Junior the giraffe is just looking for a nice quiet place to read his book.

But there is one problem (actually, five problems): Junior’s brothers and sisters are the noisiest giraffes in the jungle! Whether it’s band practice, family singalongs or just really loud burping, Junior can’t escape the noise of his sonorous siblings! In an act of desperation, he finally discovers the one thing that will keep them quiet: reading his book out loud.

Written and illustrated by award-winning author Russ Willms, Quiet, Please! is sure to become a favorite of any young bibliophile who enjoys a good book and a peaceful place to read it.

“A funny little story...will captivate a variety of audiences. Willms’ carefree, whimsical...skill shines through in his ability to make six would-be identical giraffes become distinctively different with both obvious and subtle details. Recommended.”
