Holler Loudly is so LOUD that the pecans fall from the pecan trees and the pricky pear cacti spout more needles. He's so LOUD that every hound dog in the county rolls back his ears and tosses back his head to bay.
He's a LOUDER-than-life, tall-tale hero. But he's missing out on quiet times. And quiet times...can be just fine.
Holler Loudly is dedicated to my childhood library in Grandview, Missouri, which first welcomed me as a young reader, and to my local library here in Austin, Texas, which first welcomed me as a children's author.
"A rambunctious, can't-lose read-aloud no one will want to hush." –Kirkus Reviews
"Cynthia Leitich Smith's comical Southwestern tall tale perfectly captures the frustration that comes from being misunderstood. Barry Gott's illustrations are as colorful and active as Holler's intense voice." -BookPage
