KIRKUS REVIEW

We loved this one, and prophesy that the youngsters will too. An original idea, this of the little woman who had lived in the midst of city noises and couldn't bear the country and its quiet until she collected a new lot of noises. There was a cow first, then a dog, a duck, a rooster and a hen, a pig (this picture appealed to me particularly), even a rattly old car with a noisy horn. And still it wasn't enough until she found that two small boys supplied all the noise she wanted. The Robert Lawson pictures—simple line drawings—are just right for the text.
