Synopsis

Noisy Neighbours by Ruth Green

The hero of Noisy Neighbours is a tired and grumpy snail who is searching for some peace and quiet. Wherever he goes he bumps into his neighbours - chirping sparrows, singing foxes, hooting owls, quacking ducks and buzzing bees - each noisier than the last! In the end he decides to invite all his neighbours to a party where they make lots of noise and have so much fun they are tired out and fall to sleep. At last the snail can get some peace! This amusing story is illustrated with the colourful screen-prints that have made Ruth Green one of the leading illustrators of her generation. The different animal characters are framed within decorative branches and flowers, the prints' bold colours creating striking contrasts as each page is turned. Noisy Neighbours , along with Big-Top Benn and Counting Birds, are our first books on a newly dedicated paperback list for children's picture books. Produced with the same care and attention to detail as all of our books for children, we hope this series will make the innovative and creative artwork, for which Tate Publishing has become so well known, accessible to even wider audiences.
