From a jangling phone to a gentle breeze, these stories explore sounds both sharp and subtle. Caldecott award winners Margaret Wise Brown -- author of the childhood classic Goodnight Moon -- and illustrator Leonard Weisgard present three poetic and winsomely illustrated tales that introduce young readers to the everyday wonders of sound.
The Noisy Book explores a world of hissing radiators and buzzing flies through the ears of Muffin, a little dog with bandaged eyes. In The Indoor Noisy Book, Muffin listens from his room at the top of the stairs to a sweeping broom, rattling silverware, a gushing faucet, and other household sounds. And in The Quiet Noisy Book, Muffin hears the softest sounds of all, from a butterfly unfolding its wings to an early bird catching a worm.
