About Penelope is a T. rex, and she's very good at it. She also likes to rock out on guitar! With the school talent show coming up, Penelope can't wait to perform for her classmates. But sharing who you are can be show-stoppingly scary, especially when… Norman is a porcupine. Mildred is a tree. Norman and Mildred are best friends. Just the two of them. But when a surprise pops up, life will never be the same again. In a case of mistaken identity gone awry, Bruce’s family gets an extra dose of fun when Bruce’s look-alike cousin Kevin comes for a visit. Ryan T. Higgins's Bruce gets a whole new audience in this Level 1 reader. This brand new tale captures the humor of the Mother Bruce picturebook series while helping children transition from listening to books read aloud to reading a story… Ruth the bunny is excited to share the smelly springtime smells of spring with Bruce! But what will Bruce think of all that stink? This pint-sized LITTLE BRUCE BOOK is perfect for fans of the Mother Bruce board books. Tigers love flowers and apples and books . . . but it’s hard to love flowers and apples and books when there might be WORMS inside?!

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3—Rupert the mouse is excited to finally have the opportunity to create his very own book. He decides that it will be wordless, since wordless books are "very artistic." Rupert cannot wait to get started. However, his dream project is interrupted by two well-meaning but extremely chatty little friends. They are so excited to offer Rupert ideas that they do not even realize that they are filling up the book with words! Rupert becomes increasingly frustrated as things quickly spin out of control. Adding animals to the story? Superheroes? A chain saw? Rupert is flabbergasted! Will his wordless picture book ever come to fruition? Set in the forest, with mice as main characters, this picture book is sure to amuse. The text, appearing in a large, handwritten font and in speech bubbles, is well spaced and easy to read. The giggle-inducing conversations among the characters are fast-paced and witty. The illustrations are large and comical, inviting readers to fully experience the range of emotions displayed by the characters. VERDICT This hilarious and fun read-aloud will be a hit at storytime. Kids will be laughing out loud.—Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE --This text refers to the hardcover edition.


"Be Quiet! will delight readers... Clever hilarity and downright silliness Ryan T. Higgins's laugh-out-loud picture book about picture books." --Shelf-Awareness

* "Entertainment gold. The story's backdrops are as polished as the characters. Higgins breathes emotional life into his characters, both visually and verbally, and his smart, laugh-out-loud comedy is expertly paced." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
