Be Quiet, Mike!
author/illustrator: Leslie Patricelli
Even before he was born, Mike started drumming. Kick! Thump! Pow! Wherever he goes, his rhythms sing: swis, thak, go his books; bang, clank, goes the trash can; tap, tap, go his pencils; and BE QUIET, MIKE! yells everyone around him. But one day Mike sees a drum set in a store window and puts his hands-on talents to work in a most impressive way. With the bold graphic style and clever details her readers love, Leslie Patricelli strikes a cymbal for active, high-energy little monkeys everywhere.
Digga-digga-digga-digga, zat, zoom, crash! Leslie Patricelli's lovable (but noisy!) character finds an ingenious way to create a sound all his own.
