“Following his Newbery Medal-winning Joyful Noise, Fleischman offers another collection of beautifully orchestrated, spirited poems for many voices.” — Booklist
These rousing, rib-tickling poems demand the joy of reading aloud. Settle back and chant “The Quiet Evenings Here,” as Grandma rocks, the clock tick-tocks, and no one cares a hoot for the world outside. Delight in “Seventh-Grade Soap Opera,” alive with hearsay about who’s holding hands with whom. This innovative book weaves a tapestry of rhythm that will have readers of all ages sounding off.
