A silly, noisy bedtime book that will have readers squealing, croaking, and laughing along before settling down for a quiet night's sleep!


It's time for bed, but one little mouse just can't get to sleep—it's TOO QUIET! However, the night is actually full of sounds, from the croak of the bullfrog to the howl of a coyote on a distant hill. As the rhythmic symphony of nighttime noises build in this rollicking read-aloud, the mouse starts to wonder whether he wouldn't like a little MORE quiet.


  • From the bestselling author of the Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site series
  • Sweet illustrations by renowned artist Tony Fucile
  • A hilarious read-aloud perfect for bedtime or story time


Little readers will delight in the humor and interactivity of It’s So Quiet—which concludes by encouraging an appreciation of nighttime’s soothing quiet.


"This uproarious offering, narrated in jaunty rhymes, will evoke lots of laughter. Kids will love repeating the sound effects in loud voices and may be inspired to create their own versions of animal sounds and household squeaks and creaks. The appealing, energetic illustrations, set against mostly dark backgrounds, feature textured, frequently off-kilter lines that add and amplify energy." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
