The Very Noisy Baby | Board Book Reformat

by Alison Lester

‘In a little pink house on the edge of the town
lived a baby who made some unusual sounds.
She could bellow like a buffalo, roar like a lion,
and howl like a wolf for a very long time.’

The baby certainly makes a lot of noise, but can she help when some animals go missing?

Find out in this rollicking story, full of action and fun, from a much-loved picture-book creator.

This special lift-the-flap edition will delight little ones as they lift the flaps to discover who is making all the noise.

In a career spanning decades, Alison Lester has written many books, and won several prestigious awards including the 2005 CBCA Picture Book of the Year Award for Are We There Yet? and the 2012 CBCA Eve Pownall Award for Information Books for One Small Island and in 2018 The Very Noisy Baby was named a CBCA Honour Book for Early Childhood Book of the Year. Alison was the Australian inaugural Children’s Laureate from 2011 to 2013.
