Longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2014  Sam’s family all love noise. And they make a lot of it! When Sam has had just too much noise, he sets off to enjoy the deep peace of the forest. But being alone has its problems too…How Sam learns to love his family and the noise it makes is entertainingly captured in Ed Vere’s lively illustrations.

Too Noisy! Synopsis

This is a heartwarming read-aloud (shout-aloud!) comedy from Malachy Doyle, boldly illustrated by Ed Vere, about a very noisy family and a very quiet middle child...who just wants some peace!! The Bungles are ever such a noisy bunch and Sam, the middle Bungle, is desperate to escape his booming, twooting, banging, clanging family. So, off he wanders into the wood for some peace and quiet. Deeper and deeper he goes, until ...EEK! What's that climbing up his trouser leg? Beek! He's lost and cold and scared! Oh, how he misses the comfortable hullaboo of his own Bungle tribe. But wait ...what can he hear?! A boomty-boomty-booming! Who could it be? You've guessed it! It's his family all a-banging, squeaking and squawking! Sam realizes that quiet may be good ...but noisy's just as good sometimes - especially when you're lost! This is a perfect book for families! Children will instantly relate to the character of Sam and his chattering brothers and sisters - who is the noisiest in your house? Ed's distinctive and energetic style is the perfect match for Malachy's striking language.
