Description

A read-aloud (shout-aloud?) comedy from Malachy Doyle, boldly illustrated by Ed Vere, reminds us there's no place like home -- no matter how noisy. The Bungles sure are a large and noisy bunch! So noisy that Sam, the middle Bungle, has no room to think and is desperate to escape his booming, twooting, banging, clanging family. So off he wanders into the woods for some peace and quiet. Deeper and deeper he goes, until . . . eek! What's that climbing up his pant leg? Beek! What is flapping around his face? Eeky-beek! What could be sliding down his neck? HELP! Will he ever again hear the comforting cacophony of his own Bungle clan?

Review quote

Doyle's story is simple--quiet Sam is overwhelmed by his big, noisy family--yet the writer's exuberant, Gaelic-tinged wordplay and Vere's edgy visuals give it real excitement.
--Publishers Weekly Sam is bombarded by noise in Doyle's captivatingly onomatopoeic free verse. Vere illustrates sound as colorful bubbles and bursts that issue forth from each family member. . .Quiet thinkers will enjoy meeting a character like themselves.
--Kirkus Reviews With its exuberant language and quirky characters, this story is a fun addition to most collections.
--School Library Journal European artist Vere's hand-drawn and digitally colored illustrations that are the eye-catcher. The odd little creatures, with their saucepan-huge eyes and tufted ears, will charm kids into joining the fun.--
