‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Whatever is that noise? Aaahhh! The highest mountain in the world has collapsed; where once there were two poles – north and south – now there is a middle pole. A loud and terrible noise is permeating the whole planet. It is so loud that nobody can hear themselves think and it’s causing chaos and confusion. Is it a strange noise from outer space? Is someone playing a saxophone out of tune? Has a meteor crashed into a trombone factory? Just what is making that terrible racket? Everyone is in for a big surprise when the source of the noise is discovered!
This witty picture book is great fun. Brazilian illustrator and graphic designer Guilherme Karsten has used a mixed media of paint, crayon and collage packed full of detail creating a hilariously ‘loud’ story.
