A delicate panoply of sounds made by everything from a tugboat to a tuba is illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner, Peter Spier. His exuberant pictures display the unerring color sense, imagination, and attention to detail that have made his work a favorite with hundreds of thousands of children.

With bass drum ("Bom! Bom! Bom!") and blaring bugle ("Ta-terah!!"), it's a pleasure to herald the return of Caldecott Medalist Spier's exuberant--and perceptive--visualization of sounds. Now available in a large-sized board book, this appealing collection will provide parents and their children with plenty of interactive opportunity as they "listen" to such noisemakers as a a nerve-jangling jackhammer, an ominous thundercloud and a police car giving chase (sounding, appropriately enough, like "You-You-You-You-You-You."). Spier's bright and cheery illustrations are crammed full of details in this fun-filled follow-up to Gobble , Growl , Grunt . The book's spreads are organized into familiar areas and topics ranging from a kitchen with its busy blender and whistling teakettle to a jubilant musical finale. A robust, ho-ho-ho-ing Santa and fireworks bring this visual cacophony to a rousing close. Ages 3-6.
