Trixie TEN and has nine brothers and sisters, each of them noisy in his or her own way. Wanda ONE is always sneezing, Thomas TWO constantly has hiccups, and Nathaniel NINE loves pretending to be a lion!
Tired of her noisy siblings, Trixie TEN packs her bag and creeps away into the night in search of somewhere quiet. But it isn’t long until she begins to feel lonely . . . and realizes she’s actually much happier back where she belongs—with her noisy family.
Sarah Massini has illustrated several books for children including Oodles of Noodles, Dino in the Jungle!, If I Could Paint the World, and Where’s Caterpillar?
"Kids will enjoy the “I could do that” element of the fingerprint-based art, and, in fact, this title would be a great excuse to haul out the Ed Emberley fingerprint books and some ink pads for a DIY art session." -- BCCB
"The personable style and energy of the illustrations make this a worthwhile tale of siblings and relativity." -- School Library Journal
Praise for Over in the Meadow at the Big Ballet:
“Both text and illustrations capture perfectly the excitement and nervousness of putting on a production. The jewel-toned artwork done in ink, acrylic, and oil is energetic and endearing.” —School Library Journal
Praise for Oh, Harry!:
“Using a mix of bright, delightful full-page pictures, illustrations cut in half horizontally, or divided into boxes, this breezy tale has immediate appeal.” —Booklist
