What's That Strange Noise?
In this whimsical, make-believe story, animals are identified one-by-one by their sounds as a four-year-old seeks permission for them to ride with her in the backseat of Grandma's car. Soon they are stuffed into the car and out the sunroof as the car continues down the road. The suggested age range for readers: pre-school - 2nd grade
