Publisher's Summary

Grasshoppers, waterstriders, and fireflies light up the pages of this rib-tickling book of poetry for two voices. Written as spirited duets, the poems ring with the love songs of book lice, the serenades of moths, and a choir of cicadas. Each one is a treat, filled with busy insect life. In addition to the voices of these frisky critters, there are also fascinating tidbits about their lives and habits. The digger wasp lays eggs underground, musing that it will never see their generation. Joyful Noise is a marvelous concoction of music and imagery, sound and sense, brilliantly narrated by four of Recorded Books, Inc.’s most gifted readers. Paul Fleischman, an award-winning author of children’s books, has received critical acclaim for this collection of poems.

Joyful Noise is an ALA Notable Children’s Book, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and a Newbery Medal Winner. It won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction/Poetry, it was selected for The Horn Book Fanfare Honor List, and was designated a Notable Children’s Trade Book in the Language Arts by the NCTE.
