Quiet!

Overview

The hyena was laughing. Laughing like hyenas do.

Overview

A silly story about letting a lion cub take his nap. With a rollicking text and bright, humorous illustrations, QUIET! makes for an infectiously fun bedtime read.

"Chuckling and chortling, sniggering and snickering.
The hyena was laughing. Laughing like hyenas do.
But nobody knew what was so funny. 'Quiet!' said Papa Lion, as loud as he dared, in case his son was still sleeping."
Mama and Papa Lion don't want any of the animals in the jungle to wake up Baby Leo while he takes his morning nap. As king of the animals, Papa Lion tells them that he will eat up any creature who makes too much noise. As the day passes, Papa Lion gets hungrier and hungrier, but no one is loud enough to wake up Baby Leo until, an unexpected noisemaker rumbles onto the scene!

When Papa Lion threatens to eat any jungle animal who wakes Baby Leo from his nap, he finds himself getting very hungry.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When Baby Leo wants to take a nap, it is Papa Lion who makes certain that the entire jungle quiets down under threat of being gobbled up for disturbing the baby. The silence lasts for only a short time. Typical jungle disturbances happen time and again during naptime, but each time Baby Leo sleeps on and Papa Lion is left without a snack. As Papa Lion's frustration grows with each outburst so do his hunger pangs. Young children will love the rhythmic language used to describe the noises the various animals make. They will also delight in predicting who it is that finally wakes up Baby Leo. Vibrant, comical illustrations bring the jungle to life in this fun read-aloud. 2003, Orchard Books/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 6.
— Trina Heidt
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-The jungle is a noisy place, and Mama Lion is worried that Baby Leo will not be able to take his nap. She implores Papa Lion to help with this dilemma. He puffs out his chest, stands up tall, and roars, "Quiet!" After the baby falls asleep, he warns the jungle animals, "If any of you makes a noise, and wakes up Leo, I will gobble you up." At first, all of the creatures are silent, but then two parrots caw and squeak, a hyena chuckles and chortles, some monkeys screech and chatter, and a hippo splashes and squelches. However, none of these outbursts is loud enough to disturb the baby, and the disappointed lion finds himself growing very hungry. When Papa's stomach begins to rumble and growl, "Loud as a banging drum," Leo wakes up crying, and the king of the jungle faces his angry wife and sheepishly takes responsibility. The text is simple and descriptive and the use of repetition and rhythmic language make the story perfect for sharing aloud. The colorful cartoon artwork is packed with humorous details. Papa's facial expressions, which range from pompous to grumpy to embarrassed, are a hoot. An energetic, lighthearted tale that will have children roaring with laughter.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
