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.' Magpies..Both 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!
