A silly story about letting a lion cub take his nap. With a rollicking text and bright, humorous illustrations, QUIET! makes for an infectiously fun bedtime read."Chuckling and chortling, sniggering and snickering.The hyena was laughing. Laughing like hyenas do.But nobody knew what was so funny. 'Quiet!' said Papa Lion, as loud as he dared, in case his son was still sleeping."Mama and Papa Lion don't want any of the animals in the jungle to wake up Baby Leo while he takes his morning nap. As king of the animals, Papa Lion tells them that he will eat up any creature who makes too much noise. As the day passes, Papa Lion gets hungrier and hungrier, but no one is loud enough to wake up Baby Leo until, an unexpected noisemaker rumbles onto the scene!
