Synopsis

Ruby Roars by Margaret Wild

When she was a baby, Ruby liked making popping noises with her dummy. 'Pop! Pop! Pop!'When she was older, she tried making scary noises instead. 'Scrrr! Screekle! Scrunch!'But she couldn't frighten anyone, not a frog, not a fish.'Shivers!' thought Ruby.What was the scariest noise she could make?And she opened her mouth wide to find out.'Beware, this story could provoke a wild rumpus.' MagpiesBoth author and illustrator are donating a portion of their royalties to the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal.

Reviews

Like Wild's Our Granny (1993), this is a story filled with movement and physical affection. The lap-sit audience will love the squishy, lumpy sounds and the repetition of the text as they point to the animals in the clear, bright pictures. -- Booklist on Kiss Kiss!
