Maurice Pledger’s stunning artwork is brought to life with authentic animal sounds and adorable pop-ups. Noisy Nature: On the Farm delights children for hours on end with five pop-up panoramas that include a fluffy yellow duckling who calls out quack, quack, quack; a hungry calf who munches grass and moos; a playful piglet who snuffles in the pen, then oinks and squeals; a gentle lamb who skips and leaps and calls out baa, baa; and a brown foal who bounds along and neighs!
