"I Don't Want to be Quiet" by Laura Ellen Anderson (Bloomsbury Children's Books)

Loud is the word here, in a busy and energetic little book from a hugely talented author-illustrator.

"I Don't Want to be Quiet" by Laura Ellen Anderson centres around a little girl who, just like my daughter, seems to make an awful big din for someone so diminutive.

She loves stomping up and down stairs. STOMP STOMP STOMP!

She loves drumming with spoons! CLATTER BASH CRASH!

Silence is not her bestie, and all mum wants to do is get on with some work, but this little miss has other ideas.

How about some nice, quiet, gentle HUMMING instead!

A hilarious gag-filled story that'll have most parents nodding tiredly along in recognition of the observations made here. For all those of you (like us) who get to the weekend and wonder why the house suddenly sounds like a cacophony of noise, this is a brilliant little read.

Sum this book up a sentence: A little girl's noisy life depicted perfectly, in a story that kids will absolutely love reading again and again.

"I Don't Want to be Quiet!" by Laura Ellen Anderson is out now, published by Bloomsbury (kindly supplied for review).
