Be Quiet, Mike!

by Leslie Patricelli

Candlewick Press | August 23, 2011 | Picture Books

Be Quiet, Mike! is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Digga-digga-digga-digga, zat, zoom, crash! Leslie Patricelli's lovable (but noisy!) new character finds an ingenious way to create a sound all his own.

Even before he was born, Mike started drumming. Kick! Thump! Pow! Wherever he goes, his rhythms sing: swis, thak, go his books; bang, clank, goes the trash can; tap, tap, go his pencils; and "BE QUIET, MIKE!" yells everyone around him. But one day Mike sees a drum set in a store window-- and puts his hands-on talents to work in a most impressive way. W ith the bold graphic style and clever details her readers love, Leslie Patricelli strikes a cymbal for active, high-energy little monkeys everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very fun book i borrowed this book from the library for my 3 yo son... & he loves it! he wants me to read it to him every time he goes to bed. it is a good book for him to familiarize some words since he "reads" most of the words that are in bold letters by himself (like the "be quiet, mike" part). the sound effects made by monkey mike are fun & keep him glued to the story. now i am looking online to purchase the book!

Editorial Reviews

Patricelli's bright acrylic pictures are the definition of upbeat and bouncy, and she gives the irrepressible, well-meaning Mike unexpected depth and poignancy.
—Publishers Weekly

A marvelous model of a family ultimately nurturing the member who marches to his own beat.
