A Noisy Counting Book

Pamela Duncan Edwards

Poor little lion cub! All he wants is someone to play with, but he is simply too noisy. As the little lion cub Roars his way across the grassland, young picture-book readers can count the African animals, identify them by color...and Roars along too. This rollicking, Roaring poem, about a rambunctious little lion cub, is a collaboration of the talented author and illustrator team Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole.


"...the artwork strikes a satisfying balance between cartooning and naturalism." —Publishers Weekly

"The pencil and acrylic paint illustrations are full of humor and really do complement the story. It is fascinating how Henry Cole skill gives the unassuming blue lizards and submerged green crocodiles expressions and a bit of personality." —Childrens Literature

"Cartoon illustrations rendered in acrylics and colored pencil bring the setting and characters to life, beginning with the little cub's pride of lions and ending with a full-spread stampede of safari animals. A roaring good time." —School Library Journal
