The latest installment in Eileen's Browne's acclaimed Handa series is a warm, funny story about night time fears with a cast of nocturnal animals and an Kenyan setting.
When Handa has a sleepover with her friend Akeyo, the girls are allowed to spend the night in a little hut near the house. They’re excited to be on their own, but as they get ready for bed, Handa feels more and more nervous. She keeps hearing things – strange snorts, chitter chattering, a big thud. Akeyo says it’s only her noisy family, but on the opposite page the reader sees the nocturnal animals who are really making the noise – and while some of them are familiar, others are very peculiar-looking indeed! With rich, night-time illustrations, sound effects, and plenty of curious animals, Handa’s Noisy Night demands to be read aloud and shared – whether in the classroom or tucked up in bed at home.
This beautiful hardback book is a perfect bedtime read. Like Handa's surprise it follows a pattern of featuring different animals in a fun and interesting way which keep little ones coming back for more. It's one you will be reading again and again.
