9780060218522: Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices (A Charlotte Zolotow book)

Written to be read aloud by two voices -- sometimes alternating, sometimes simultaneous -- here is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrate the insect world, from the short life of the mayfly to the love song of the book louse. Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise. In this remarkable volume of poetry for two voices, a companion to "I Am Phoenix, "Paul Fleischman verbally re-creates the "Booming/boisterios/joyful noise" of insects. The poems resound with the pulse of the cicada and the drone of the honeybee. Eric Beddows's vibrant drawings send each insect soaring, spinning, or creeping off the page in its own unique way. Paul Fleischman has created not only a clear and fascinating guide to the insect world -- from chrysalid butterflies to whirligig beetles -- but an exultant celebration of life.

Product Description:

A collection of poems describing the characteristics and activities of a variety of insects.

Review:

"A companion to I Am Phoenix, this marvelous, lyrical evocation of the insect world demands accolades. With subjects ranging from grasshoppers to butterflies, there is variety in tone, mood, and theme. There are fourteen poems in the handsomely designed volume, with wonderfully interpretive illustrations. Each selection is a gem, polished to perfection."--"H."
