From Library Staff

A child is woken up by a strange noise above his head, what could it be? In this book, readers travel up a busy apartment building and guess what each floor's residents are up to. A fun and simple book about sound effects and bedtime.
Themes: noises, night time, urban living, apartment buildings... Read More »

A rollicking, rhyming and riotously noisy night descends on a very tall building. Starting on the ground floor, each resident hears another making a noise above their heads. But what happens when they reach the top floor?

A fun, colourful, rhyming, good read-aloud picture book for storytime, with children trying to guess who - or what - are making different sounds.

The layout and illustrations make this a keeper, but like all Mac Barnett books, it reads like it was written on the spot by Zack Morris.

guess what is making this sound... it is interesting, and cute, but a crow in an apartment? it's not very true to life. Good for matching sounds to who might be making them though.

In the same vein as "Brown Bear Brown Bear" but sillier, and with great clues as to what will be found when the page is turned, this will be a storytime hit for sure! I especially appreciated that all the noises rhymed...

Wow, I loved this one from the second I opened it up, even the orientation of the book plays a part in telling this fun story. I loved the rhyming on each page and thought that even though every scene changed page by page, all of the characters had a story to tell. Would highly recommend!
