Overview

Peter goes off to the village wise man to find out what he could do about his noisy house. It seemed like a simple enough problem at the beginning, but more and more complications set in—in the forms of a donkey, a sheep, and a cow, to name a few, until it looked as though an entire farm had come to life right there in Peter’s house!

“This is a funny book, a very funny book.”—Publishers Weekly “The too-crowded house of a familiar old tale becomes a too noisy house in this entertaining picture-book story.”—Booklist

    Great for the nearly independent reader

    This is a great book for the tentative reader. Each page builds on the page before reenforcing new words. It still manages to be fun for parent and child at least for the first 20 or so readings.
