" A comedic look at bookmaking centered around Rupert the Mouse's vision of creating a wordless book. Two chatty mice friends want to help, but they fill the book with well-meaning nonsense based on their limited understanding of sophisticated picture book terminology.Mixed media illustrations, PreK-2. " said.

" This would be a great read-aloud book because a good reader could create three really fun voices for the 3 central characters. In addition, it is one of those clever books that can attract the interest of adults as well as children, kind of like a good cartoon. There are a few jokes that only an adult would understand, but even the youngest child would still laugh at them. The illustrations are professional, clear, funny and help to tell the story. " said.

" Want a book to brighten your day? Find a copy of Be Quiet! and prepare yourself for laughter. Rupert is thrilled that he will finally be the one to design a picture book and he decides it will be a wordless book - a visually stimulating wordless book! But Thistle and Nibbs just don't quite share the vision. Though they certainly have a LOT of ideas which are not necessarily helpful and definitely not wordless. " said.

" This book cracked me up! I will use it and probably purchase it for my son. One mouse has it in his mind that he will create a wordless book. That book will have wonderful illustrations and everyone will love it. However, he has two friends that just cannot stop talking about how brilliant of an idea this wordless book is. You will fall in love with all three mice and laugh at their antics and dialogue. Recommended Purchase. Preschool through 2nd grade. " said.

"This book is very funny and I know there will be lots of giggles from young readers. Rupert is very excited to be making his own wordless picture book. Wordless picture books "are very artistic." But then his chatty friends come along, and he has a difficult time getting them to stop talking and take his project seriously. This will be a favorite in classroom libraries. Note to teachers and parents choosing this as a read aloud: there is some potty humor in this book. Be careful if you're sensitive to that." said.

"Higgins hits another homer with this one. He returns to the woods, but this time the three squatting mice from Hotel Bruce are the stars. Arty Rupert wants to make a statement with a sophisticated wordless book in which the art will astound. His two talkative sidekicks can't keep their yaps shut and hilarity ensues. There's even cameo appearances by Bruce and a few furry and feathered friends from Mother Bruce and Hotel Bruce. Drink plenty of water and have some lozenges on hand because this book begs to be EMOTED! Silly fun bound to receive lots of "Read it again!" requests." said.

"A winner with my kids at home and a large group (90+) of elementary-aged summer campers, so there's really no other recommendation necessary. Ryan T. Higgins provides animated, colorful illustrations with beautiful details and no wasted space. The story begins on the cover and doesn't stop for nothing, not even the endpapers, publishing info, or title page. The dialogue pacing makes reading aloud a pleasure. Really though, the humor just shines, incorporating potty jokes, visual gags, and word play. The grumpy vs happy-go-lucky dynamic comes off perfectly.

Best moment for laughs: the onomatopoeia joke.
" said.

"This hit is a follow up by the author and illustrator of the popular Mother Bruce and Hotel Bruce books, except this time it focuses on the mice in the story rather than Bruce the Bear! Perhaps most striking about the book is the amazing attention to detail in these full page colorful illustrations. The attention to detail is astounding. This is the story of a mouse who wants to write a book with no words, but he struggles to complete this task when his two mice friends show up and have difficulty staying quiet! Kids will laugh at the frustration the "author" mouse feels when he can't get any peace and quiet, and parents will feel validated by the struggle as well! A beautiful book, and funny for parents and kids alike.
