What’s that Terrible Growl?

We rated this book:


A little boy is playing quietly at the opening of this book, and he hears a growling sound. What can it be, he wonders. Could it be a bear? What would it want? While the boy is eating his dinner, he hears that growl again. Could it be a terrible lion? What would it want? Then, as he is reading a book, he hears the growl again. And then another. While he puts on his pajamas, another. When he is brushing his teeth, more growls. And with each growl, the boy’s imagination grows and the ideas become more and more outrageous. But, of course, there is a perfectly good answer to this, and youngsters will have a lot of fun along the way guessing what might be making that sound and what it wants.

Author A. H. Benjamin has quite an imagination himself coming up with the ideas a little child might conjure up when hearing a strange sound in this very spare text. Illustrator Merel Eycherman has a delightful style, and there are lots of fun details in the illustrations to hold young listeners’ interest as the pages are turned. This is a cute book.
