The Very Noisy Baby Sound Book: with 5 great animal sounds!

by Alison Lester

The Very Noisy Baby certainly makes a lot of noise!

She could bellow like a buffalo
And roar like a lion
And howl like a wolf for a very long time.

The baby loves to make all kinds of sounds. She’s really very loud.
But when some animals in the town go missing, can the very noisy baby help?

Hear her in action in this magical interactive sound book from Australia’s most loved picture-book creator.
