What’s That Noise? by Naomi Howarth

Magnus the Arctic seal wakes up one morning, puzzled by a strange sound. What's that noise? Hare, Owl, Fox and Bear don't have any idea.  Magnus goes to investigate; through the frosty forest, on top of the snowy rocks, across the melting glacier and by the icy river, but still no idea!

Walrus has an idea. Magnus dives into the freezing ocean and eats all the little shrimps he can find. The sound stops, well for while... but what is that rumbling sound?

A beautifully illustrated picture book of animals from the polar regions. Arctic hares, polar bears, Arctic Fox and Walrus.

Naomi Howarth, author and illustrator creates books which capture the imagination and tell stories of our world through the animals she bring into the books. In 2015, she was shortlisted for the Waterstones' Book Prize and she has exhibited work in National Gallery of Scotland.

Otter-Barry Books are the publishers and What's that Noise? is definitely a book that children will love and it will make a difference to their understanding of the world around them.
