DT Bizarre Book Contest: Noisy Nora

Title: Noisy Nora
Author/Illustrator: Rosemary Wells
Reviewed by: Maya

I know this book from my own childhood, but I think this is one I'll be skipping with my babe. Or maybe not. Anyway, it's about a rather neglected child/mouse named Nora.

"Quiet said her father, hush said her mum. 'Nora,' said her sister, 'Why are you so dumb?'"

I don't think they make books like this anymore--now the mouse would go to therapy--but seriously, this book teaches you that you can guilt-trip your family. Noisy Nora is only noticed when she's gone. So if you want attention, run away from your parents, they might notice you're not around.

[ed note: it seems Amazon agrees with you; they say it's unavailable.]
