The Very Noisy House Synopsis

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.
