Editorial Reviews

Simple, rhythmic words and bright, clear acrylic pictures celebrate the "big happy racket" of city sounds and movements, from the exciting "Clonk! Bonk! Bash!" of a demolition site to the "eeeee-o" of an ambulance. In addition to the roaring of machines, there are smaller noises--the swishing of windshield wipers in the rain, the thump of bundled newspapers landing on the street, and church bells bing-bonging slow, sad songs. As with Paul Stickland's Trucks (2005), this book will make a good read-aloud; children will want to join in and act out the pulsing images of the people that they see on the pages. Hazel Rochman
