This book takes a noisy- and entirely fresh and funny - approach to poetry. In it, verses sputter, shout, chatter, and beg to be read out loud. Poet Bobbi Katz sets every foot to tapping and tongue to rapping with her infectious odes to noises of all kinds. From burps to soothing ocean waves to honking horns, noises jump and jangle. Paired with the stylish, boldly graphic illustrations of newcomer Susan Kwas, whose artwork snaps and pops as vigorously as the poems themselves, this volume guarantees readers an eyeful as well as an earful. After enjoying the noisiness, kids will want to raise a rousing cheer for poetry!
