A little boy with a VERY BIG VOICE, learns the perfect (and not so perfect) times to use it in Micol Ostow's uproarious picture book Sullivan, Who Is Always Too Loud, featuring brilliant illustrations by Brian Biggs.

Sullivan is a little boy with a BIG VOICE. He tries to be quiet, but the words just bubble up, and he has to let them out. He wakes Ella-baby. Mama can't hear herself think. And Teacher can't hear the drums over Sullivan's crashing cymbals.

He tries hard and eventually finds there are perfect times to be quiet, but more importantly perfect times to be LOUD.

With energetic text and bright, bold illustrations from Brian Biggs, Sullivan is sure to bring a ton of joy (and a bit of noise) to story time.

About the Author

Micol Ostow is often too loud. She lives and writes in Brooklyn, New York (which is also noisy and colorful in the best possible way), with her husband and two exuberant daughters. Sullivan, Who is Always Too Loud is her first picture book.

Brian Biggs is the illustrator of approximately one bazillion children's books (including Mac Barnett's Noisy by Night and Wendelin Van Draanen's Shredderman series), some of which he also wrote (such as The Space Walk and Everything Goes). Brian creates his pictures in an old, one-story garage studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He lives with his wife and teenage kids nearby in a three-story house, right next to some very noisy neighbors.
