Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!

By Wynton Marsalis
Illustrated by Paul Rogers

“This exuberant articulation of sounds both subtle and grandiose is sure to inspire closer listening and creative responses.” —School Library Journal

What’s that sound? The back door squeeeaks open, sounding like a noisy mouse nearby—eeek, eeeek, eeeek! Big trucks on the highway rrrrrrrumble, just as hunger makes a tummy grrrrumble. Ringing with exuberance and auditory delights, this collaboration by world-renowned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and acclaimed illustrator Paul Rogers takes readers (and listeners) on a rollicking, clanging, clapping tour through the many sounds that fill a neighborhood. Now available in an accessible reduced trim for young noisemakers and music-lovers.

  • Second collaboration between world-renowned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and artist Paul Rogers
  • Now available as a paperback!
  • Received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and SLJ
