What's That Noise?

Written by Isabel Minhos Martins, Mad

What's That Noise? Synopsis

From award-winning Portuguese duo, Isabel Minhos Martins and Madalena Matoso, comes another truly inventive picture book that takes readers on a sensory adventure in the pursuit of friendship. Rendered in Matoso's distinctive, eye-catching style,What's That Noise? invites young children to investigate who exactly is calling them from inside the book. Readers will delight in following the clues by 'tip-toeing' with their fingers through an empty forest, braving a terrible storm of their own making, holding their ear up to the book to discern where to turn next and creating a shelter for their new friend when danger looms. A story that can only be told using fingers, eyes, ears and noses, What's That Noise? engages readers on all levels, and shows that to build a friendship takes time, patience and an adventurous spirit.

What's That Noise? Press Reviews

The clever use of shapes and instructions will keep young readers involved from beginning to end, puzzling out the source of the supposed voice--although endpapers offer a big hint. Little fingers are encouraged to, among other things, walk, tiptoe, and drum-roll. There are also two vocalizing opportunities--and, yes, a chance to use the nose. Fingers will move over shapes representing a forest, rivers, and the dark: a black double-page spread with two round, white shapes. Are those eyeballs?! For optimal use, no more than three at a time should share this book, unless desiring chaotic silliness. More engaging fun than many higher-tech devices. --Kirkus A graphic design tour de force that coaxes young readers into a voyage of discovery. --School Library Journal
