Ruth Green


The hero of Noisy Neighbors is a tired and grumpy snail who is searching for some peace and quiet. Wherever he goes he bumps into his neighbors–chirping sparrows, singing foxes, hooting owls, quacking ducks, and buzzing bees–each noisier than the last! In the end he decides to invite all his neighbors to a party, where they make lots of noise and have so much fun they get tired out and fall asleep. At last the snail can get some peace!
This amusing story is illustrated with the colorful screen prints that have made Ruth Green one of the leading illustrators of her generation. The different animal characters are framed within decorative branches and flowers, the prints’ bold colors creating striking contrasts as each page is turned.
