Hippos bellow, squirrels chitter, and hyenas guffaw in this counting book of animal noises. Wadsworth and Needham count off animals from 1—20, with a paragraph on each: what 15 shrieking gulls eat, when 2 roosters crow, and why 11 slithering snakes flick their tongues in and out and hiss. For the most part, animals are portrayed in realistically sized groups, e.g., a single tiger, but 18 crows. The large realistic illustrations bring preschoolers up close to animals such as tigers and snakes without making the creatures appear too intimidating. Sound effects are included for each animal, so even toddlers will enjoy the counting and the racket. (Picture book. 3-8)
