Handa’s Noisy Night

Eileen Browne’s hotly anticipated sequel to Handa’s Surprise is a warm, funny story about night time fears with a cast of nocturnal animals

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.

Publisher Review

Eileen Browne's brilliantly simple story showcases an incredible range of peculiar animals. Children will have great fun trying to mimic the noises... Browne's beautiful illustrations are vibrant and full of colour and any little readers with an interest in unusual animals will be delighted by these detailed paintings. * BookTrust *
