Big Talk

By Paul Fleischman
Illustrated by Beppe Giacobbe

"Following his Newbery Medal-winning Joyful Noise, Fleischman offers another collection of beautifully orchestrated, spirited poems for many voices." — Booklist

These rousing, rib-tickling poems demand the joy of reading aloud. Settle back and chant "The Quiet Evenings Here," as Grandma rocks, the clock tick-tocks, and no one cares a hoot for the world outside. Delight in "Seventh-Grade Soap Opera," alive with hearsay about who’s holding hands with whom. This innovative book weaves a tapestry of rhythm that will have readers of all ages sounding off.

  • Paul Fleischman won the Newbery Medal for "Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices".
  • You'll have to see, shout, share, perform, and experience it to believe it!
