read-aloud. Nothing if not resourceful, Mike turns ordinary household items into a first-rate drum kit and produces great music. This is an adorable new character from Leslie Patricelli, creator of the ever popular baby board books Dummy and Blankie .

Reviews

Patricelli's bright acrylic pictures are the definition of upbeat and bouncy, and she gives the irrepressible, well-meaning Mike unexpected depth and poignancy.--Publishers WeeklyA marvelous model of a family ultimately nurturing the member who marches to his own beat.--Kirkus Reviews

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
