Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A playful, rollicking romp from the sister team that created I'm Not Going to Chase the Cat Today! (HarperCollins, 2000). "Crash! Bang! Crash! Bang! Boom! Something's going on in Nora's room-." Rhyming text with a beat speculates on what the commotion is all about. Colorful, imaginative illustrations with humorous details depict the possible happenings, such as a bear dancing with a moose and "a couple of gorillas playing duck, duck, duck-Goose!" Even the text fonts bounce along on the pages. A musical version of this story is found on Harper's CD Nora's Room (Alacazam, 1996). Pair this title with Rosemary Wells's Noisy Nora (Viking, 1999) for a boisterous storytime.-Debbie Stewart, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Sisters Harper and duPont team up once again (I'm Not Going to Chase the Cat Today!, 2000) to create a stridently silly tale to tickle funnybones. A cacophonous ruckus emanating from a young girl's room leads her mother to ponder what exactly is going on behind that closed door. Relayed in jaunty rhymes, parent, canine, and even the infant twins provide a hilarious commentary on the root cause of all that uproar. The absurdities escalate, as each new suggestion is more outrageous than the last: dancing bears, hopping hippos, and playful gorillas are all offered up as plausible sources. "Sounds like a rodeo right upstairs. Or a bunch of rhinos playing musical chairs!" However, when Nora's mother, unable to stand the suspense any longer, asks her what's going on, a demure Nora offers that classic response: "Oh, nothing." And the picture shows all of those possible culprits in their stuffed forms. The format of this romp is more akin to a comic strip than a traditional picture book, with the text contained within thought bubbles above various characters' heads. DuPont's wacky illustrations suit the offbeat tale and free-spirited Nora just fine; amidst pictures of two-stepping elephants and waltzing behemoths, a gleeful Nora can be discovered cutting loose. Loads of fun to read aloud—the text and art just beg for exaggerated theatrics on the reader's part: this is one rollicking ride. (Picture book. 3-8)
ALA Booklist
“…high-spirited full-color illustrations flesh out the zany musings ….”

    My Daughter's Favorite Book!

    We were lucky enough to buy this book when it first came out. Ten years later, it is now a CLASSIC in our family's life, and one of the few childrens' books from her childhood that my now teenage daughter keeps on her bookshelf.
    Based on the title song from the children's muscial album "Nora's Room", this book is brightly illustrated and really fun to read out loud (with lots of sound effects we make!) to kids at any time. And I certainly recommned the CD too - which we listened to every time we were in the car for almost two years straight!
