What Noise Do I Make?
Stumped? Look no further for the answers than this engaging and interactive book born from the research and imagination of cartoonist Brian McLachlan. What Noise Do I Make? introduces readers to an exotic range of animals and, with the turn of a page (and a heavy dose of humor), shows what noise the animal makes. For instance: did you know alligators go WOARRRRGH, walruses go HOARF, and zebras go: squirp squirp!
The simple concept is skillfully and hilariously executed with phonetic spelling, hand-lettered sound effects, expressive line work, and offbeat color choices. Subtle gags for the preschool set are woven throughout the pages: animals with mistaken voice identities, a silent giraffe, and a group of primates going wild. The last spread—a city scene—shows that humans make plenty of noises, too.
This book is guaranteed to provoke a giggle and encourage participation while supporting the early learning processes of inquiry, observation, interpretation, and play.
