Read full description of the books The Noisy Book Treasury:From a jangling phone to a gentle breeze, these stories explore sounds both sharp and subtle. Caldecott award winners Margaret Wise Brown — author of the childhood classic Goodnight Moon — and illustrator Leonard Weisgard present three poetic and winsomely illustrated tales that introduce young readers to the everyday wonders of sound.
The Noisy Book explores a world of hissing radiators and buzzing flies through the ears of Muffin, a little dog with bandaged eyes. In The Indoor Noisy Book, Muffin listens from his room at the top of the stairs to a sweeping broom, rattling silverware, a gushing faucet, and other household sounds. And in The Quiet Noisy Book, Muffin hears the softest sounds of all, from a butterfly unfolding its wings to an early bird catching a worm.
Read information about the authorMargaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.
Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading.
She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them.
She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper.
Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.
