About this Book What’s That Noise? invites young adventurers to investigate who exactly is calling them from inside the book. Children will delight in following the clues by “tip-toeing” with their fingers through an empty forest, braving a terrible storm, holding their ear up to the book to discern where to turn next, and creating a shelter when danger looms. A story that can only be told using fingers, eyes, ears, and noses, What’s That Noise? engages readers on all levels, and shows that building a friendship takes time, patience, and an adventurous spirit. The clever use of shapes and instructions will keep young readers involved from beginning to end. The ending may be heartwarming, but the dramatic journey is its own reward—just the kind of message we'd like to reinforce in children everywhere.
Reviews from Around the World "My little one loves interactive books and was so thrilled with this one that she had to bring it home from the library even though we’d read it multiple times there." - Kari, Goodreads
"Something hidden deep inside this book from Portugal or inside something on its pages--I won't spoil the fun by revealing what it is--is calling to readers. Savvy readers will look for clues as to where to go and what to do and let their fingers as well as their eyes do the walking until they have figured everything out. But even then, they will need to be vigilant since threats to a new friend might be hiding everywhere. I liked the variety of each page, some filled mostly with black, and others with blades of grass while still others feature fruits and encourage readers to smell. I swear that I could almost smell that fruit. This would be a fun adventure for many youngsters." - Barbara, Goodreads
