Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With prose as raucous as its protagonist, Smith's (Santa Knows) tall tale introduces a boy who at birth "cried so loud.... that the pecans fell from the pecan trees and the prickly pear cacti sprouted more needles." Named Holler Loudly, the boy does just that as he ages, with explosive results, as depicted in Gott's (Dino-Baseball) funky, hyperbolic cartoons. Screeching "Yippee Ti Yi Yo! I love math!" the boy creates chaos in his classroom ("Mr. Smarty's chalk burst into dust and the students ducked for cover"). He laments getting tossed out of a movie theater, ruining a fishing trip with his grand­father, and causing a stampede that closes down the state fair. When the entire town scolds him at an outdoor concert, Holler hushes up and discovers that "Quiet times... could be just fine." But not always: his vociferousness saves the day when he hollers at an approaching twister and is "so absolutely, positively, knee-shakin', earth-quakin' LOUD that the tornado blew into a thousand sweet teeny breezy breezes--not one with an ounce of sass." This effervescent collaboration, however, has sass aplenty. Ages 3–5. (Nov.)
Children's Literature - Anita Barnes Lowen
When Holler Loudly was a baby, he cried so loud the pecans fell from the pecan trees, the turkey vultures dropped their feathers and all the hound dogs in the county tossed back their heads and bayed. His parents tried to get Holler to speak quietly. They said "hush" nicely. They said "hush" sternly. They shouted "hush." But nothing worked. In school his classmates said he was "annoying" and he often missed recess because his loud voice was so disruptive. At the movies, the usher said Holler had to go. He ruined the fishing trip with Gramps when his loud voice tipped the boat and scared all the catfish away. At the state fair, he created a disaster when his loud voice stampeded all the livestock. And when the barbershop quartet began to sing, Holler's yelling and hollering had the whole town scolding him. Finally Holler hushed and listened to the music and realized that when he was quiet, he could listen better. "Quiet times...could be just fine." But when Holler spotted a tornado headed for town, he knew for sure there were also times to be loud. Holler's bellow was so earth-quakin' loud, the tornado broke into a thousand teeny breezes and the town was saved. Now Holler was not only the loudest boy ever, he was a hero! Colorful illustrations perfectly capture the excitement and the humor of this lively tall tale. A perfect choice to read aloud in a classroom with a student (or two) who needs a reminder about "inside" and "outside" voices. Reviewer: Anita Barnes Lowen
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—His exceptionally loud voice has always posed a problem for Holler, the young son of the Loudly family. His parents, teachers, friends, and the townspeople have hushed and shushed him all his life, but to no avail. Loudness just comes naturally to him as it has to others of his line, every several generations. Getting kicked out of a movie theater, ruining a day of fishing with Gramps, and scattering all the animals at the state fair's hog-calling contest finally convince him to settle down and understand that being quiet and listening can be quite pleasant. However, when a tornado threatens his town, Holler decides there are times to be quiet and times that require LOUD. And that's when he takes action; he shouts down that durned tornado and breaks it up into harmless bits of breezes, finally putting his gift to good use. This original tall tale with its highly energetic, brightly colored illustrations has expressive typeface showing the word "LOUD" repeatedly in bold capital letters. Readers as well as listeners will have fun with this animated story, and the Southwestern twang will just come naturally.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews

Every few generations a Loudly baby is born loud, and Holler is one of the lucky (?) ones. Though everyone tells him to "Hush!" it's no use. When he hollers, "Yippee Ti Yi Yo! I Love Math!" his teacher Mr. Smarty's chalk "burst[s] into dust." When he goes to hear Gramps in the barbershop quartet, he hollers so loudly the entire town admonishes him to"HUSH!" He finally does hush and the quartet sings on, allowing Holler to understand that he can hear better— "[q]uiet times... could be just fine." When a tornado roars into town, though, Holler does what he does best, blowing it "into a thousand teeny tiny breezy" pieces and saving the town. This original Southwestern tall tale has an easy rhythm, and repeated phrases and playful type make reading aloud a pleasure. The exuberant, smooth-edged illustrations feature exaggerated, open mouths (especially Holler's) and visually emphasize the chaos-inducing effects of his voice; the face-off with the anthropomorphized tornado is especially effective. A rambunctious, can't-lose read-aloud no one will want to hush. (Picture book. 3-6)

    This is a really fun book! My 3 year old grandson loves it. We borrowed it from the library and when I saw how much he loved it, I came here to try and order it. What the heck! Why is this book so expensive?
