The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2013 - now out in paperback A dog barking, a cat meowing, a baby screaming – all of these are set off in a chain reaction when the little old lady who lives at the bottom of the house goes clump, clump, clump across the floor. Young readers will love to join in this exuberant celebration of the noises of everyday life as they run up ands down a tall terraced house.
The Very Noisy House by Julie Rhodes
This rickety old house can be very noisy. Clomp! Clomp! Clomp! Goes the old lady's walking stick. In the room above, the dog wonders if that noise is a knock at the door - woof! Woof! Woof! And that wakes up the ginger cat in the room above who thinks the dog is chasing her - meow! Meow! Meow! Then the frightened cat wakes up the baby in the room above - waaah! Waah! Waah! Follow the riotous noises on each floor of the creaky old house as each resident makes their own crazy din.
This delightful rhyming text is ideal for sharing with young children, providing many opportunities for them to join in. Written by a first-time author and illustrated by a highly successful picture book artist, this is sure to be a winner with both young and old.
'Crazily illustrated by the great Korky Paul, but with attractive front and back endpapers provided by primary school pupils, this book crackles with riot and energy all the way through. Not to enjoy it must be a near impossibility.' The Independent on Sunday
'A book which attracts the attention ... Perfect to share with young children who will relish the opportunity to join in with all the noises.' Parents in Touch
An amusing story and perfect for children's vocal orchestrations. Red Reading Hub
'A quirkily original read with detailed vibrant illustrations that children will enjoy looking into and exploring closely. Early Years Educator
This book is a winner. It's ideal for reading aloud and children will love the mounting tension, the noise... and the thrill of joining in. Nursery World
