Review quote

Praise for "Tumford's Rude Noises" "This book will surely entertain and reassure all the little Tumfords out there--cats and toddlers! Not to be missed." --"School Library Journal""Even more of a draw than the original." --"Publishers Weekly""The photo-collage illustrations are large and expressive--much like Tumford--and will tug on heartstrings and amuse in equal measure." --"Booklist""Kitty cat (and human boy stand-in) Tumford Stoutt learns a lesson about rude noises. This Tuesday, Sweet Apple Green is in for a ruckus. Tum beats his drum. He makes bubbles in his dish. He burps and giggles at the table. His parents aren't pleased, but Tum doesn't care. He likes the attention. Then in front of the Sweet Apple Guild, Tum does the unforgivable: toots the patootie trumpet. Mom and Dad put him in timeout. With a little help from readers, Tum learns not all attention is good." --"Kirkus Reviews "show more
