Jessica Harper is an actor and singer-songwriter whose CDs of children's music have Won many honors, including the Parents' Choice Gold, Oppenheim Platinum, and NAPPA awards. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two daughters, Nora and Elizabeth.From Publishers Weekly:
The siblings who previously offered I Don't Want to Chase the Cat Today here create a jaunty picture-book adaptation of one of Harper's children's songs. "Crash! Bang! Crash! Bang! Boom! Something's going on in Nora's room!" begins this zippy flight of imagination. While Mom tends to two younger siblings, strange and very loud sounds emanate from behind Nora's bedroom door in a rollicking verse. All the while, Mom, the babies and the family dog envision what could be causing all the ruckus: "Sounds like hippos at a hippo hop./ Or when you pick up a piano and you let it drop./ / Like London Bridge is really falling down!/ Or a couple of giants are sitting on a town!" At book's end, when Nora's mother investigates, nothing is amiss. Readers are privy to the joke though, thanks to duPont's cheery slightly stylized artwork featuring muted ochre, pumpkin and melon tones with a bold outline. She shows a grinning Nora in a room filled with toy versions of everything mentioned in the previously imagined scenarios. This bouncy, fun-to-read-aloud outing may well encourage readers to seek out Harper's Nora's Room recording. Ages 3-8.
