Ruby Roars

Margaret Wild and Kerry Argent
AUD $15.99

A noisy, exuberant story, ideal for young children and their parents to read (and ROAR) aloud together, by two of Australia's favourite picture-book makers.

When she was a baby, Ruby liked making popping noises with her dummy. 'Pop! Pop! Pop!'

When she was older, she tried making scary noises instead. 'Scrrr! Screekle! Scrunch!'

But she couldn't frighten anyone, not a frog, not a fish.

'Shivers!' thought Ruby.

What was the scariest noise she could make?

And she opened her mouth wide to find out.

'Beware, this story could provoke a wild rumpus.' Magpies

Both author and illustrator are donating a portion of their royalties to the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal.
