What's That Noise?
by Isabel Minhos Martins
Age Range: Under_5
Portuguese duo Isabelle Minhós Martins and Madalena Matoso have written and illustrated another interactive book to add to their series. Full of visual puzzles on every page it will certainly keep children guessing.
‘Can you hear that noise?
Someone in this book is calling you …
Who could it be?
Follow the trail to discover who it is.’
With the clever use of shapes and instructions on large sturdy pages readers can tell the story using their fingers, eyes, ears and nose. Each page opens with instructions of what to do and where to go. Whether it is tiptoeing through an empty forest, across a cold river, braving a terrible storm, finding an apple in a tree or discovering a little worm, there is plenty to occupy a child here.
A mix of different sized fonts enhance the text together with Matoso's striking illustrations which are dominated by six strong colours – red, yellow, blue, black, green and white. What’s That Noise? is an ideal activity book that will keep young children amused for hours.
