Holler is LOUDso LOUD that the land rolls and rumbles, ripples and shimmies and shakes! He's got the makings of a tall-tale hero, if only he can control his voice.
It's not easy. After all, being loud is a big part of who Holler is.
What's your superpower? When I was your age, I was an expert crawdad catcher and lemonade seller and roller skater. I took home a stack of library books every Saturday. They inspired me. I started off as a poet and ended up a storyteller.
Now, I tell stories about heroes with superpowers. Like Holler with his LOUD voice. I tell stories about heroes like you.
"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
