Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!
A Sonic Adventure

author: Wynton Marsalis
illustrator: Paul Rogers

What’s that sound? The back door squeeeaks open, sounding like a noisy mouse nearby—eeek, eeeek, eeeek! Big trucks on the highway rrrrrrrumble, just as hunger makes a tummy grrrrumble. Ringing with exuberance and auditory delights, this collaboration by world-renowned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and acclaimed illustrator Paul Rogers takes readers (and listeners) on a rollicking, clanging, clapping tour through the many sounds that fill a neighborhood. Now available in an accessible reduced trim for young noisemakers and music-lovers.

“This exuberant articulation of sounds both subtle and grandiose is sure to inspire closer listening and creative responses.” —School Library Journal
