Be Quiet! is a wordless picture book. At least, Rupert the mouse is thinks it is supposed to be one. His friends, Nibbs and Thistle, love the idea. They think it should be a visually stimulating book, filled with plenty of strong-but-silent characters. The trouble is this: they just can’t stop talking about it.
In actuality, this book is filled with lots and lots of words – and just as much fun. Nibbs and Thistle might be mice, but I am sure everyone will be able to visualize plenty of folks (and maybe even themselves) in their places. The illustrations add to the entertainment. Be sure to check out the end papers when reading this book. It will provide plenty of amusement for both the reader and the listener.
