HOLLER LOUDLY, by Cynthia Leitich Smith, ill. by Barry Gott (Dutton, Nov. 2010).
Holler Loudly has a voice as big as the Southwestern sky, and everywhere he goes people tell him to "Hush!" From math class to the movies and even the state fair, Holler's LOUD voice just keeps getting on people's nerves. But Holler can't help himself--being loud is who he is!
Will Holler ever find a way to let loose his voice--without getting into trouble?
We were delighted to recently receive ARCs and cover art for Cyn's forthcoming picture book, HOLLER LOUDLY. It's a tall tale about a very loud boy who is always told to hush but learns that sometimes, it's more than okay to be LOUD. Drawings are bright and bold, evocative of the humor and tall-talish aspects of the text.
