From the Publisher
When Sam laughs, Sam laughs loudly. When Sam cries, Sam cries loudly. But while visiting his aunt Tillie in the city, Sam is surprised to discover that some people--in fact, many people--hold in their feelings. Can Sam survive a week with Aunt Tillie, a week when he is often told to "hush"?

From Our Editors
Sam is loud. When he laughs, it’s not a chortle or a giggle; it’s a big guffaw. When he cries, he doesn’t whimper or sniffle; he wails. Sam never holds back his feelings, so when he spends a week with his aunt, he’s shocked that she does. Aunt Tillie also wants Sam to keep his feelings toned down too but some things you just can’t bottle up. Maybe Sam’s aunt can learn something from the outgoing little boy in The Loudness Of Sam by James Proimos.
