Too Noisy!

By Malachy Doyle
Illustrated by Ed Vere

A heart-warming read-aloud (shout-aloud!) comedy from Malachy Doyle, boldly illustrated by Ed Vere, about a very noisy family and a very quiet middle child ... who just wants some PEACE!!

The Bungles are ever such a noisy bunch and Sam, the middle Bungle, is desperate to escape his booming, twooting, banging, clanging family. So off he wanders into the wood for some peace and quiet. Deeper and deeper he goes, until ... EEK! What's that climbing up his trouser leg? BEEK! He's lost and cold and scared! But wait ... what can he hear?! A boomty-boomty-booming! Who could it be? You've guessed it! It's his family all a-banging, squeaking and squawking! Sam realizes that quiet may be good ... but sometimes noisy's just as good – especially when you're lost!

  • A perfect book for families. Children will instantly relate to the character of Sam and his chattering brothers and sisters ... who is the noisiest in your house?
  • Ed s distinctive and energetic style is the perfect match for Malachy s dynamic language.
  • "A great book for anyone with preschool children off to face the world" We Love This Book
