KIRKUS REVIEW

The joys of hearing familiar names and lovely satisfying sounds mark the constant appeal of the Noisy Books, and the richly colored, striking illustrations by Leonard Weisgard contribute to the buoyant confusion of clatters, rustles and booms. Little Muffin, the dog, was introduced to summer as he heard the birds, the clippety clop of the horse, the ding dong dingle of the cow bells, the jug a rum of the frogs and all the symphony of the countryside, ending with the giant rumble of a thunderstorm. Noises unexplained tease the young listener on to the next page, the colored text blends in shape and tint with the handsome design, and the whole production is an exhilarating sense experience.
