"AAAHHH!" by Guilherme Karsten (Thames and Hudson)

Thames and Hudson once again reinforce their reputation for publishing some of the most original and gorgeous picture books from creators around the world with the fun and chaotically crazy "Aaahhh!" by Guilherm Karsten.

The world wakes up to a noise. Not just any noise but the loudest and most irritating noise you can possibly imagine (no it's not my snoring!)

Chaos ensues as everyone around the world chases around to try and find the source of the noise.

Is it aliens? Could it be someone going crazy with a broken Saxophone? Is it a meteor crashing into a car horn factory?

No one knows - but when the truth comes out, everyone's completely taken by surprise that something could make such a colossal racket.

This is fablous stuff, reminiscent of crazy 1960s picture books that always featured a rambunctuous chase around the planet. We love this one to bits!

Sum this book up in a sentence: A superb original and crazy book that'll tickle little ones as they try to second-guess what the noise is right up to the big reveal.

"Aaahhh!" by Guilherme Karsten is out now, published by Thames and Hudson (kindly supplied for review).
