Sid the snail is searching for some peace and quiet so he can have a nap. Wherever he goes he bumps into his neighbours - chirping sparrows, singing foxes, buzzing bees, quacking ducks, playful squirrels, hooting owls and chattering badgers - each louder than the last! In the end he invites them all to a party, which is so noisy and so much fun, they all tire themselves out and fall to sleep. Ruth Green's charming story and enchanting illustrations will delight younger readers. This edition has been enhanced with audio narration and sound effects.
