Gobble Growl Grunt
Peter Spier ~ 1971
Here's one of those books my animal-loving son can spend 30 minutes looking through, curled up in the egg chair in his room. Wordless except for many, many, many written sounds, it's great for a first reader to practice guttural noises. Though there is some unspoken drama pitting a mouse against every other creature in the animal kingdom, the plot is mainly about animals and the noises they make. Filled with page after page after page of fabulous, detailed Spier drawings, there's always something new to find. Though, my son is highly perturbed that they label a baby swan as a gosling. (Tsk, tsk.)
Love, love, love Peter Spier. A must-have for any budding zoologist.
